Rich Brooks was born August 20, 1941, Forest, California, United States and is a football coach and the head football coach at the University of Kentucky. Brooks is best known for spending 18 seasons at the University of Oregon, winning the Paul "Bear" Bryant Award for national coach of the year after leading Oregon to the Rose Bowl in 1994.

On December 23, 2006, Kentucky Athletics Director Mitch Barnhart announced that the University and Brooks had agreed to a contract extension for four years, plus an additional year at the University's option. Brooks' base pay is $1 million per year plus other incentives.

In 2007 the Kentucky Wildcats program under Brooks compiled a 8-5 won-loss record and 3-5 in the SEC East including wins over the #1 ranked LSU Tigers and intrastate rival #8 ranked Louisville Cardinals. Kentucky rose to as high as #8 in the AP poll. The Wildcats closed out their campaign in the 2007 Music City Bowl, this time defeating the Florida State Seminoles by a score of 35-28. Brooks overall record at UK is 31-38, and 13-31 in the SEC. Brooks has never beaten SEC East rivals South Carolina, Florida and Tennessee, losing six straight to each.

On January 18, 2008, the UK Athletics Department announced that when Brooks chooses to retire, former UK player and current UK offensive coordinator Joker Phillips will become UK Football's next head coach. No date has been set for this transition, but this action was taken to provide prospective recruits some assurance that there will be a smooth transition whenever Brooks chooses to step down.

In 2008 the Wildcats went 7-6, defeating favored East Carolina University, the Conference USA champions, in the 2009 Liberty Bowl. Brooks became the first Kentucky coach to win bowl games in three consecutive years. Brooks's Kentucky team currently holds the nation's second longest out of conference winning streak: 15 straight wins, second only to Louisiana State University.

A book scheduled to release in July, 2009 will discuss the dramatic turn-around Brooks has had at Kentucky, going from a probation plagued period of defeat, to becoming the first UK coach to ever win three consecutive bowl games. The book is authored by current play-by-play Kentucky radio announcer, Tom Leach.

The longest time any UK coach has held the job is nine years; Brooks is going into his seventh year in 2009.
