Today the Kentucky Basketball family mourns the passing of the team’s former athletic trainer, Chris Simmons, who spent a decade with John Calipari in Lexington. Simmons followed Calipari from Memphis, his alma mater, and worked as the Wildcats’ head athletic trainer from 2009-10 until 2018-19, part of four Final Four runs and the 2012 national championship.

Calipari announced the news of Simmons’ death Wednesday morning.

“Chris Simmons, our trainer at Memphis who came w/ me here, passed away. He was old-school & would sleep in the dorm if it helped kids get ready to play. Never babied them but always protected. I loved him like a brother and appreciate everything he did for my family. RIP, Chris.”

Simmons was 44 years old.
