    IRVING – Less than 10 months after he was given a two-year contract extension, Wade Phillips is no longer the Cowboys head coach.

    For the first time in team history, the Cowboys have made an in-season coaching change with owner and general manager Jerry Jones handing the interim job to their assistant head coach Jason Garrett.

    "Obviously this is a difficult decision for me," Jones said. "Our team and our organization, we're grateful to Wade and his contributions to the Cowboys in leading us to two division titles in his first three seasons with the club. We also clearly understand we're not where we want to be at this time and that's understatement. We also share the responsibility in that, all of us."
