Kentucky defensive coordinator Matt House is leaving the staff in Lexington to be the Kansas City Chiefs linebacker coach. House just wrapped up his thrid season with the Wildcats. Per ESPN:
The Chiefs had been close to hiring House last week, but the deal stalled when the sides couldn't agree on a buyout of House's Kentucky contract.
The Courier-Journal, citing terms of House's contract, reported that he would have to pay Kentucky $150,000 to buy out the final year of his deal.
For a time it appeared House would stay at Kentucky, but instead he has a deal that will bring him to Kansas City.
