I hope the media keeps pushing this issue too. If ESPN ignores him as a head coaching candidate then it will be better for us. If they promote him as a guy that needs another shot, then we could be screwed.

I hate to say it, but I could not blame Wade if he accepted a head coaching offer.

He seems content to be a DC in Houston, but what else is he going to say?

Id be very surprised if Wade got and/or took another HC job. Look how long it took him before he got the Cowboy job, and that, arguably, was his worst performance as a head coach.

The man can coach defense though!

At this point, I hope that Wade just wants to set up a Dynasty right here. As a DC.

We've got a damn near perfect setup with a dual HC situation.

Plus Wade gets paid very well, and he is getting the credit he deserves. Its not like all his hard work and talent is going unnoticed. I would have to think he is pretty happy here at the moment.

Default Re: Wade head coach 2012?

Given the family and personal ties to Houston, and the face to face lobbying that Bum did before he got the job, I think there's a decent possibility Wade would stay around for longer than a year just because he would view it as the right thing to do - even if he has other opportunities.

I wouldn't say this about very many NFL coaches, but I'll say it about Wade.

Thanks for helping my cause. It is a plan. Do we have one? Are there other defensive candidates who could come in and take over the reins if we lost Wade? Just thinking.

Sure you are not the President of the University of Houston talking about Coach Sumlin? Meanwhile A&M is not allowing ink to dry on a contract offer.

Default Re: Wade head coach 2012?

Meh, Wade wasn't even as bad of a head coach as he was blamed for being after seeing what is going on with the Cowboys this season. Just a bunch of players who aren't up to the challenge of winning (besides a few) and a bunch of coaches who don't really know what their doing and then add an owner who thinks he knows more about football than he actually does into the mix and you get the Cowboys.

But still I don't think Wade wants to be a head coach here and if Kubiak ends up getting fired I hope we realize this is a good setup we have and just give Wade the HC job to run the defense while we bring in an offensive minded coordinator to run the Offense. But.. don't know many people better than Kubiak (especially after seeing how well TJ is progressing) are on the market for that kind of job.

Anyways

In summary, bad thread.

Texans Assistant Wade Phillips Doesn't Expect To Be A Head Coach Again

01-10-2011 , 09:49 PM

Quote:
Wade Phillips doesn't expect to be a head coach again, and that's fine. He's happy to finally be working close to where he grew up. Phillips reported to work Monday for his first day as the Houston Texans' defensive coordinator, meeting with coach Gary Kubiak to talk about staff vacancies. Phillips was hired last week, two days after Kubiak fired defensive coordinator Frank Bush, secondary coach David Gibbs, linebackers coach Johnny Holland and assistant linebackers coach Robert Saleh. Phillips, 63, was fired as the head coach in Dallas after the Cowboys started 1-7 and his career record is 83-64, but Phillips isn't anticipating any more head-coaching offers coming his way. "It's perception, sometimes, more than reality," Phillips said. "I've won a lot of games in this league and I have a really high winning percentage. I don't see me being a head coach again, because of the perception overall. "When you get fired, it's usually, 'Hey, he was fired because he can't win,'" Phillips said. "It wasn't 'cause I couldn't win. I couldn't win enough."

Wade is 64, or thereabouts. I would think (read hope) that might be a detriment to his being hired elsewhere as a head coach.

Come on, no one thinks it's a possibility let alone a probability? We see it going on right now on a local college level.
The short answer is "no".

Hou-Tex and CnnnD provided quotes from Buddha Wade's own mouth. That's good enough for me.

I just hope if we make it to the Super Bowl, he doesn't pull a Cowher and hang 'em up shortly thereafter. With him being 64, going on 65, I would think that's the more likely scenario - him riding off into the sunset with an AFC crown or (dare I say) a Super Bowl ring to his credit. But even so, I think he'd let Uncle Bob know what he was thinking in plenty of time for us to hunt up his successor.


...and what does cake have to do with flatulence?
