Phillips: “I’m not looking to go anywhere”

Posted by Nick Scurfield on January 5, 2012 – 4:27 pm

Wade Phillips has done such a great job in his first season as Texans defensive coordinator, it’s only natural to wonder if he’ll be a head-coaching candidate for another team.

There was media speculation on that very subject after the Texans clinched the AFC South with their victory at Cincinnati in Week 14. On Thursday, a year to the day after he was hired by Houston, Phillips was asked about his desire to be a head coach again and if he thinks he’ll be given the chance.

“I guess people may have taken it the wrong way that I ought to be a head coach,” Phillips said. “I don’t believe that. I think I should be considered. If you look at my record, and you can look at all the people they’re talking about now, my record is better than most everyone they’re talking about – as a head coach, I’m talking about. If you want a winner, if you want experience, you know, I’d like to talk about it.

“But this is the best job I’ve had. It couldn’t be a better job than this right now, and if we keep going the way I think we’re going to go – and we’re going to be good for a long time, especially defensively, I think – so, you know, I’m not looking to go anywhere. I enjoyed being a head coach, I enjoyed the winning, and we’re winning here, so that’s important, too, but I think I could help anybody.”

Phillips took the Texans’ defense from 30th in 2010 to second in 2011, with a 91.2-yard per game improvement that was third-best in modern NFL history. He  has an 83-66 (.557) record as a head coach, with stints in Dallas (2007-10), Atlanta (2003), Buffalo (1998-2000), Denver (1993-94) and New Orleans (1985).

He also has deep ties to the city of Houston, having started his NFL career as the defensive line coach of the Houston Oilers under his father, Bum Phillips, in 1976. He played and coached at the University of Houston and was born in Orange, Texas.

“I interviewed here when they first had the team (in 2002),” Phillips said. “I was part of the Oilers when they left. So, Houston, it wasn’t a Houston (or) Tennessee (thing), it was just Houston, and once Houston got back and they came back, that was something special to me. That’s where I’m from. That’s where I believe in. That’s where I started my career is in Houston, so I hoped the best for them no matter who they took as the coaches. To see them get to where we are now is great, but we’re not satisfied… We’re not looking to just be in the playoffs, we’re looking to win.”
