Wade Phillips explained why he has no ill will towards the Cowboys

It would be reasonable for Los Angeles Rams defensive coordinator Wade Phillips to be angry with the Dallas Cowboys.

Not only was he fired as their coach midway through the 2010 season, but it always appeared that they were just waiting for the right time to name then offensive coordinator Jason Garrett as their coach. Phillips has no ill will towards the Cowboys, and his reason makes a lot of sense.

“Half the teams in the league, it didn’t end well for me,” Phillips said, via the Los Angeles Times’ Gary Klein. “If I had a vendetta against … any team that fired me, I’d have a quarter of the league. … Those things happen.

“Part of coaching is getting fired.”

That sounds like a person who has been coaching in the NFL for a long time. Those who go into the profession of coaching in that league understand that some situations are not going to end well.

Phillips has had a great run in the NFL. He coached the Cowboys for three and a half seasons, and won a Super Bowl as the Denver Broncos defensive coordinator. He surely realizes that his career is probably envied by many in his profession.
