Ex-Cowboys coach Phillips: My record better than Garrett’s
It’s been a rough few months for Wade Phillips since the Houston Texans fired him as their defensive coordinator.
He’s still without a job, and he’s let everyone know on Twitter while he continues to wait for a phone call.
Phillips was hired as head coach of the Dallas Cowboys in 2007, but going 34-22 in three and a half seasons wasn’t good enough for team owner Jerry Jones.
However, in the four seasons since Phillips was fired, the Cowboys have gone 29-27 under Jason Garrett.
That got Phillips thinking on Thursday, and he decided to tweet about it.

My surprise was that Jason and I had coached the same number of games. Not the record – time passes quickly -I wish Jason & Cowboys well

This wasn’t the first time he has vented on Twitter.
Since he was let go by the Texans in early January, Phillips has let the world know he’s out of work.
Disappointed not even an interview after 7 straight full seasons of top 10 D with 3 different teams. Last 5 times as D C= playoffs1st yr
