Report: Jerry Jones will act quickly with Wade Phillips
Jerry Jones says it won’t take long for him to make a determination on the status of his coach Wade Phillips.
After the Dallas Cowboys’ season is over.
So you can bet right there that if Dallas loses at home to Philadelphia on Sunday that Phillips’ last day on the job will be, say, Monday.
The owner tried not to discuss the issue but wound up doing just that with Todd Archer of the Dallas Morning News.
“It's not something I wanted to talk about here a month ago when the issue was more about, well, changing, that was kind of the tenor where the energy was," Jones told Archer. "I didn't want to talk about it then and I don't want to talk about it now. What I have said is to give you insight into the thinking that's going on, but as I've mentioned and it's not being trite, but it's not as though you had technical work to do here. Something is in place."
Phillips has a 33-15 record but the Cowboys have yet to win a playoff game under him. Jones holds a club option for a fourth year with Phillips. There’s a fair chance that if Jones elects to bring Phillips back that he may have the coach an extension. Jones has publicly backed the coach all season, but with Phillips’ future still undetermined, it’s very clear a decision has not yet been made.
