Wade Phillips: “I’ll Be Coaching One of These Days”

You can’t accuse Wade Phillips of hiding after getting the boot as coach of the Dallas Cowboys. Phillips and his wife Laurie turned up this morning at the annual C.A.R.E. (Chemical Awareness Resources & Education) Community Breakfast at the Belo Mansion, where actor John Larroquette was the guest speaker.

Asked after the breakfast about yesterday’s big ‘Boys win, Phillips said, “I’m just so proud of them. They needed that, and I knew they’d come through.” As for his life post-Cowboys, Phillips said, “I’ll be coaching one of these days. I’m not talking with anyone now, but after the season’s over, somebody will need a defensive coordinator.”

The several hundred C.A.R.E. attendees appreciated Phillips’ showing up, by the way. When he was introduced from the podium they gave him a rousing standing O–one that lasted a long, long time.
