Wade Phillips has a new job, and he won’t even have to move out of state for it.

KTRK-TV in Houston
is reporting that the former Cowboys head coach is the new Texans defensive coordinator under Gary Kubiak.

In case you didn’t realize, Phillips’ father, legendary coach Bum Phillips, coached the old Houston Oilers franchise from 1975-80, so on a few different levels, this is a homecoming for Wade Phillips (he also played at the University of Houston).

UPDATED (6:07 p.m.):
According to the Houston Chronicle's John McClain, Phillips denies he's taken the job. Mostly, because he hasn't even interviewed for it yet.

he needs to teach more on fundmentails and blocking tech neeks or hire a good asstants that teach on dide lines and stop using the pervent that he has lost every super bowl he has coached because if this and up date his deffences look at the dominat deffences like packer , patorits, steelers , deffences backs need to have a good teacher on how to deffend with tight coverage taught how to get angles and hints on when to turn for the ball like eyes head turn or reacing , then bat the ball down or int it same with lineman and middle line backers  how to strip the ball out  every time in practice and training camp. and have big strong big guys on line and covering the gaps all of them never happened in dallas after first year !

This a good hire. He wants to be here and he is a damn good dc. Plus he is Bum Philips son, and as an old Houston sports fan that is cool with me. I hope Schaub isn't around forever.

1st, they say that Kubiak's job is safe.  Which is absurd!  Then they hire Wade Phillips to save that awful defense?  I really hope it works out for the Texans b/c they have entirely too much talent to be 6-10.  This seriously was their season to win the division and they blew it.  Their offensive firepower can play with the best in the league - but, defensively they need some help.  I am not sure Wade Phillips is the answer to that defense.  The Cowboys had a good bit of talent on Defense, and still couldn't stop anyone.  Do we think he will turn it around for the Texans?  I hope for the Texans he does - b/c Schaub, Johnson, and Foster won't be around forever.
