Thank you Bum for orchestrating what was the magic of Luv Ya Blue. I too was at that post championship game loss pep rally. It was so loud inside the dome that night, I dare say it would set the modern day record for loudest stadium - step aside Kansas City, the loudest cheers I'm aware of were for Bum and his Blue.

Thank you Bum for all that you were, a Texas legend. RIP.

Is there a Bum Phillips signature or banner we can wear?

One of the all-time greats.

What a sad way to start the day. I'll try to get our 4th graders to wear a yellow ribbon during our game today in his memory. We lost a good coach, a great texan, but an even better man. May God bless the family and give them comfort during these times.

Now let's get fired up out there tomorrow and Win One for Bum!!

Definitely one of my mentors in a world so devoid of heroes. Mr. McNair, it's time we got that statue of Bum up at Reliant, and while we're at it, add Earl's as well!

90 years is indeed a good run but I still think that it's too short a time to have someone like Bum Phillips around. That's the greatest man to ever coach football in this town and a damn fine human being.

Wade on his Dad.

Quote:
Bum Phillips was as country as a cowboy could be.

A Texas-size cowboy hat, pointed boots to fit in stirrups, dusty blue jeans and a belt buckle as big as Goliad, where he died Friday night with his wife Debbie and other family members present.

Most of all, though, Phillips always had a warm smile and a firm handshake for just about everyone he met.

“I was blessed to have him as a father and coach,” Wade Phillips said late Friday night. “I got to coach with him for 11 years. He taught me everything I know about coaching. He taught me right and wrong. He taught me to enjoy life.”

Wade Phillips, the Texans’ defensive coordinator, went to Goliad after practice Friday.

“I’m so glad I got to see him,” Phillips said. “Dad was such a humble man. I think he’d want to be remembered as someone who treated people well.”

The Phillips family is asking for a few days of privacy. Rather than send flowers, they ask for donations to bumphillipscharities.com so they can finish the home for deaf children that Bum wanted to build before he died.

Phillips will be buried in a private ceremony on his ranch, for family members only. Soon, there will be a memorial service in Houston to celebrate Phillips’ life. It’ll include former Oilers players and coaches as well as many former players and coaches from around the NFL.

“He was a legend, and the legend will live on,” Wade said.

Wade Phillips was a young assistant coach for his father during the Luv Ya Blue era with the Oilers. They were fired in what became known as the New Year’s Eve Massacre in 1980 after a playoff loss at Oakland.

“You know, Dad enlightened everybody around him,” Wade said. “He had this special knack for making people feel good about themselves.”

Wade will travel with the team to Kansas City for Sunday’s game against the undefeated Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium. That’s the way his father would have wanted it.

NFL Network just aired a montage of his coaching career and clips of his "Bum-isms", I couldn't help but smile. I'm listening to 610 right now and they suggested that a statue of him should be built outside of Reliant stadium.. and I agree. Cowboy hat and all.
I hear you. I never watched him coach but he was the kind of man that displayed class, honesty, decency and work ethic that makes me feel proud that he was so linked to Houston.

Donate to https://www.bumphillipscharities.com/ if you want to do something, Bum wanted to build a home for deaf children before he passed.

I tossed a few $$ for Bum as thanks for all the years of being a great person.
