LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — Neal Brown plans to bring the 'Air Raid' offense to Kentucky. He says it won't take long to install the up-tempo, passing offense, it can be done quickly.

The Wildcats new offensive coordinator said Tuesday he plans to employ the offense that helped Texas Tech's offense rank in the top 15 nationally during his three seasons there.

Brown, hired Dec. 10, learned the nuts-and-bolts of the offense playing wide receiver at Kentucky under coach Hal Mumme from 1998-2000. He adopted the philosophy as a coach and helped Troy's offense thrive with it for two years before going to the Red Raiders.

The Louisville native faces a big challenge with the Wildcats, whose offense ranked next to last in the Southeastern Conference this past season at 315 yards per game.
