Wade Phillips will not coach the 1-7 Dallas Cowboys when they come to New Meadowlands Stadium this weekend to face the New York Giants. Jason Garrett will. Phillips has reportedly been fired by the Cowboys.
The Cowboys are off to their worst start since 1989, with a 1-7 record. That record includes five straight losses.
This is the first time, in Dallas Cowboys history, that a head coach has been fired mid-season.
Phillips was the seventh coach in Cowboys history (take a look at the Cowboys coaches through the years) and came to the team with more than 30 years of NFL coaching experience. In his three+ seasons with the Cowboys, Phillips complied a 34-22 record.
Giants coach Tom Coughlin should have no trouble selling the Giants on the fact that the Cowboys will be out to show that all their troubles were Phillips fault when they meet this weekend.
