Wade Phillips said he would be open to staying with the Texans as defensive coordinator. That's not happenening.
Phillips said goodbye to Houston on Saturday after he presumably met with new head coach Bill O'Brien. O'Brien is seemingly cleaning house.
Phillips was the Texans' defensive coordinator for three seasons. This past season, he became the Texans' interim coach after Gary Kubiak was fired with three games remaining in the season.
The 66-year-old played collegiately at the University of Houston and was a coach on the Oilers' staff from 1976-1980 under his father. Phillips' father, Bum, died in October but Wade Phillips' coaching in Houston allowed him to spend time with his father in Goliad during his final years.
Thanks to McNair family and great Texan fans and most all our players. It was wonderful being home. I wish the best to all— Wade Phillips (@sonofbum) January 4, 2014
