West Coast coach Adam Simpson has flown back to Perth and won’t coach the Eagles against the Western Bulldogs at Etihad Stadium today.
Simpson had to fly back west at short notice due to family reasons.
Triple M Footy’s Jay Clark explained the news on the Sunday Rub today.
“Adam Simpson won’t coach versus the Western Bulldogs, he’s flown back to Perth to be with this family,” Jay-Z said.
“His daughter is unwell.
“She’s been with her family and getting some treatment as we speak, and Adam Simpson has gone back to Perth to be with those guys.
“[Eagles forward coach] Jaymie Graham will coach today in Adam Simpson’s place here against the Bulldogs.”
Everyone at the Triple M Footy team wishes the Simpson family well.
