Cowboys fire Wade Phillips; Garrett to coach the remainder of 2010

The axe has fallen on Wade Phillips, as just a few weeks after owner Jerry Jones said his head coach wasn’t going anywhere, they fired the coach today.

Jason Garrett, who was a hot coaching prospect the past few seasons, is going to take over for the remaining 8 games of 2010.

This move was expected by many as multiple reports surfaced following the game that Phillips was unlikely to make it through the week. Phillips’ certainly deserved this fate after the Cowboys started the season 1-7.

The team was crushed by the Packers on Sunday night in Green Bay 45-7.

Phillips ends his Cowboys career with a 34-22 in the regular season record as head coach. This is by far his most disappointing season as he won 13, 9 and 11 games in his first three seasons. He also walks away from Dallas with a 1-2 playoff record with the Cowboys.
