50 Cent Serves As a Source of Inspiration For a College Football Coach

50 Cent Serves As a Source of Inspiration For a College Football Coach

Last season, the Kentucky Wildcats football team finished a disappointing 5-9 in the tough SEC conference. So, you'd think that UK head coach Joker Phillips might be a little worried about the upcoming college football season and how it'll affect his job security. But, during a recent interview, he revealed that he's not worried at all. And, he has 50 Cent to thank for that.

Uh, wait, what?! Yep. Phillips admitted that he watched Fif's recent appearance on Oprah's Next Chapter and that he was inspired by some of what he had to say during his sit-down interview with Oprah.

"I know this might sound crazy," Phillips told the Louisville Courier-Journal recently, "but I was looking at Oprah—my wife had taped an Oprah show with 50 Cent. I like to listen to those types of interviews. And, 50 Cent said you either worry or pray, but you don't do both. And, I don't worry. I don't worry."

You know what this means, right, Kentucky players? It's time to get wins or get your coach fired die tryin'!
