He has a proven track record of putting exciting, electric offenses on the field and he also has built a strong reputation of developing his players. With the returning players we have on offense and the pieces that we are putting together now in recruiting, we have the potential to be much improved.”Instead, Lindsey has jumped at another opportunity.Chip Lindsey was introduced as head coach of Troy football today.He replaces the wildly successful Neal Brown, who took over for Dana Holgorsen at West Virginia.Trojan Nation help us welcome Chip Lindsey (@CLindsey_TROY) and his family back home as Troy’s 22nd head football coach.? ➡️ https://t.co/eJETznxcMe#OneTROY pic.twitter.com/BTlFqR9NWT— Troy Trojans Football ?x⚔️ (@TroyTrojansFB) January 10, 2019Lindsey coached quarterbacks at Troy in 2010, before taking jobs at Southern Miss, Arizona State, and then Auburn and Kansas. He also has a ton of Alabama high school experience, which should be invaluable in recruiting the region.It leaves a huge hole in the KU staff, and one that brings the most questions with the Les Miles era in Lawrence.
