Is Wade Phillips about to become the Dallas Cowboys’ next head coach? That’s what a source is telling the Dallas Morning News. Sure hope he brings his dad’s ostrich-skin cowboy boots and ten-gallon hats to the games.
Jokes aside, Phillips does bring a sound record as a defensive coordinator, is a proponent of the 3-4 defense that Bill Parcells installed during his tenure as Cowboys head coach, and a 48-39 regular season record as a head coach. Apparently, if the Dallas Morning News’ report is true, all of this helped him win the job over his closest rival, Norv Turner, a great offensive coordinator with poor-to-middling results as a head coach.
