R.I.P Bum
 
Quote:

Phillips was born in Orange, Texas, on Sept. 29, 1923. He graduated from Beaumont French High School and Stephen F. Austin College.Oail Andrew “Bum” Phillips Jr., who spent half his adult life as a football coach and every waking moment as the personification of all things Texan, died Friday at his ranch in Goliad.Phillips was three weeks past his 90th birthday and more than three decades removed from his heyday as head coach of the Oilers from 1975 through 1980. But he remains the personification of a time, a place and a team that remains deep in the hearts of everyone who saw them play.The end came on a cool autumn football weekend as Houston’s current pro team, the Texans, prepares to play Sunday with his son, Wade, serving as defensive coordinator. Family members said Wade Phillips visited with his father before rejoining the team for its trip to Kansas City.Bum Phillips was a product of a family that traced its roots to Texas’ frontier past, and he did his job dressed in boots, jeans and a white Stetson – except at the Astrodome, since his mama told him it was impolite to wear a hat indoors.He was, said one admirer, the “Will Rogers of the NFL,” justly famous for such sayings as, “There’s two kinds of coaches: them that’s been fired, and them that’s gonna be fired.”

Bum was class all of the way. I am fortunate to have talked to him on several occasions away from football.

RIP Bum. Texas has lost a good man.

Rest in peace Bum.

Maybe the defense plays inspired Sunday for Wade.

Man...

I normally don't comment in many RIP threads....And I'm not even old enough to remember Bum coaching.

But his legend speaks for itself.

RIP, and thoughts and prayers for Wade. Sad, sad day.
