Collins began his coaching career as a head coach at Hofstra, taking over the top job after complete his university degree in England at the age 22. He came to UK from St. John's, where he was an assistant, and worked as an assistant under Sam Wooten for two years.

"We're very grateful for the contributions Ian and [his wife] Jenny provided the University of Kentucky over the last 18 years," said UK athletics director Mitch Barnhart. "We feel it's time to change the direction of the program. We wish Ian and his staff nothing but the best."
