Lexington, Kentucky – Neal Brown lost his best friend in the world this week. John Schlarman, the Kentucky Wildcats offensive line coach, passed away after a lengthy battle with cancer.
Schlarman, 45, coached the offensive line at Troy when Neal Brown was the offensive coordinator there and then Brown brought him to Kentucky when he was named the offensive coordinator at Kentucky.
On Monday, Brown was in Lexington, Kentucky, for Schlarman’s memorial service and gave a beautiful, classy, inspiring tribute to his friend. During his words about Schlarman, Brown opened his tribute by reading passages from the Bible and said, “I love John Schlarman. I want that on record.”
