    Things could change anytime, of course. But as of 10 minutes ago, the Cowboys had not fired HC Wade Phillips.

    No way that Jason Garrett becomes the head coach of the Cowboys now...not after the miserable state of their offence!

    I reckon Garrett may be given a shot as a care-taker manager till the end of the season and then they will make a play for Norv at the end of the season.

    IRVING (CBSDFW.COM) – CBS 11 Sports has confirmed that Dallas Cowboys head coach Wade Phillips has been fired.

    Jason Garrett has been named the new interim head coach. Garrett had previously been the Cowboys assistant head coach and offensive coordinator.

    The Cowboys are off to their worst start since 1989, with a 1-7 record. That record includes five straight losses.

    This is the first time, in Dallas Cowboys history, that a head coach has been fired mid-season.

    The Dallas Cowboys are scheduled to hold a press conference at 4:00 p.m.

    CBS 11 Sports is covering the story and will have more details as they become available.

    Re-tread. That's all he was (oh and an OK DC). The NFL needs some fresh blood. Happy retirement little 'bum'.

    Now a Dallas coach is texting that if Wade Phillips has been fired, he and other assistants don't know it yet.

    Garret should be gone too, don't know why there was hype around him as the next big thing in young coaches a few years ago. He sucked as a player, and will most likely suck as a coach.

    The real problem with that team is Jerry Jones. He believes that Tony Romo is the answer.

    I think he's just the interim guy. He'll probably be gone too unless there is a big turnaround the remainder of the season.

    I agree with the first part of your post, but Jerry's also impatient.

    I bet he takes Ryan Mallett if he's in the draft.

    I betcha Cowboys will contact the Chargers RE Norv! JJ would be willing to buy out the rest of his contract I reckon.

    If the Chargers go one-and-done in the playoffs, maybe Norv will get shipped to Dallas and we can re-hire Wade as Defensive Coordinator to replace Rivera who would get promoted to Head Coach.

    Close, except Norv isn't going anywhere. But Wade taking over for Rivera when he leaves is a very distinct possibility.

    I wonder if Wade would be interested in a Special Teams coaching job?

    Hmm Rivera HC Wade DC Norv.. OC or next best bet. Sounds like a rerun... I think Wade will have another DC job before the job opens up in time in SD. Even if he wanted to wait the offers he could get wont hold him up for long. Also not that we REALLY need him back.
