SAN ANTONIO -- Wade Phillips lost about 40 pounds and added a title this offseason.
He's now Grandpa.
Ivy Jo Phillips was born July 16, giving Grandpa and new father/offensive quality control coach Wes Phillips a full week to focus on her before beginning the grind of training camp.
Wade's eyes light up when he talks about his first grandchild. He's somewhat sheepish when he discusses his weight loss, the result of a changed diet and exercise program.
"When you're young and lose weight, they say you look great," said Phillips, who kiddingly wondered when Nutrisystem would give him an endorsement deal. "When you're old and lose weight, they ask 'Are you sick?'"
