Proud owner of a career 82-63 record, Phillips is now stumping for the permanent job with the Houston Texans. "I can go into all of the stats and all of that stuff. Nobody wants to hear those," Phillips said Monday, via the Houston Chronicle. "But if you look at the record, I think I have a lot to offer as a head coach. That's for somebody else to decide." Phillips didn't even want to provide an answer when asked if he would consider returning as the defensive coordinator under a new coach. "If I say that," Phillips reasoned, "they won't hired me as the head coach." Owner Bob McNair has confirmed that Phillips is a candidate to keep the job in 2014.
