Wade Phillips reminds us all he’s a better coach than Jason Garrett

Wade PhillipsWade Phillips is still unemployed since being fired as defensive coordinator of the Houston Texans in January, and he is working hard to get a new gig.

A little over a week after being fired by the Texans, Phillips went on Twitter and touted his accomplishments as a coach in some sort of marketing move:

Two months later, Phillips went back to Twitter to promote himself.

On Thursday, Phillips sent a tweet comparing himself to current Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett, who replaced him during the 2010 season.

Looks like Wade does have a little bit of his dad’s personality in him.

Wade is 66 and while he may not be head coaching material, he certainly is a good defensive coordinator. I’m surprised nobody has picked him up yet. Maybe he needs to keep tweeting more stats!

    Good for Wade. He comes off as the strong, silent type and those kind of guys unfortunately get glossed over for the more ‘personable’ type. Any team would be fortunate to have him as DC.

    I don’t know what teams are waiting for. He’s very good as a DC

    Though they wouldn’t admit it, I bet there is at least one NFL GM who got wind of this and thought to themselves ‘wait, Wade Phillips is unemployed?’
