GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Florida receivers coach Joker Phillips has resigned, prompting coach Will Muschamp to turn the job over to former Gators standout quarterback Chris Leak.
 
      Leak will coach receivers for the 2014 season.
 
      Phillips says in a statement that he "decided to step down for personal reasons." Phillips joined the Florida staff in December 2012 and spent one year coaching Florida's receivers. Prior to that, he was Kentucky's head coach for three seasons (2010-12).
 
      Leak, who captained Florida's national championship team in 2006, ended his career as the school's all-time leader in passing yards (11,213), completions (895) and attempts (1,458). He joined Muschamp's staff last May and served as a graduate assistant last season.
