Joker Phillips Will Coach the Rest of the Season

The only odd thing about Mitch Barnhart's letter from Sunday announcing Joker Phillips' firing was the fact that it didn't say whether Phillips would finish out the year. Well, now we know:

The only reason why Phillips shouldn't finish out the year is if he didn't want to. He's by all accounts a good guy, and his roots at UK run as deep as anyone's can with one school. It's good to hear he'll get a chance to be sent off with a win over Samford in his final home game in Lexington.
