Mark Zerof-USA TODAY Sports
On Wednesday it was reported that Florida wide receiver coach Joker Phillips was resigning due to personal reason, but on Thursday, Yahoo Sports reported that he was resigning due to a recruiting violation.
quote:

Former University of Florida wide receivers coach Joker Phillips resigned this week after the NCAA received a photo of the coach sitting in a restaurant with a high school recruit during a mandated dead period in recruiting, multiple sources told Yahoo Sports.

Three sources told Yahoo Sports the photo was turned over to the NCAA by an individual with ties to the Miami Hurricanes athletics program. Should the NCAA determine Phillips improperly recruited during a mandated dead period, it could be considered a major NCAA violation.
Phillips took over the wide receiver coaching position at Florida after the Gators' previous wide receivers coach, Aubrey Hill, resigned because of "personal reason". It was later investigated that Hill also committed recruiting violations while at Florida.

They call this a major violation but look the other way when coaches lend money to players. Florida has nothing to worry about
