Cowboys | Phillips the choice as new head coach
Wed, 7 Feb 2007 23:25:15 -0800

ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports league and Dallas Cowboys sources have said San Diego Chargers defensive coordinator Wade Phillips will be named the Cowboys' new head coach. Phillips traveled to Dallas during the evening Wednesday, Feb. 7, after learning he was the team's choice. Contract details and signing a contract still need to be finalized but Phillips could be officially introduced as early as Thursday, Feb. 8.

I think he's the perfect fit for them. He coached up San Diego's D into one of the best in the league. Dallas runs the same 3-4 and already have the type of playmakers San Diego has. I expect Ware to compete for Defensive Player of the Year next season.

Ha...all I have to say is I'm glad he's their head coach. They could've done better.

The short answer is no. As far as the OC, Jerry (Al Davis) Jones made that choice before hiring Phillips. It's Jason Garrett, Aikman's former back up.

i would be quite pissed if he was our choice. he has proved he doesn't really offer much as a head coach. they may have a great d but lets see how much they win. bad choice.

The Cowboys run a 3-4 defense and Wade is a 4-3 type coach..
Will be interesting to see how he makes adjustments on defense and how he handles T.O

Parcells did a pretty good job of not letting TO become a distraction on the Cowboys team. I'll be suprised if Phillips can pull that off.
