Arizona football: Samajie Grant and Nate Phillips want the WR Coach job

This would be fun

NCAA Football: Utah at Arizona Casey Sapio-USA TODAY Sports

The Arizona Wildcats currently have two assistant coach openings, one of those being the person in charge of the team’s wide receivers.

Well, two outgoing seniors from the wide receiving corps took to Twitter on Thursday to announce their candidacy for the job.

Yeah, that’s Samajie Grant and Nate Phillips putting their names in the hat as co-WR coaches at Arizona.

Obviously, this is unlikely to happen. But it’s fun to think about. Honestly, it wouldn’t be entirely surprising to see one or both of them as graduate assistants on the team, especially if a current GA is promoted to WR coach.

Another former player who went the GA route, B.J. Denker, also weighed in on Grant and Phillips’ desire to join the coaching staff.

Anyways, I understand this isn’t a thing that we’re likely to see, but admit it, it would be fun as hell.
