Houston — Whatever happens over the next three weeks, 66-year-old Wade Phillips doesn’t sound like a man who’s ready to ride off into the sunset if the Texans don’t keep him.
“I can go into all of the stats and all of that stuff. Nobody wants to hear those,” he said. “But if you look at the record, I think I have a lot to offer as a head coach. That’s for somebody else to decide.”
He added, however, that he’s got too much on his plate at present to worry about his long-term prospects, here or anywhere else.
“I’m in the middle of it right here,” he said. “I’m up to my rear in alligators. I’m going to do the very best job I can do at what I’m doing. That’s what I’ve always tried to do. This is a situation, I have been a head coach before and an interim head coach before. So I’m familiar with the situation.
