UF WR coach resigns

so news for today is that Joker Phillips has resigned as WR coach at UF and Chris Leak will take over. Crazy to think that an ex QB will now coach WR's, wonder what effect that will have on any of the incoming WR's and '15 WR's.

Any thoughts from TKP.. any potential VT targets?

Well, he probably spent time as a TE. They're like WR's but taller, stronger and with different letters.

Danny caught that ball.

Friends don't let 5 star friends commit to UVA.

But what about all of his Joker tweets to recruits? "Come play for the Chris" just doesn't have the same ring to it or the photoshop potential.

Maybe he should have spent more time coaching and less time tweeting his photoshop masterpieces.

Never half-ass two things. Whole-ass one thing.

looks like he should have used #choppinwood instead, might still have had a job today

Crazier than an ex-long snapper coaching running backs? [Sorry I couldn't resist...]

Not as crazy as having a cop as a head coach.

Bucky Hodges is open

Had to repost, it's just too good

Mmmmmm

I'm already going to Hell. At this point it's pretty much "Go big or go home."

Marcus Lewis is committed to UF but I seriously doubt he decommits and comes back to the good guys.

Forced to resign due to recruting violations . Bagman ?? Fall Guy ? Floridia finally got caught. Good stuff! Phillips&Floridia known for their negative recruting tactics.

Floridia? Is that some new probiotic product?

(Sorry for being that guy, but I am only joking about his typo because tech46 did it twice in the same post)

Thank's for pointing out my mistake , I appreciate it. Is always reassuring to know that the grammer police are on duty.

Don't you mean spelling police?

Whatever pleases you.

There are some strange stuff going on in the SEC.

Man I'm going to miss those strange pictures on twitter

Crazy to think that an ex QB will now coach WR's,

I disagree here, I think its probably one of the more natural places that a coach could be "out of position" on offense. A former QB would be good at coaching route running and I would think would be able to see incorrect routes more easily in drills where he's standing near the QB or throwing to the WRs himself since he's used to seeing routes from that angle. Also QBs usually have a better grasp on all the moving parts of the offense than other players do.

yeah maybe i didn't word that as well as I saw it in my head. It was more of crazy that UF couldn't get anyone better/more experience than an ex QB.

Maybe they've been wanting to bring Leak on and this was the spot open. Kinda like Cornell Brown coaching Whips, just because we want him here.

Jim Cavanaugh was a QB in college and QB's coach for much of his early career. Every good coach will have the ability to coach multiple positions.

Any room for him on our staff? Whit agreed that we need to add positions... Joker wouldn't be a bad pickup...

"And it is caught, it is caught for a touchdown"

Joker is being accused of recruiting violations by ESPN (no credible sources), I think we need to figure out the truth there before bringing him in as a recruiter.

Yea, then no. A Joker, A Smoker, and A Midnight Toker.. we'll stay away from all 3.

"And it is caught, it is caught for a touchdown"

I've always called him Maurice, myself.

It was a catch
