Wade Phillips is in the building

Coach Wade Phillips is at the Cowboys facility on Monday, although no one is quite sure whether he’ll finish the day as Cowboys coach just yet.

Calvin Watkins of ESPNDallas.com reports Phillips hasn’t spoken to all of his coaches as of midday, and owner Jerry Jones still plans to meet with the coaching staff.  Phillips usually meets with the media in the late afternoon.

Wadewatch 2010 reached such frenzied levels on Monday that folks noticed Phillips’ car was missing from its usual spot.  It turns out Phillips’ wife dropped him off at work.  (We’ll be update you when she drops off the laundry.)

    Hi Wade. Here’s your Pink Slip. There’s the door…Don’t let it hit you in your fat ass on the way out.

    Maybe he is hung over from all the partying on JJs plane last nite… TEQUILLA

  3. jcurran77 says: Nov 8, 2010 2:25 PM

    Thanks genius, ESPN reported that about two hours ago.

  4. MrHumble says: Nov 8, 2010 2:25 PM

    ESPN just announced that wade was fired and garrett is taking over

  5. Brewcityitalian says: Nov 8, 2010 2:26 PM

    Pretty funny, considering the cowboys website isn’t working right now !

  6. mwcarolina says: Nov 8, 2010 2:26 PM

    if the Cowboys dont think Garrett is going to be here for the future and dont trust him to coach, i wouldnt fire Wade and keep him the rest of the year, no matter how ugly it gets.

    “It turns out Phillips’ wife dropped him off at work. (We’ll be update you when she drops off the laundry.)”
    Thank god.

    You’re a little late on this – even ESPN reported this over 2 hours ago. Your jokes aren’t as funny when they’re late – maybe Phillip’s wife can remind you to write your post on time.

  9. hitwjk says: Nov 8, 2010 2:30 PM

    You realize the time it took you to type this POS headline out, you could have actually found something useful for us to read? Wadewatch? Really?????!!!!

  10. FriscoTicketP1 says: Nov 8, 2010 2:30 PM

    Is official Wade is out (per Babe Laufenburg). We know get Jerry’s redheaded stepchild…

  11. RAMROD says: Nov 8, 2010 2:31 PM

    Nothing like milking the hits with a 5 sentence post. Never before has firing a 1-7 coach been this BIG of a deal.
    “Wadewatch 2010 reached such frenzied levels on Monday that folks (aka turds like Mike Florio) noticed Phillips’ car was missing from its usual spot.”
    Even Cowgirl fans don’t care about the Cowboys. I’m sure there is a Favre/Chilly post laying around somewhere you can throw up?

  12. stubabe says: Nov 8, 2010 2:31 PM

    Next headline-Wade Has Left The Building. And The City.

  13. Derrick says: Nov 8, 2010 2:32 PM

    wade has been fired per Dallas radio, Garrett now headcoach

  14. timbo51 says: Nov 8, 2010 2:32 PM

    read this article about 2 hours ago on ESPN.com way late on updates buddy.

  15. Austskate says: Nov 8, 2010 2:32 PM

    Can we please stop with this Favre-type coverage. Just tell us when he’s fired. I don’t need an update every time Wade Phillips bowels move

  16. flagg says: Nov 8, 2010 2:32 PM

    With all the sweating Wade is doing she better double scrub those pits…

  17. jaxBill says: Nov 8, 2010 2:32 PM

    After last night’s abomination, I’d be afraid to start my car, too.

  18. themage78 says: Nov 8, 2010 2:33 PM

    And Phillips has left the building!

  19. franco360 says: Nov 8, 2010 2:33 PM

    Wade’s been fired. Garrett is now interim head coach.
    Per CBS11 in Dallas.

  20. zygi milf says: Nov 8, 2010 2:34 PM

    Fired

  21. gbsn3219 says: Nov 8, 2010 2:34 PM

    He got fired. It’s kind of sad some random guy in Cincinnati has to inform PFT of that information.

  22. villain_001 says: Nov 8, 2010 2:34 PM

    who cares really?

  23. purpleman527 says: Nov 8, 2010 2:34 PM

    It took you three hours to get the story right.
    Has Wade used the bathroom “within the building” as he has in the past? Because if he has spent more than an hour on the toilet, something could be up !

  24. Nacho Nacho Cheez says: Nov 8, 2010 2:34 PM

    Way to get on this PFT.
    ESPN was reporting this before lunch.
    Let’s try and stay current.

  25. MightyMightyLAFootball says: Nov 8, 2010 2:35 PM

    PFT is in full-throttled vulture mode. And Wade is the roadkill…

  26. SDW2001 says: Nov 8, 2010 2:35 PM

    Fox is reporting he has been fired.

  27. wydok says: Nov 8, 2010 2:35 PM

    Ah thank you. Thank you very much. Mama!

  28. QuincyCarter says: Nov 8, 2010 2:35 PM

    We already know he got fied lets go already

  29. Ron Mexico's Pit Bulls says: Nov 8, 2010 2:36 PM

    Per Babe Laughinburg (CBS Dallas), Wade has been fired. Replaced by Garrett.

  30. Texan says: Nov 8, 2010 2:36 PM

    If the Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones wants the Cowboys to be the best they can be as he says that he does, he needs to take a good long hard look at the General Manager that is sabotaging his organization.
    And don’t suggest new HCs like Gruden who need Dungy to build a playoff team for them to win a Super Bowl. Gruden works well with Bruce Allen as GM. He wouldn’t have that luxury with Jerry Jones as GM.
    Bill Cowher spent 13 seasons bogged down in pet projects like Kordell Stewart. If he were the Cowboys H?C the past 13 seasons (the same amount of time it took him to win a Super Bowl in Pittsburgh), the Cowboys would have Drew Henson, Chad Huytvhinson, and Quincy Carter as QBs. That’s the guys that GM Jerry Jones brought to Dallas as pet projects.

  31. Scourge says: Nov 8, 2010 2:37 PM

    Is the boy wonder, Jason Garret going to take over?

  32. AbnInf says: Nov 8, 2010 2:38 PM

    KEGL here in Dallas just announced Wade got axed FWIW

  33. froggy says: Nov 8, 2010 2:38 PM

    He gone. You guys spit the bit on this one. Everyone knows but you two doofuses.

  34. BillsFanMan says: Nov 8, 2010 2:39 PM

    More hard hitting commentary and reporting from PFT.

  35. awdlmd says: Nov 8, 2010 2:39 PM

    That move was about as smart as using all your timeouts so you can’t challenge. Now if he gets fired he’s stuck there until his wife picks him up.

  36. Tenacious D says: Nov 8, 2010 2:39 PM

    really PFT? please update me to when his vehicle leaves for the night (extreme sarcasm). how about you dont post any more Wade news until he is fired or gets another vote of confidence. there must be more interesting stories to write about.

  37. troll_aikman8 says: Nov 8, 2010 2:40 PM

    Red Headed Jesus will now take over the sideline.
    The only guy in the world with less emotion or fire than Wade Phillips is now the interim coach.

  38. crazyguy says: Nov 8, 2010 2:40 PM

    Hopefully the Mini-scrotum Queens keep Chilly… then my day will be made.

  39. ST214EVER says: Nov 8, 2010 3:00 PM

    Please don’t fire Wade, he is a beast!!! He’s a hell of a DC but he was the wrong guy to put in that particular position. Combine his awshucks personality with Romo’s glad to be here personality and you have yourself a problem.
    I don’t see any bad people on the Cowboys staff or roster. They need some pricks in the locker room and on the coaching staff to ruffle some feathers when things get tough.
    I believe the Cowboy’s are the most non-confrontational group in the NFL. JJ has assembled a group of nice guys (yes men) who have rid themselves of any “troublemakers” and have a group of company guys that would never get out of line.
    “Keep your mouth shut and collect your check, you see what happened to TO?” Sounds like a typical Cowboy locker room conversation to me.
