In case you missed it Sunday night, here is the statement Kentucky basketball coach John Calipari issued about Joker Phillips after the UK football coach lost his job.
Calipari: “I feel for my good friend Joker. He and I talked earlier today and I told him that people just wanted to win more. That doesn’t mean they don’t love him, because they still do. Everybody does. I reminded him that I’ve been fired before. I told him that as long as he learns from this, he’ll be fine. He’s a terrific football coach and a terrific person.”
