NEW YORK » Phil Simms is headed to the stu­dio.

A fix­ture as a game an­a­lyst at CBS for two decades, Simms will join the net­work’s “NFL To­day” cast for the up­com­ing sea­son.

Simms re­cently was re­placed as the top game an­a­lyst at CBS by Tony Romo af­ter the Cow­boys quar­ter­back re­tired.

He and CBS Sports Pres­i­dent Sean McManus had been dis­cussing Simms even­tu­ally mov­ing to “NFL To­day” for sev­eral years. Simms has ex­pe­ri­ence in a sim­i­lar set­ting from his work on Showtime’s “In­side The NFL.”

“When Sean told me he wanted me in the stu­dio, I thought about it a bit,” Simms said Wed­nes­day. “I told him I would like to do (games) a bit longer. I love do­ing the games, meet­ing dur­ing the week with coaches and play­ers, get­ting the in­side info. It is the best.

“But I also thought that I will work in New York and watch all the games in­stead of prep­ping for two teams, and will have all week to study the league, and that re­ally in­trigued me.”
