08:03 AM ET 10.07 | Fired as Dallas Cowboys coach after a 1-7 start in his fourth season working for Jerry Jones, Houston Texans defensive coordinator Wade Phillips wants one last shot as top dog. He owns a .581 winning percentage as a head coach with an 83-64 record, including playoffs. The son of iconic 89-year-old former Houston Oilers head coach Bum Phillips, Wade would love to get one last shot to show what he can do as sideline head of a franchise. "I'd love to be a head coach again,'' Phillips told USA TODAY Sports. "I don't think I'll get that opportunity. I think just age. And I think people tend to think I wasn't successful as a head coach but only as a defensive coordinator. "They don't look at my record. They say, 'Oh, you got fired here. You got fired there. So you're not a good head coach.' "But that's all right, I love it here.''

Why ????

Some people don't know when they've got it good. The knock on him at Dallas was that he let the players run all over him. Can't lead a team that way.

Are you two dating? 'cause it sounds like that.

No Wade... It's not because of your age that you won't get another head coaching job.

Whoa! Too funny. Whatever happened to your motto of "You see how easy it is to respond to a comment without a personal attack on the author of the comment........try it! "

It's OK Buck. I forgive you. Probably just a bad hair day. It will pass and the sun will come up tomorrow. You will see.

Yes. And to my disappointment, you are right. I grudgingly give them credit. They are that good.
