Joker Phillips will no longer coach games for the University of Kentucky football team.
A former Wildcat himself, Phillips is now leaving home. As a native of the state, an assistant coach and offensive coordinator, Joker spent over 20 years of his life wearing the blue and white.
And while he says he's numb to it all. While he says he won't dwell on what is now the past, it's hard to believe he's indeed numb to the situation.
When defensive coordinator Rick Minter and senior wide receiver La'Rod King were asked how Joker's handled it all, they didn't exactly agree their boss wasn't hurt being asked to leave the place he loves.
Check out the video to hear from both guys on how they see the firing of Joker Phillips and how the coach handled the final weeks at the helm.
