UF Wide Receivers Coach Joker Phillips Resigns; Chris Leak To Take Over

By on June 12th, 2014

Gator Nation is still wondering today why Florida wide receivers coach Joker Phillips suddenly resigned on Wednesday.

An official announcement came in a prepared statement late yesterday but there was no reason given for Phillips’ resignation.  The statement said his resignation came for “personal reasons.”

He is replaced by Leak who has been serving as a graduate assistant with the program but he has no experience ever coaching the position.

Leak becomes Florida’s fourth wide receivers coach in the past four seasons and that is a position that has struggled in recent seasons.
