Who is Gary Philips?

Phillips was in charge of Sydney Olympic in the 2001–2002 and 2002–2003 seasons, winning the title in 2001–2002, before he was extraordinarily dismissed the following season.

After working in a coaching capacity for the Asian Football Confederation in Kuala Lumpur, Phillips took over as head coach and technical director of Malaysian Premier League side Sabah FA in December 2009 and guided the team to Super League promotion in 7 months. After a tough start to life in the Super League as the team was rocked by injury and forced to play eight of their first 12 matches on the road, Phillips was dismissed on 5 May 2011, replaced by former Sabah player and coach of Sabah President's Cup team Justin Ganai.

In February 2015, he took over as manager of Papua New Guinea women's national football team.

Shortly following the conclusion of the 2015 Malaysia Premier League season, Phillips returned to Malaysia and signed a contract with NS Matrix F.C.. Some of his first signings were all former A-League players.

He coached the Davao Aguilas during the 2017 season until he was replaced midseason in September 2017 by Marlon Maro.
In July 2019, Phillips was appointed Technical Director for the Nepal national team. He was signed on a one-year contract, with his salary paid by the Asian Football Confederation.
