      Norv and Mike are both staying with San Francisco - no HC job they are not leaving and i doubt SF would allow the Cowboys to talk to them about assistant jobs.
      Boiler Up!

      Make it three yards mother****er and we'll have an automobile race

      Philips the right fit for Dallas...
      Feb. 9, 2007) -- Dallas Cowboys fans and the world over were breathlessly anticipating the hiring of a "big name" as their new head coach. They might not have been excited about hearing that the new coach is "regular guy" Wade Phillips -- but they can rest assured that Jerry Jones has made a very good decision.
      For anyone who thinks it wasn't a "sexy" pick, just go back to when the Packers hired a guy named Vince Lombardi in 1959. A lot of people in Green Bay were disappointed with that hire, and it turned out pretty good.
      NFL Network video

      Scott Hanson reports on the recent hiring of Cowboys head coach Wade Phillips.
      Video: 56k | 300k

      Phillips is the third native Texan to be named head coach of the Dallas Cowboys. He grew up in Texas, played high school and college football in Texas and started his coaching career at a high school in Orange, Texas, which happens to be the state's eastern-most city.
      In describing Wade Phillips, I would say he is a mellow, laid-back individual who is not a yeller or screamer. He reminds me of Tom Landry in this regard: He will make a point and say, "Do it that way and you will be successful. But if you don't, you're not going to be successful."
      As an example, I remember when he was coaching with his dad, the legendary Bum Phillips, at Oklahoma State. His dad asked him why some breakdowns were happening on defense and Wade's answer was simple: The players didn't follow the plan.
      Bum Phillips is still a cult hero in Texas. He coached high school and college there, and then had success in the NFL --- particularly with the Houston Oilers. At most of Bum's coaching stops, Wade has been by his side. At Oklahoma State, as a matter of fact, Bum was the defensive coordinator and Wade was the defensive line coach. And then in the NFL, Wade was on his dad's staff with both the Oilers and the New Orleans Saints.

      Dallas owner Jerry Jones is confident Texas native Wade Phillips will bring success to the franchise.
      And speaking of keeping it in the family, there's a good probability that Wes Phillips -- Wade's son -- will join the staff in Dallas. Wes Phillips played quarterback at UTEP and has been coaching in the college ranks in Texas.
      To this day, I am still not certain why Wade Phillips was not retained in Buffalo. I guess it came down to the Music City Miracle, when the Bills went 11-5 and lost in the playoffs on the Titans' kickoff return touchdown with seconds left in the game. Phillips was replaced the following year.
      Wade Phillips is a person with no airs about him. He and his dad both are walking advertisements for cowboy boots -- whether in Hawaii for league meetings or on the sidelines. Wade has gotten away from wearing boots on sidelines, like his dad used to do, but that's about the only place he's not wearing them.
      With Wade Phillips at the helm, I think you'll see a family atmosphere with a lighter feel around the Cowboys, and I think that will lead to success.

      Rough start, 1/2 w/ an interception. Then he settled down and did great! I was glad to see him passing well, and making some plays. [IMG]http://*****************.com/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
      "Went from being boo'ed to possibly the NFC player of the game"
      T. Romo 11/19 156yards 1TD 1INT
      More yards than any other NFC QB
      I found it funny, how just about every other player on the NFC team was a Dallas Cowboy With a few of the bears backing out due to injuries, Dallas got to send an additional 3 [IMG]http://*****************.com/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      No, he wasn't actually boo'ed... It was how one of the commentators put it... I assumed you were watching it He didn't look good though in the first drive, then he settled down.

      ING, Texas - Cowboys head coach Wade Phillips said putting together his coaching staff would be his top priority, and so far, he's not wasting any time.
      After making two hires on Tuesday, Phillips added two more assistants on Wednesday: Veteran coach Ray Sherman and John Garrett, the brother of Jason Garrett.
      Sherman, who spent the last two years as the Tennessee Titans' wide receivers coach, will coach the receivers in Dallas.
      Garrett, the Cowboys' new tight ends coach, coached at the University of Virginia the last two years but has been on NFL staffs in Cincinnati and Arizona.
      The Cowboys also interviewed Wisconsin offensive coordinator Paul Chryst.
      The Cowboys become the ninth pro team for Sherman, who has 19 years of NFL coaching experience. Sherman has coached wide receivers, running backs and has also served as an offensive coordinator during his coaching career.
      Sherman has coached in Green Bay, Minnesota, Pittsburgh, New York Jets, San Francisco, Atlanta and Houston since 1988. His experience could be helpful for Jason Garrett, who is expected to have a major role in the offense.
      While Garrett's official title has not been named, it's expected he will serve in an offensive coordinator's capacity, likely even calling plays. But with Sherman, Garrett will have another experienced coach on board along with Tony Sparano.
      Sherman's hiring comes a day after the Cowboys added Dat Nguyen to the staff as an assistant linebackers and defensive quality control coach. The club also hired Wade Phillips' son, Wesley, as an offensive quality control coach.
      Jerry's Big Night
      Cowboys owner Jerry Jones will be one of eight new inductees Thursday night for the Texas Sports Hall of Fame.
      Jones, along with former Cowboys running back Don Perkins, will be honored at a special banquet in Waco, Texas.
      And even for someone who grew up and played college football in Arkansas, Jones said being honored as a Texas legend is quite an achievement.
      "For me, it's humbling because when I look at who all is in the Hall of Fame, it reminds me of what a great sports area that we're in, in Texas," said Jones, who played three seasons for the University of Arkansas in the now defunct Southwest Conference. "I get to thinking about the times I got to play where I went to schools; all of our teams were Texas teams where we played in the Southwest Conference. A huge percent of my teammates were from Texas, played high school football in Texas."
      Of course, Jones knows his achievements with the Dallas Cowboys - he's owned the team since 1989 and led the franchise to three Super Bowl titles in a four-year span from 1992-95 - is the major reason he will be inducted Thursday night.
      "I'm going in because of my experience with the Cowboys - I know that," Jones said. "Having said that, this thing is, for me, oriented about Texas and the Cowboys, as opposed to the NFL. I think the Cowboys are and all of football is unique simply because of what Texas is."
      Along with Jones and Perkins, the other six inductees are Warren Moon, Billy Sims, DeLoss Dodds, Cynthia Cooper, Roosevelt Leaks and Rafer Johnson.
      Centering Talks
      The Cowboys have been in ongoing discussions with center Andre Gurode and his agent in regard to a new contract.
      Gurode, an unrestricted free agent for the second consecutive year, is looking for much more than the one-year deal he signed last March. Gurode started all 16 games at center this past season and was added to the Pro Bowl as an injury replacement. Gurode was one of seven Cowboys who played in last Saturday's game in Hawaii.
      The Cowboys and Gurode's camp had been talking extensively even before Bill Parcells' announced his retirement and the coaching search began.
      With Wade Phillips now in the fold, look for the Cowboys and Gurode to work out a new deal, likely before March 2, the first day of the free-agent signing period.
      The Cowboys apparently are not far along in contract talks with right tackle Marc Colombo or even quarterback Tony Romo, who has one year remaining on the extension he signed last August.
      Europe Bound
      The Cowboys are sending three players to NFL Europe, including tight end Tony Curtis, who has spent the majority of the last two seasons on the practice squad.
      Curtis, an undrafted tight end from Portland State, was on the active roster for seven weeks last year, playing in three games, before finishing the season on the practice squad.
      The Cowboys are also allocating defensive tackle Remi Ayodele and linebacker John Saldi, who went to training camp with the team last summer before getting cut in August.
      Saldi re-signed after the season, as did Ayodele, the younger brother of Cowboys linebacker Akin Ayodele. Remi Ayodele spent three weeks in Dallas on the practice squad in November, and has been with the Ravens and Patriots as well.

      Garrett Named Coordinator; Sparano Gets Extension
      As expected, Jason Garrett has been named offensive coordinator, while Tony Sparano will be the assistant head coach and got a two-year contract extension.

      Cowboys Hire Bruce Read As New Special Teams Coach

      Read coached special teams on two NFL staffs before coming to Dallas.
      IRVING, Texas - Cowboys head coach Wade Phillips is scheduled to leave for the NFL scouting combine in Indianapolis on Thursday, but he's getting closer to completing his staff.
      Phillips on Thursday hired former Oregon State assistant head coach Bruce Read as the Cowboys' new special teams coach. Read replaces Bruce DeHaven, who was hired to Mike Holmgren's staff in Seattle last month after his contract expired in Dallas.
      Read, 44, served as Oregon State's special teams coach from 1997-98 and again from 2004-06. He also has worked on two NFL staffs as special teams coach, first for the Chargers (1999-01) and then the Giants (2002-03) while Cowboys newly-named offensive coordinator Jason Garrett was a backup quarterback in New York.
      Phillips has now hired six coaches since taking over for Bill Parcells on Feb. 6: Read (special teams), Wes Phillips (offensive assistant/quality control), Dat Nguyen (assistant linebackers/quality control), Ray Sherman (wide receivers), John Garrett (tight ends) and Skip Peete (running backs). The Cowboys hired Garrett to a previously undetermined role during their head coaching search.
      Phillips officially named Garrett offensive coordinator and Tony Sparano assistant head coach on Tuesday. Sparano received a contract extension through 2009 and will continue to oversee the Cowboys' offensive line.
      The Cowboys interviewed Bears quarterbacks coach Wade Wilson for the same position on Wednesday. Wilson coached the Cowboys' quarterbacks from 2000-02 and has spent the last three years in Chicago working with the likes of Rex Grossman, Kyle Orton and even Chad Hutchinson again. He also was a backup quarterback in Dallas from 1995-97, winning a Super Bowl ring with Garrett on the Cowboys' 1995 team.
      Phillips also has yet to name a defensive coordinator. Todd Bowles, who coached the Cowboys' secondary last season, has been considered a candidate to replace Mike Zimmer. But Phillips has made it clear that he will run the defense.
      Read will direct a Cowboys special teams unit that finished second in kickoff coverage, allowing 19.6 yards per return. The Cowboys ranked 24th in punt coverage (10.8) but also had the league's top punter. Mat McBriar earned his first Pro Bowl selection with a league-leading 48.2-yard gross average, becoming the first NFL punter since 1963 to finish with an average of more than 48.0.
      The Cowboys also produced a pair of top kickoff returners. Rookie Miles Austin replaced Tyson Thompson (fractured fibula) at mid-season and finished tied with Thompson for second in the NFC with a 26.0-yard return average behind Chicago's special teams dynamo Devin Hester.
