UK spokesman denies rumors of Phillips resignation

UK athletics spokesman Tony Neely said reports that football coach Joker Phillips was resigning are "absolutely false."

Phillips has not discussed resigning with athletic director Mitch Barnhart, Neely said.

"They haven't even seen each other in the last 24 hours," Neely said.

Phillips is 12-17 in his third year as head coach of the Wildcats. UK's five-year bowl streak was snapped last year when the team went 5-7. Pressure on Phillips increased when the Wildcats lost 32-31 to Western Kentucky on Sept. 15.

A message left for Mark Carmony, Phillips' agent, was not immediately returned on Friday afternoon.

Kentucky (1-3, 0-1 Southeastern Conference) faces South Carolina (4-0, 2-0 SEC) kick off tomorrow at 7 p.m. at Commonwealth Stadium.
