Wade Phillips is 32-15 in his third season as Cowboys coach, yet he continually faces questions about his job status. That has brought some speculation that Phillips has a bad relationship with team owner Jerry Jones, but the coach told NFL Network’s Michael Irvin that it isn’t so.
“It’s a great situation in that a lot of places, you have to go through the general manager to get to the owner,” Phillips said. “Right here, you go straight to the general manager, the owner, the whole thing, so if you think something ought to be done a certain way or you ought to get a certain player, those kind of things, there’s no middle man. And if you have a reason for doing things, you know, he’ll listen. He makes the final decision on things, but I think he’s a good listener, too.”
