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:
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

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!
