Caleb Phillips completed his fifth season as an assistant coach at the University of Iowa in 2013.

Phillips is responsible for the uneven bars squad, which is consistently ranked in the top 20 in the country. In 2013, Phillips led the bar squad to a 49.115 NCAA Regional Qualifying Score, ranking 16th nationally. In 2012, Phillips coached the bar team to a 49.100 Regional Qualifying Score, ranking 13th nationally.

The Hawkeyes have received NCAA postseason berths every year he has been on staff. Additionally, Phillips has helped coach two Hawkeye gymnasts, Houry Gebeshian and Rebecca Simbhudas, to an NCAA Championship appearance.

In 2011, Phillips was named the North Central Region Assistant Co-Coach of the Year with fellow assistant Linas Gaveika. Under Phillips' guidance, Gebeshian, Jessa Hansen and Simbhudas were selected to the All-Big Ten team.

With the help of Phillips, Iowa placed third at the Big Ten Championships in 2010, its best finish in six years. Gebeshian, Hansen and Simbhudas took home All-Big Ten honors, and Gebeshian won the Big Ten beam title, just the second in program history.

Prior to joining the Iowa staff, Phillips spent four years as an assistant coach at Southern Utah. He helped lead Southern Utah to two NCAA Regional appearances and helped send two competitors to NCAA Championships -- Leah Sakhitab in 2005 and Elise Wheeler in 2008. Phillips coached three athletes to NCAA Regionals in 2006 and four in 2007.

Phillips has a Bachelor's degree in psychology from Southern Utah. He and his wife, Ashley, have two children -- Cable and Beck.
