Statement From Kentucky Coach Joker Phillips
We, as coaches, are measured on results. We didn’t get the results we had worked and hoped for, therefore change is needed. In my current 10-year stay at Kentucky, we’ve had some memorable moments as an assistant, coordinator and head coach. We’ve had the opportunity to coach some fine young men and I am grateful to have had the privilege of watching them grow as players, as students and as people.
I am very appreciative of Mitch Barnhart and Rich Brooks for providing the opportunity to have been the head coach here. Mitch is the best athletic director I’ve ever been associated with. He’s fair and honest and he’s “all in” in terms of student-athletes’ well-being. Rich is the best mentor a young coach could ever have. I learned a lot from him in terms of plowing ahead. They are dear friends. Dr. Lee Todd and Dr. Eli Capilouto have both been very supportive. I appreciate the Big Blue Nation and encourage the fans to stay behind their team going forward.
I love our players and am proud to be associated with them. I expect them to continue the behavior we have asked of them academically, socially and with football. I’m thankful for the staff’s hard work, dedication, and what they have done in coaching and mentoring the players. I’d like to thank my wife and family for all their support and for being behind me 100 percent.
Joker sounds like a class act. I wish him the best in his future. It's got to be tough on him and his family to have his tenure as the head coach of his alma mater turn out the way it has. He sounds like someone who has no bitterness toward the administration or their decision.
this may not be popular, but i'd hire him in a minute if i were looking for a good OC.
we aren't. we've got the best one in the sec.
Good post and I agree.
That was a nice speech by Joker, there. I wish both he and the Kentucky nation well.
I know that their focus isn't football, but I do think they try to do things the right way.
Fulmer wants that job baaaaaaaaaaad. He told me so at the TD club when he spoke. Said he does not understand why coaches cant win there. Said talent all around in about 6 states. I hope he gets it.
Charlie Strong or will he wait for a bigger offer from another school?
Fulmer could actually recruit there.
At least get them back to that prestigious level of beating Vandy.
