If Jerry Jones is going to fire Wade Phillips, it will happen after this season. The Cowboys owner said Friday on KRLD-FM that Phillips will coach the team for the rest of this season.

After the loss to the Jaguars Sunday, Jones did not give his head coach a vote of confidence. "I'm trying to evaluate what our best chance is, not only for our team but to leave the taste in our mouths that the fans deserve," Jones said. "I'm trying to evaluate that.
"There's a lot of things you can do that would go in the category of feel-goods, although they would kill me relative to changes. It would be hard, hard for me to do."

Firing Phillips is somewhat complicated because a.) it would be an admission that the season is lost and b.) Phillips serves as the defensive coordinator, so there would be two major vacancies to fill. But as Sports Illustrated's Peter King pointed out earlier in the week, defensive line coach Paul Pasqualoni is well-versed in the 3-4 scheme and could handle the D for the second half of the season; special teams coordinator DeCamillis could be the head coach.

But obviously it’s a moot point now; the 1-6 Cowboys will rally around their lame duck head coach.

My thoughts exactly... and to think the Cowboys were favored to be in the SB, playing in Dallas.  I can't get enough of Wade Philips!  I wish they'd make him Coach of the Year.

Agree with all the all the posts. Lifetime Cowboys and so frustrating to see this team play week in and out. When you have six penalties in one quarter alone, you are not disciplined or well coached. Would love to see Cowher or Gruden - both of those guys know how to coach and demand the most out of their players. Unfortunately, the Cowboys are done for the year - only salvation is maybe  we get a high draft pick to fill offensive line or defensive backfield holes.

Jones is smart enough to know that a mid-season change won't do a thing. Next coach: Gruden, maybe. Cohwer, probably not. his wife just recently past away; he'll want to stay freed up for his remaining family. My beat is it will be the next flavor of the month (top coordinator).

I have been a Cowboys fan for as long as I can remember. I knew way back when Jimmie left and Jerry hired Barry (I'm a KU fan so I've never liked Barry anyway!) that it was the beginning of the end. I've sat through horrible coaching hires & draft picks. The comparison to Al Davis is one I've been making for some time now. In my opinion, the Cowboys won't make a SB until Jerry is "gone" & his sons take over. Although my hope is that right now Jerry has been communicating with a Gruden or Cowher and that person has said that they don't want to take over midseason and want to start fresh in the offseason. A coach like them can see from a mile away what kind of talent is on the field AND, if it is one of those guys, they are in the media, have access and inside contacts to evaluate the team from afar. They don't need to come in midseason to put together a team because the team is already in place. The only holes, talentwise, is in the O-line and secondary. This team needs a good old fashioned a** whipping! One last thing, Roy Williams is an idiot & is one of the worst veteran signings Jerry has ever made!

John Fox is out after this year at Carolina. He would be a good candidate for defensive coordinator at the Cowboys. And Jason Garrett could get his shot at head coach with the Panthers, who need an offensive minded guy at the top.

I hope Phillips never gets fired. I'm enjoying the Cowboys at 1-6.
