Statewide recruiting  may have gotten a little tougher for Charlie Strong.

Greg Nord

Greg Nord, one of the casualties of Steve Kragthorpe’s disastrous three-year term at the University of Louisville, is going to be coaching special teams and tight ends at the University of Kentucky, according to reports.

Nord, who served under four coaches as a U of L assistant for 15 years, had joined the Illinois football coaching staff in December to work with Paul Petrino in his role as offensive coordinator.

A former UK player, Nord is a household name in the Louisville area and is widely respected by high school football coaches throughout the state.
