Wade Phillips bids farewell to Texans

January, 4, 2014
HOUSTON -- The last Houston Texans coaching staff had a decidedly Houston feel to it with a hometown kid as the head coach and a lifelong Texan as its defensive coordinator.

Today defensive coordinator Wade Phillips said goodbye after meeting with new Texans head coach Bill O'Brien.

"Thanks to McNair family and great Texan fans and most all our players. It was wonderful being home. I wish the best to all"

He had a long history in this city. He went to the University of Houston and coached on the Houston Oilers staff for his father, Bum Phillips, from 1976 to 1980.
