As a general rule of thumb, Boom…

… when Charles Robinson’s reporting something about your program, it’s not good news.

Former University of Florida wide receivers coach Joker Phillips resigned this week after the NCAA received a photo of the coach sitting in a restaurant with a high school recruit during a mandated dead period in recruiting, multiple sources told Yahoo Sports.

Three sources told Yahoo Sports the photo was turned over to the NCAA by an individual with ties to the Miami Hurricanes athletics program. Should the NCAA determine Phillips improperly recruited during a mandated dead period, it could be considered a major NCAA violation.

Moments like that remind me of this golden oldie.

    Joker’s resignation tells us there’s a fire.
    Was Phillips acting on his own accord or was Boom and Co. directing?
    It ‘s hard to imagine he was doing this without the HC’s knowledge (and favor).
    It may be time for the FU AD to call the AU AD and beg for advice.

      Yeah: UF will claim innocence and that they had no idea what Joker was doing on his own time. Will get off with a slap on the wrist

    I thought that Joker was a just and honorable man and his leaving the Florida program was surely because he would not dare bend a rule much less break one.


  7. Can he claim it was an accidental meeting in a restaurant?

    anyone would have wished they had written that. the totality of this entire piece of factual literature brings the karma to the top of the Hogtown cream.
    as an addendum; it appears that Joker has not showered up after all.

    His social media skills will be missed but not as much as Top Gun’s. There will be a pre-season retrospective of their combined works hosted by Charlie Weis, Dan Quinn and Steve Miller as part of the self-imposed punishment in addition to the sacrifice of Joker. The presentation will occur in the next smallest conference room (once it was determined that Charlie and the band could not fit into the smallest conference room a/k/a Continental Breakfast Center) of The Hampton Inn & Suites® perfectly situated in the heart of Downtown Gainesville’s Historic District,
