Wade Phillips Fired By Cowboys: Confirmation Comes From ESPN, FOX Sports

Around 2:00 p.m. CBS-11 reported that Dallas Cowboys head coach Wade Phillips had been fired. It was an hour before the usual suspects, like ESPN, confirmed the CBS-11 report. Now Jay Glazer of FOXSports.com reports via Twitter that Phillips is telling people within the Cowboys organization that he has been fired.

Phillips' final numbers with the Cowboys come in at 34-22 in the regular season and 1-2 in the playoffs. What ultimately did him in was the 1-7 record the Cowboys are currently sporting. SB Nation's Blogging The Boys has been waiting for Jerry Jones to make a decision on Phillips.

But it all came crashing down in 2010. The team has gone 1-7, and has lost all competitiveness; they were the walking dead. Jerry Jones finally came to his senses and realized this was the only move he could make.

The CBS-11 report said that it would Jason Garrett who gets the nod as head coach replacing Phillips and ESPN reports that's the case. Now that the news is circulating the Cowboys will likely be confirming the reports. Garrett came to the Cowboys as offensive coordinator in 2007 and has been among the NFL's highest paid assistants. Many figured it would be Garrett getting the job was Phillips was fired.

Garrett now gets a Cowboys that has its starting QB done possibly for the season and faces the task of trying to salvage a 1-7 season.

Check out Blogging The Boys to see what Cowboys fans are saying about Wade Phillips getting fired.
