Cowboys will keep Phillips
IRVING, Texas ó The Dallas Cowboys aren’t changing coaches.
Instead, coach Wade Phillips plans to change.
After seeing Super Bowl hopes fizzle into a 9-7 season that wasn’t good enough to make the playoffs, team owner Jerry Jones has vowed to bring back Phillips, who vowed Monday to do things differently.
“We know things must improve. The only way is to change things,” Phillips said.
Phillips said he and Jones already “talked man to man” about what went wrong and what needs to be done.
The big change Phillips seems to be talking about is getting tough. That would be quite a change for a man whose reputation as a players’ coach has been forged over 32 seasons.
“If it means being more demanding, more whatever, I have to get it done,” Phillips said.
