Wes Phillips Admits to DWI, Fails to Meet NFL and Vikings’ Expectations

In his first public statement following his arrest for drunken driving last Friday, Wesley Phillips, the offensive coordinator for the Vikings, expressed his regret. Phillips acknowledged his failure to meet both personal and official standards set by the NFL and the Vikings. He said he believes in being responsible for his actions, learning from his mistakes, and dealing with any repercussions. He did not want his actions to take away from the team’s accomplishments on the field. The Vikings allowed Phillips to accompany the team to a game in Las Vegas on Sunday, despite his arrest. Phillips declined to speculate on his presence for the Vikings’ game in Cincinnati on Saturday, stating the decision was not his to make and he would continue coaching until directed otherwise.
