He’s been at Florida since early December but the details of Joker Phillips’ contract weren’t released until today. According to ESPN.com’s Gator Nation, Phillips will make $265,000 per year over the next two seasons in Gainesville coaching the receivers and coordinating the recruiting efforts. It’s a rather low number for his position on the staff, but keep in mind he is cashing checks from UK for the next two years on top of that.
Phillips will receive $1.7 million from UK while coaching at Florida next season, plus another $850,000 in 2014. Add that all up and it’s somewhere around, let’s see, we’ll call it a lot of money. Like, over $3 million.
And how weird is that picture?
