    Wed, 7 Feb 2007 23:25:15 -0800

    ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports league and Dallas Cowboys sources have said San Diego Chargers defensive coordinator Wade Phillips will be named the Cowboys' new head coach. Phillips traveled to Dallas during the evening Wednesday, Feb. 7, after learning he was the team's choice. Contract details and signing a contract still need to be finalized but Phillips could be officially introduced as early as Thursday, Feb. 8.

    ===========================

    POSTED 7:13 a.m. EST, February 8, 2007

    'BOYS HIRING WADE
    pft.com

    More than two weeks after coach Bill Parcells resigned, the Dallas Cowboys have settled on a new coach.

    And it's not Norv Turner.


    Instead, the next coach reportedly will be Chargers defensive coordinator Wade Phillips.

    Phillips, a former coach of the Broncos and Bills and interim coach of the Falcons, was regarded as an early favorite for the job.
    He dropped off of the map, however, as the evidence began pointing directly to 49ers offensive coordinator Norv Turner.

    But reports surfaced recently that Turner didn't believe Jason Garrett was ready to be an offensive coordinator, which likely prompted owner Jerry Jones to conclude that Turner wasn't going to be the kind of know-his-place puppet, a possibly welcome contrast to the last four years that Jones has experienced with the admirably strong-willed Parcells.

    So Turner's hard-headedness apparently prompted Jones to turn his attention to someone who would take the staff as Jones has assembled it, and who wouldn't question the decisions made and to be made by the guy who signs the checks.

    And this fits with everything we've heard about Jones' intended approach moving forward.
    He wants someone who will do what Jones wants him to do.
    Period.

    Since Phillips, who like Turner drew zero interest for any of the other vacancies this year (or last year . . . or the prior year), will most likely be happy just to get a third chance to be the head coach, he's most likely willing to do whatever Jones wants him to do.

    Meanwhile, we think those odds making the Chargers the favorites to win the Super Bowl need to be revisited.
    San Diego has lost both of its coordinators to head-coaching jobs, and will breaking in new ones as it tries to build upon a 14-2 record in 2006.
    On top of that, coach Marty Schottenheimer is a lame duck who reportedly would have been fired if the Chargers could have landed the guy they were trying to land in the days after the team's season came to an abrupt end in the playoffs.

    sounds like the 'Boys may not be heading in an upward direction if Jones wants to run the entire show his way. T.O. may yet be the new offensive co-ordinator

    Wow, I was really expecting Rivera to be their next HC.

    Before all the talk springs up about Rivera becoming the Vikings DC instead, there is no way the Bears would release him from contract for a lateral move. Especially a lateral move to a division opponent.

    GOOD!
    That means that Jerry Jones's ego will keep them mediocre for YEARS to come!
    I hope that the Cowturds will SUCK for a long time!!!!

    The Chargers got screwed over though...lost both of their coordinators in one year!
    That is why letting the teams that are still in the playoffs shield their coaches until the playoffs is TOTAL BULLSHIT!!!

    The NFL should take the extra week before the Super Bowl and move it to just after the regular season...specifically so that assistant coaches have time to interview for openings...specifically the coaches on the playoff teams!
