Phillips just recently finished up a two-year stint as defensive coordinator for the L.A. Rams and, at 72, is still hoping to continue his prolific coaching career with another team.
“I definitely qualify as a senior assistant.” Phillips joked during the interview. “I’d like to coach some. I think I could help somewhere.”
Coach also talks candidly during the interview about his relationship with his father, the incomparable Bum Phillips, a coaching legend in his own right. Wade recently wrote a book called “Son of Bum” which chronicles his relationship with his father and how Bum helped shape him into the person and coach he is today.
