He’s in no hurry for it to happen, but Kentucky co-offensive coordinator Darin Hinshaw does want to eventually be a head coach.

“Without a doubt. I will let the Good Lord handle that. I am the quarterback coach at Kentucky and want to make it the best in America,” said Hinshaw.

Hinshaw came to Kentucky after spending three years at Cincinnati with Eddie Gran. Before that, he coached three seasons at Tennessee, including 2012 when he was the recruiting coordinator. He was receivers coach at Memphis from 2007-09. Before that he worked at Georgia Southern and Middle Tennessee.

He saw the move from Cincinnati to Kentucky and the SEC as a step forward in his coaching resume. But he’s focused on UK, not what job he might be able to get in the future.

“I don’t ever look that far ahead. I make my job the best. I know if I ever leave a job and I am missed, then I did a pretty good job,” Hinshaw said. “But there are so many things that happen in this sport that make it so great.

“Eleven guys on field on the same page and to be awesome at that and have so many different inputs is not easy. The bigger the program, the more people you have that impact a kid whether academics, training room, weight room, boosters.

“In the process of going through all that, we take it one play at a time and can have a great product.”
