For weeks, Wade Phillips’s perplexed countenance seemed to sum up the Dallas Cowboys’ season gone awry: nobody could quite figure out how things had gone so wrong for a team that began the season talking about hosting a Super Bowl in its home stadium, and nobody — especially Phillips, it seemed — knew how to stop the Cowboys’ slide from America’s Team to N.F.L.’s doormat.

On Monday, the Cowboys’ owner, Jerry Jones, who despite a reputation for impetuous football decisions had never fired a coach in midseason, brought Phillips’s tenure to a conclusion. Just days after saying Phillips would remain as the head coach throughout the season, Jones fired Phillips in a meeting hours after the Cowboys were humiliated by the Green Bay Packers on national television, 45-7, to fall to 1-7. He will be replaced for the rest of the season by the team’s offensive coordinator, Jason Garrett.


Phillips’s ouster ended the N.F.L.’s long and often excruciating coaching watch. Phillips, who is soft-spoken and relaxed by coaching standards and well liked by players, had looked beleaguered intermittently during his three-plus years as the head coach. His laid-back style worked well in the beginning because it was a contrast from Bill Parcells’s more gruff demeanor, but eventually Phillips’s inability — or disinclination — to keep his players in check cost him his job.

Gonna be interesting to see how Jason Garrett does as the interim coach. I think he has a bright future as an NFL head coach

As a Cowboys fan I'm glad about this firing the dude showed no intensity whatsoever... As far as Garret goes he has nothing to lose

Doesn't matter, the Cowboys will still suck.
