At least a former Cowboy Head Coach has a job, now only the Dallas Cowboys sit and wait. Today, the Houston Texans have hired Wade Phillips as their defensive coordinator, according to several online media sources.
Phillips, 63, spent much of the day at Reliant Stadium interviewing with coach Gary Kubiak and meeting with others in the organization, including owner Bob McNair and general manager Rick Smith.
Phillips will be Kubiak's third defensive coordinator in six years, following Richard Smith and Frank Bush, both of whom were fired.
The Texans spoke to Marvin Lewis about the job before he agreed to a new deal to remain as head coach of the Cincinnati Bengals.
