LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Joker Phillips will be on the sidelines for his last game as coach of the Kentucky Wildcats, Saturday in Knoxville. Monday, Phillips left his options open as to his future.
Joker said, "I need to rest, I'm not closing the door on anything." Then looking at Herald-Leader columnist Mark Story, Phillips asked. "You got a job at your place?" When Story said yes, Phillips said, "Hey I would love to, love to. Be able to write my story from home, in my pajamas and then push send and have somebody edit it for me."
Kentucky will try to beat Tennessee for the second straight year Saturday. Last November the Cats ended a 26 year losing streak to the Vols, winning in Commonwealth Stadium 10-7. Tennessee coach Derek Dooley was fired Sunday but he will not be on the sidelines for the Vols final game.
Kickoff will be at 12:21pm at Neyland Stadium. SEC Network coverage will begin at noon on WKYT.
