Default Would Phillips leave after a Super Bowl?

Health and commitment kept Wade a Texan this season. If we win Super Bowl, would he still have same commitment? He still yearns to be a head coach imo. There should be teams willing to give a defensive guru with Texans stats and a ring a chance to be head coach.

I hope McNair has a huge bonus plan to keep him in Houston. Wade is under contract thru 2013 but can leave for H.C. position. If he goes, I am not sure if we have his replacement in house.

Default Re: Would Phillips leave after a Super Bowl?

he may leave with or without winning a SB. Enjoy him while you have him because the only thing that moves more than the players are the coaches. Hopefully he retires here but somehow I don't think that is going to happen.

Hope he stays, but at least with his arrival Bob see's what a top tier DC can do versus a 2A High School DL coach that has connections. So hopefully he will seek top talent moving forward.

Wade Twittered the other day he was spending the byw week in Dallas and that him and his wife were in process of building a home in Houston. Im thinking he is done moving around.

He IS the highest paid DC in the league at 2.5 million per year soo.....

Even if the Texans dont win a SB and Wade gets a HC gig, he's gone, as it should be.

He is getting up there in age. The trend we see is for the younger OC/DC coordinators to get the Head coaching jobs. We are not really seeing older coaches, in their mid 60s who have never won superbowls getting the jobs. He may want a head coaching job, I just wonder if last year was his last real chance.

Default Re: Would Phillips leave after a Super Bowl?

Doesn't even have to win a SB. This defense just has to keep putting up good numbers and I'm afraid he's going to have a lot of opportunities to go be an HC.

And this is my biggest fear. We saw how the defense suffered when Wade was out at the end of last season. It's not just the defense and the players that make it work, it's his play-calling. We need that.

I hope, for my own sake, that he stays and decides that it's a lot more fun being a DC and stomping people's lights out than having to be an HC and deal with all the crap that falls in the HC's lap.

But I doubt that will happen. I can't see how he won't be an HC somewhere next year and I don't know if we can replace him.

These statements dance around the key point. Whether he retires or moves on to one more shot as a head coach, the bottom line is one day - hopefully in the far future - we'll lose him.

The key point IMHO is:

Are we grooming his successor? If so, then who is he?

My bet would be Vance Joseph if he doesn't get taken away at some point.

Default Re: Would Phillips leave after a Super Bowl?

Wade is clearly an ambitious individual. I remember quotes from him during the offseason about his record as a coach and how it seemed to him a slight that he didnt get more hc consideration. He'll leap at the chance if its presented at a decent organization. He's not grooming our next d coordinator. He's grooming his coordinator. Sorry to piss on the parade but he wont be back in 2013.

The San Diego Chargers will attempt to sign him after this season, and I think he will consider it. Last chance as head coach, AFC team, great city, decent QB and offense.

Needs defense.

I don't believe Wade's going anywhere. Here he has the potential of helping build a dynasty for which he has and will be given a great deal of the credit.
Going to San Diego will be having the end of his legacy following that of Johnny Unitas.

He says he wants to be a Head Coach again. I'm just taking him at his word.

I believe he will get offers, and because of his expressed desire, he will accept one. But, we will know in January or February.

So...your assuming we get to the Superbowl first.....
He might leave even if we dont......
He still thinks he can head coach. I would not put it past some owner to take a chance and sign him to be a head coach again.

Default Re: Would Phillips leave after a Super Bowl?

Even if Wade doesn't leave, how many more years do you think he want to do this job? He's getting up there in age and I hope he continues to coach here for a long time, but I hope we're also grooming a replacement d-coordinator behind the scenes. Someone like a Vance Joseph who has done a great job with the secondary over the past couple of years.
