After spending a season controlling the quality at Ohio State, former Kentucky head coach Joker Phillips is taking his talents down I-71 south to coach wide receivers at the University of Cincinnati. First reported by Football Scoop, Phillips will join former Ohio State defensive coordinator Luke Fickell in the Queen City.
It will be Phillips’ fourth job since he was fired at Kentucky. He coached Florida’s receivers for a year before he was forced to resign for recruiting violations in 2014. He spent the 2015 season with the Cleveland Browns until head coach Mike Pettine was fired.
Now in Stoops’ backyard, he’ll likely battle Vince Marrow for a few recruits. I’ll take Vince over the Photoshop extraordinaire.
