Happens to a lot of coaches on playoff teams. You can't dictate when you interview. If he waits until his team is out of the playoffs then he may lose out on getting a job.

Pats offensive coordinator has already been named the coach at Penn State. Packers offensive coordinator has an interview with the Dolphins I think.

According to ESPN's Chris Mortensen, the Bucs are looking at Brad Childress, Marty Schotteheimer, Wade Phillips (Houston DC) and Mike Zimmer (Bengals DC). They've also been connected to Mike Sherman and Jerry Gray.

Yikes, it's between Sherman and Wade.

First, they break Schaub's foot. Now, they're trying to steal Wade?

The Bucs suck!

That happened during the bye week, right? I think there are some timing restrictions on interviews. Need to do some research.

If that represents the entire field of prospective coaches, Wade should get the job easily.
In spite of the recent happenings at A&M, I disagree about Sherman. Folks forget that he won the NFC North three times in his six years as HC of the Packers (with a minimum of 10 wins each time), and went to the playoffs one other time with a 12 win Wild Card team.

For his career, he's 18 games over .500 in the regular season (57-39), and the only time (out of six years) that he finished without a winning record was his final year when he went 4-12. Not coincidentally, that was the year Favre threw 29 int's, and with the exception of his final year in Minny, had the lowest passer rating of his career.
Sherman also won a couple of playoff games while he was there, but obviously, since he got to the playoffs four times, and never won the Super Bowl, he lost 4.

I think it's actually surprising that he hasn't gotten more interest given all the retreads, has beens and never-weres that get NFL head coaching jobs. I do think there's a pretty good chance he ends up as HC in either Jacksonville or TB next season.

Pretty sure Kubiak interviewed with us in the middle of a Denver playoff run. Can't deny Wade the opportunity. Timing sucks though for sure. Buzz off Tampa.

Default Re: Wade Phillips: "I'm not looking to go anywhere"

If Wade leaves after being here just one year, then he can pack his **** for good and never bother coming back to Texas ever again.

It would be a true slap to the face of his father, Bob McNair, his players, to the city of Houston, and to the fans.

I know it's his life and he can choose for himself. Duh. But with choices come ramifications, and he'd be just another opportunist who looks after himself and doesn't care about the fallout it causes others. IMO, he has to stay one more year here to leave on good terms in THIS fan's eyes.

I'm sure his agent is whispering into his ear that the turnaround of this defense from worst to first is something you capitalize off of and go get that bigger contract. We'll see if Wade has true roots here or if he's a male whore and sleeps with the biggest spender. Sorry if that's harsh, but it is what it is in my eyes.

It'll be put up or shut up time for all this Wade Phillips "head coach" speculation

Default Re: Wade to interview for TB job

As much as I respect Wade, there is no way he gets this job. They don't have anyone on their D-line that fits the 3-4. And no one that can easily transition to a 3-4 OLB. It would just take too much for Wade to get that team back to winning. Plus they just picked up fatboy from Washington who hated the defense, and do you really want to start off the season creating that kind of drama on the team? Miami makes more sense to me than Tampa does. Neither will happen, but Tampa won't happen for sure.

Default Re: Wade to interview for TB job

Now that this is adversely affecting MY team.....the NFL needs to make it a rule that no candidates can interview with an NFL team until after the Super Bowl.

They can wait the extra four weeks or so.

Make it a level playing field and make playoff coaches respect their current duties and not have them thinking about where they might end up next year.

The Bucs are quickly becoming my most hated team. First, they go and get the Schaub Killer (Haynesworth) who ends his season and maybe even his career. Second, they are targeting our d-coord. Bastards.

I'm not at all surprised by this. The defensive performance this year has turned a lot of heads, Phillips has the pedigree and the stated desire to be a head coach again. For the life of me, I don't understand why. He absolutely has it made here as DC. Maybe he should give Dick LeBeau a call.

Default Re: Wade Phillips: "I'm not looking to go anywhere"

A real man would have said, "Any team trying to contact me, or wants me for their head coach...they can wait until I'm done here. I have a job to do, I have a duty to my players and everyone else in the Texans organization. If some team wants me bad enough, they can wait. Next question, please."

How hard is THAT? Instead, he talks out of both sides of his mouth.

It's just really depressing, as a fan, to sit back and read all this crap that he's saying. The rumors. Speculation. Hey Wade: WE gave you a chance when you got dumped on your ass by Jerry Jones. Now you just use us as a stepping stone in year ONE here?

If he leaves, let the name of Phillips be stricken from the annals of Texas sports lore. Bum, too. He can follow his son and lead the Bucs out of the tunnel for their first game with Wade as HC if it goes down like that.

Sour taste in my mouth today. It should be 100% Texans Talk, and we're getting trickled reports of Wade supposedly a candidate in Tampa AND possibly interviewing too. Sheesh.
