Kentucky defensive coordinator Rick Minter has not been pleased with the overall play of Kentucky’s defense. Apparently he was even less pleased with a report on Kentucky Sports Radio that there had been a significant confrontation between him and head coach Joker Phillips over changes that needed to be made on defense during the loss at Louisville and for the Kent State game.
“I’m not going to talk about that. It didn’t happen. Now what’s next?” Minter said Tuesday when asked about the confrontation.
Remember, Phillips once worked under Minter when he was the head coach at Cincinnati and he made it clear when Phillips brought him to Kentucky that he knew who was the boss. However, Minter does rule the defense with an iron-hand. Ask any player or coach.
Confrontations also often happen with a staff — and probably should at times when a defense played as poorly as UK did at Louisville.
But rather than just not talk about it, Minter denied it even happened.
So what do you think? Did it happen or not?
