MOREHEAD - Andre Woodson, who led Kentucky to a pair of Bowl Games and passed for over 9,000 career yards from 2004-07, has been hired as the wide receivers coach at Morehead State.
“Andre is a terrific addition to our staff,” Morehead State Coach Rob Tenyer said. “Andre played football at the highest level of Division I, and all indications point to him being a fantastic college coach.”
Woodson earned four letters and played in 44 career games for the Southeastern Conference Wildcats. The quarterback completed 791-of-1,278 passes for 9,360 yards and 79 touchdowns.
He continues to hold Kentucky’s school record for career touchdown tosses. Woodson also ranks second all-time in passing yards, second in pass attempts and third in pass completions.
Woodson led Kentucky to the Music City Bowl in 2006 and 2007. He paced the conference in passing yards (3,515) as a junior and set a league record for TD passes (40) as a senior.
His final year, Woodson also established the NCAA’s all-time record for consecutive pass attempts without an interception (271).
After his playing career, Woodson served as a student assistant for the Wildcats in 2011 and graduate assistant in 2012.
Woodson was taken by the New York Giants in the sixth round of the 2008 National Football League Draft. He spent time with the Giants in 2008 and Washington Redskins in 2009.
Woodson most recently signed with the Hartford Colonels of the United Football League.
“Andre Woodson is a name college football fans know, especially in Kentucky,” Tenyer said. “Andre will be a big help to our offense on the field, plus he will be great with our recruiting efforts.”
A native of Radcliff, Woodson earned a bachelor’s degree in community communications & leadership development from UK in 2012. He and his wife, Erica, have been married since 2012.
