ESPN.com is reporting that Wade Phillips will be back as coach of the Dallas Cowboys next season, and that Jason Garrett will remain in charge of the offense, regardless of whether or not the team makes the playoffs.
In their article they quote owner Jerry Jones, who said…
“The coaches are in place. I’ve said that. How can I be any clearer?” Jones said. “Look, I’ve said that our coaching staff, as far as I’m concerned, is in place. I just want to make the statement rather than answer questions, because your questions imply certain things that I don’t want to imply.”
“I’m saying that when I look at where we are coaching staff-wise and when I look at where we are personnel wise, I see a team that is in place to compete for several years.”
I guess you can’t be anymore clearer than that.
I know that many of you would rather see a more fiery and aggressive coach, and were hoping for a change after the season, but it certainly looks like Phillips is here to stay.
There was a point in the season not long ago, where I really thought that Phillips’ job was in jeopardy, but the team seemed to turn it around after that mini-slump and kind of figured he worked his way back into the picture.
What do you guys think of Wade Phillips?
Do you think he will ultimately lead us to another Super Bowl?
