On this morning’s radio show, we discussed a report from BleedBlueKentucky’s message boards that Joker Phillips was told he would return to the sidelines next season. It turns out that was nothing more than message board banter and the site’s moderator, Aaron Cordero, doesn’t support the rumor.
In fact, BleedBlueKentucky.com is now reporting that Mitch Barnhart and Joker Phillips met at one point over the last 24 hours and Joker was told he would not be the head coach of Kentucky football once the season ended. A “resignation is pending,” according to Cordero.
This is all from BleedBlueKentucky.com so believe what you will, but it is something KSR wanted to pass along.
As always, Go Cats.
UPDATE: A source close to the program tells KSR that earlier reports that Mitch Barnhart told Joker Phillips he would not be the head coach of Kentucky football once the season ended and that Joker will resign are “100% completely false.”
