MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Joker Phillips, receivers coach for the Minnesota Golden Gophers football program the past two seasons, has accepted a similar position at Notre Dame.
Phillips, 37, is the third assistant coach to leave the program.
Defensive coordinator David Gibbs went to the Denver Broncos, and defensive ends coach Mark Snyder to Ohio State. Also, offensive line coach Jared Smith was fired and linebackers coach Steve Stripling has interviewed for a job at Louisville.
The Gophers have hired Greg Hudson of Cincinnati to coach defensive ends or linebackers.
