GAINESVILLE, Fla.-- The Florida Gators announced the addition of former Kentucky head coach Joker Phillips as the new wide receivers coach and recruiting coordinator on Monday afternoon.

Florida struggled at wideout this season and Phillips will bring a well-known name as well as extensive experience coaching the position.

Phillips, though, won't be left with an empty cupboard on the recruiting trail. The Gators have commitments from four wide receivers including Ahmad Fulwood (Jacksonville, Fla./Bishop Kenny), Alvin Bailey (Seffner, Fla./Armwood), Marqui Hawkins (Columbus, Ga./Carver) and Chris Thompson (Gainesville, Fla./Gainesville).
