News Americas, NEW YORK, NY, Weds. Nov. 11, 2015: An apology has gotten Phil Simmons his job back as head coach of the senior West Indies squads.
Simmons, 52, returned after being suspended in September for questioning the continued omissions of players Dwayne Bravo and Kieron Pollard.
“I regret my public outburst during a press conference and the revelation of the vote that took place at the selection meeting,” Simmons said in an apology before getting his job back. “I extend a public apology to all whom I may have offended. I have personally apologized to my fellow selectors and the WICB and now do so again publicly. I am looking forward to putting this behind me and doing the job I enjoy with the West Indies’ senior men’s teams.”
Simmons played 26 Tests as an all-rounder for the West Indies between 1988 and 1997, and became head coach of the senior West Indies squads in March.
