Rumour – Cowboys on the verge of firing Wade Phillips

Written by Kevin Lee
on September 22, 2010


UPDATE – 2pm EST – Jon Gruden has a clause in his MNF contract that won’t allow him to leave his analyst position to take the Cowboys HC position if Phillips was fired. As well, Tony Dungee has gone on record as saying he won’t coach this year.

It shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone who follows the NFL that Dallas Cowboys head coach Wade Phillips is on a short leash. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has gone on the record saying that the 0-2 start is “quite a setback” for the organization.

Word now comes from two great sources close to the organization that Jones is gauging interest from a few former NFL head coaches currently working on TV networks. CBS in-studio analyst Bill Cowher is Jones number one choice to replace Phillips. His second choice is NFL Network/Fox analyst Brian Billick. Both Cowher and Billick have Super Bowl rings, something Jones really wants to have when it comes to who will be leading his struggling team.

Many feel the players have tuned out Phillips and last Friday was a clear example of how this situation continues to snowball. Phillips got into details on Monday about Friday’s practice. “Do I think it could be better? Sure,” Phillips said. “Do I think we had a bad practice Friday? Yes, we told them that in the meeting. We went back over it and said, ‘Hey, we didn’t practice well enough.’” How does the same thing occur that has happened over the past two years under Phillips watch? Enough is enough and now is the time for Jones to pull the plug on him. It’s plain to see that the team has no identity and have tuned out Phillips.

I am told that if the Cowboys lose to the Houston Texans on Sunday that Jones won’t hesitate in firing Phillips. Two other possible candidates that have surfaced are Marty Schottenheimer and Steve Mariucci. Schottenheimer who last patrolled the sidelines for San Diego back in 2006-07, was fired by the Chargers in February of 2007. His 5-13 playoff record is definitely not appealing. While Mariucci has a 3-4 playoff record, he hasn’t coached since the 2005 season after a three year stint in Detroit.

Regardless, of what happens in Houston this Sunday, Jones needs to fire Phillips if he hopes to have his team in the playoffs come January. I for one truly believe one of the 4 names I have mentioned will be wearing that Star on their hat come early next week.

More to come as the week unfolds. I can be contacted at kevinlee@prosportsblogging.com anytime.

 Update at 2pm EST – Rumour – Cowboys on the verge of firing Wade Phillips*|*Pro Sports Blogging

Read this over at a Bucs message board I frequent. He referenced and linked me to the article above. Take it as you wish.
 Poster over at Bucs Board said:
So while I was driving around during work earlier, I was listening to 105.3 The Ticket (Dallas radio). And they had a guy from ProSportsBlogging who has a story today saying that by Monday, Wade Phillips will be fired. He said he has a number of respectable sources and the radio hosts agreed (and were surprised) that they were credible sources, but they wouldn't say who out of respect for those sources.

And they also reported that Bill Cowher or Brian Billick may replace Phillips.

This is all coming from ProSportsBlogging and they spent 30 minutes talking about PSB and their credibility and they ARE credible, but just not very well known nationally. They have full-season credentials with NFL, NHL, NBA and MLB teams and are respected amongst all the teams/leagues. Last year, they broke a big trade in the NHL before anyone else did.

Not saying it's going to happen, but it's out there. And about 1 hour after they were done interviewing Kevin Lee (who broke the story), they had a local media member saying that he believes ProSportsBlogging b/c he's been noticing some fishy stuf going around Valley Ranch.

This will either make or break ProSportsBlogging.

I think Cowher is the most realistic out of all the names though I bet Jerry really wanted Gruden. I think the only reason why Cowher isn't on the sidelines right now is because the Cowboys job wasn't available.

That the Superbowl is played at this season. We go 0-3 which is not that far fetched at this point and he's gone.

Too late to do that. No coach is going to come in from the outside and turn the Cowboys around this season. And for all we know they may not even need a new coach....if they get a win in Houston on Sunday all this talk will be dead.

Just another 0-2 overreaction I think. He should have fired him at the end of last season. Jerry has gotten way too soft. Wade was always a bad head coach. I don't know why he kept him around for so long.

No, but if you knew jacks**t, you would understand that this team has all the talent in the world. It needs someone to be a leader, Phillips is not a leader. Phillips is a defensive mind, not someone who can wear his heart on his sleeve for the team. Bringing in someone like Cowher would be exponentially helpful. Phillips prances around making excuses and not holding guys accountable, Cowher wouldn't play that s**t. If we end up getting Cowher, I am propping EVERYONE in this thread.

f**k that, Cowher better stay far from Dallas. Wade aint the greatest coach, but I thought he was a great defensive mind. Got that 3-4 defense running smooth, but I see why the move would get made. s**ts bout to be mad interesting

Only place I've heard Cowher being linked to was Carolina, and that's only because his family is there. I don't think he's headed to the Cowboys at all, keep dreaming Cowgirl fan.

^Maybe not, but he left the team in way better position than it was when he got there.

I personally wouldn't mind if Wade is gone. Fire the entire coaching staff far as I'm concerned.
