GAINESVILLE, Fla. (WBKO) -- "Come play wide receiver for the Joker." Don't expect to hear that anymore. At least not at the University of Florida.
Franklin native and former UK Head Football Coach Joker Phillips has resigned as wide receivers coach in Gainesville.
In a statement Phillips said he's stepping down due to "personal reasons."
Brett McMurphy with ESPN is reporting Phillips was forced to resign as a result of possible NCAA recruiting violations.
Phillips had been at Florida since 2012, after spending three years manning the helm at UK.
