Kentucky’s Joker Phillips is entering his second season as UK’s head football coach. Ditto Charlie Strong at Louisville. And that’s what makes the following news so interesting.
Clifford Snow served last year as Phillips’ director of football operations in Lexington. After one season — and in mid-June — he’s accepted the exact same position on Strong’s staff.
“I’m very excited to be joining Charlie Strong’s staff and the Louisville football family,” Snow said via press release. “This was an opportunity I couldn’t pass up, and I’m very proud to be a part of the Cardinals’ bright future.”
Now, for all anyone knows there might have been family issues involved. Maybe Phillips wanted rid of Snow. Or maybe Snow is just a really big horse-racing fan. But anytime someone leaves UK for U of L — or vice-versa — it makes news in the Bluegrass State.
And most people think long-term before switching jobs. So does that mean Snow believes Strong has a better future with the Cardinals than Phillips does with the Wildcats? Maybe.
Or it could be that Snow simply wanted to again work with Strong. The two men once served together on Lou Holtz’ staff at South Carolina.
