According to him Miami football coaches are being banned from some Florida-area high schools over the Joker Phillips scandal at Florida.
Campbell made the claim in a post he wrote for the Miami New Times:
University of Florida coaches are accusing two Miami assistants of taking the incriminating pictures. Both universities are not commenting on the matter. However, head coaches at several high schools around the state have decided to ban Miami coaches from coming on their campuses.The 'incriminating pictures' he refers to are some of former Florida Gators wide receivers coach Joker Phillips talking with a high school recruit at an event--a direct violation of NCAA rules (he was only supposed to be observe and evaluate).
Those pictures--allegedly taken by a pair of Miami assistants--supposedly cost him his job.
Is he telling the truth? Who knows. It would be shocking if any high school coach admitted to doing so.
Since no one is going to confirm his story why even bring the accusations up? It doesn't make Miami look any better, but instead puts a spotlight on the rumor that Hurricane coaches may or may not have played a role in getting a rival coach to resign.
It does allow him to make one good point. Maybe if there were not so may restrictions on when coaches can or can't talk to recruits the right players would get a chance over the thugs. Maybe--if given the time and opportunity--coaches can discover that the crazy, talented running back doesn't understand what 'no' means from women or that drugs are bad (and illegal).
Maybe the good kids without the gaudy stats will get the chance they deserve.
His fans from back in the day are all too familiar with how he loves to stir up some controversy to make a valid point....
