GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - It didn't take Joker Phillips long to find another job.
The former Kentucky head coach landed at No. 4 Florida on Monday, joining the Gators as receivers coach and recruiting coordinator.
Florida coach Will Muschamp says Phillips will begin work Friday, adding that his ``background as a head coach and the number of years he has coached wide receivers will be a tremendous asset to our coaching staff and players. Joker is obviously very familiar with the Southeastern Conference and has always done a great job in recruiting.''
Phillips was a longtime receivers coach before taking over at Kentucky in 2010. He went 13-24 in three years with the Wildcats.
Former receivers Aubrey Hill left Florida in early August amid an NCAA investigation that involved his coaching tenure at Miami.
