GAINESVILLE -- Saturday’s game against Kentucky will be a homecoming of sorts for two Florida coaches.
Wide receivers coach Joker Phillips was a four-year letterman at Kentucky and was later the team’s coach from 2010 to ’12.
“Anytime you spend a lot of time at a place, you have some great memories. I know as a former player and coach there, no question it’s going to be emotional [for him],” coach Will Muschamp said.
Meanwhile, Gators offensive coordinator Brent Pease coached at UK in 2001 and ’02 as its coordinator and quarterbacks coach.
“I’ve got a lot of friends there,” Pease said. “It’s a great place.”
• Wideouts Demarcus Robinson and Latroy Pittman will return to action Saturday.
Pittman, a sophomore, was suspended for Florida’s first three games. Robinson, a true freshman, was suspended for the Tennessee game for violating team rules.
