Jimmy Phillips (born 8 February 1966 in Bolton, Lancashire) is a former professional football player, and Academy Director at Bolton Wanderers after spending a number of years as youth team coach. In his playing career he turned out for a number of clubs, including Bolton, Middlesbrough, Oxford United and Rangers. Whilst at Bolton he played in the 1995 Football League Cup Final.

Coaching career

On 9 October 2012, Phillips was appointed joint caretaker manager of Bolton Wanderers alongside Sammy Lee following the sacking of Owen Coyle.[1] However, Phillips took control of first team affairs, with Lee and Julian Darby assisting him.

Phillips first game in temporary charge saw him lead his hometown club to a 3-2 victory over Bristol City at the Reebok Stadium with Bolton having recovered from being two goals down early in the game.[2] His second match in caretaker charge came at Wolverhampton Wanderers Molineux Stadium which ended in a 2-2 draw with Mark Davies scoring a 90th minute equaliser for Bolton.

On 23 October 2012, Crystal Palace confirmed that manager Dougie Freedman had left the club for Bolton wanderers. Bolton were yet to confirm the appointment though and Phillips then confirmed he would be in charge of the next match against Middlesbrough whilst Freedman was still in discussions with Gartside.[3] Bolton lost 2-1. When Freedman was appointed, Phillips went back to coaching the youth team.
