Since being hired more than four months ago, Kentucky head football coach Mark Stoops has generated local and national headlines. That buzz, however, was about about his work off the field, namely and hiring a coaching staff and putting together the most highly touted recruiting class in recent school history.

With spring practice starting on Monday, we can finally begin to talk about his work on the field.

It will be a while before fans are able to see any tangible progress, but Edward Aschoff of ESPN.com wrote about Stoops beginning the process of turning around the program on Tuesday. Here's an excerpt from the end of the piece:

There was a record crowd around to celebrate with him on national signing day and the athletic department has been very aggressive about upgrading the football facilities. The school plans to spend approximately $110 million on renovations to Commonwealth Stadium and the Nutter Training Center.

Stoops is building from within, while the school builds around him. This won't be a quick fix, but Stoops feels he'll have what he needs to make Kentucky relevant in the SEC again.

"We have everything that we need and with the resources with the things that we're building and the commitment that they have to upgrading our facilities," Stoops said, "we're going to have everything we need to be successful and competitive in this league."
