The Cowboys are executing the 2010 option on coach Wade Phillips‘ contract, binding him to the team for next season, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.
Phillips met with Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and top brass on Monday, and more talks are scheduled for Tuesday. The team hasn’t moved to extend Phillips’ contract beyond 2010, but Jones is comfortable with him as the coach for next season.
The Cowboys finished strong this season to win the NFC East, and they also ended a long playoff victory drought. However, they were drubbed 34-3 by the Vikings in the divisional round Sunday.
