Sad news: Former UK coach Guy Morriss has died. His wife Jackie says he was surrounded by his loved ones and went peacefully. This is the story I produced when she and Guy asked me to explain to UK fans that he’d been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s.

Morriss coached the Bears from 2003-2007, and lead his team to one of the more memorable wins in 2004 over Texas A&M.
Morriss had been battling Alzheimer’s since 2016.
Rest in Peace and Sic ‘Em, Coach.
