Former NFL and Kentucky quarterback Andre' Woodson is in his first season as a student assistant for the Wildcats, working with the quarterbacks.

Woodson, a native of Radcliff, Ky., played at UK from 2004-07. The three-year starter totaled 9,360 yards passing with 79 touchdowns en route to becoming one of the most prolific quarterbacks in UK football history. In 2006, he led the Wildcats to an 8-5 record and their first bowl win in 22 years with a victory over Clemson in the Music City Bowl. He was named MVP of that bowl game. Woodson not only led Kentucky but also led the SEC in passing yards with 3,515 and became only the second UK quarterback to throw 30 or more touchdowns in a single season.

Woodson had a huge senior season in 2007, completing 63.1 percent of his passes (327 for 518) for 3,709 yards with 40 touchdowns and just 11 interceptions. The two-time All-SEC selection helped the Wildcats witness some of the most exciting moments in school history as UK notched its first win over a Top-10 opponent in 30 years with a dramatic comeback win over No. 9 Louisville. The Cats reached the Top-10 rankings for the first time since 1977 and the popular "ESPN GameDay" crew made its first visit to campus. UK also knocked off No. 1-ranked LSU - the eventual national champion - with a 43-37 triple-overtime thriller. The campaign was capped with another Music City Bowl win, this time over traditional power Florida State, and Woodson was again the MVP. Woodson broke Danny Wuerffel's SEC record for passing touchdowns in one season with 40 TDs. He also broke Jared Lorenzen's UK record of 78 career touchdown passes and held the NCAA record for consecutive pass attempts without an interception at 325 until it was broken by Russell Wilson during the 2008-09 seasons (379).

In 2008, Woodson was drafted in the sixth round by the New York Giants and was later was signed by the Washington Redskins before returning to UK in 2011 to work on his bachelor's degree in community communications and leadership development.
