NFL: Dallas Cowboys To Retain Coach Wade Phillips

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has decided that head coach Wade Phillips will return next season despite the team's 34-3 loss Sunday to the Minnesota Vikings, a high-ranking team source said Monday.

There has been no decision on whether to negotiate an extension of Phillips' current contract, the source said. The Cowboys control Phillips' fate because they have an option for the 2010 season under terms of Phillips' original contract that will pay him close to the $3 million he earned this season when he served as the league's only head coach-defensive coordinator.


This is a happy day for Cowboys haters everywhere. Despite at long last getting over the dreaded month of December and winning a playoff game, there remain plenty skeptical of Phillips as a championship caliber head coach.

Count me among them.

(Also, the Roy Williams trade is the greatest trade in Detroit Lions history. Sad but true.)
