    Cowboys to name Phillips new head coach

    Tom Landry, Jimmy Johnson, Bill Parcells ... Cowboys fans have been waiting for the next big name to lead a storied franchise. They might be surprised by the answer.
    League and Cowboys sources have told ESPN's Chris Mortensen that Chargers defensive coordinator Wade Phillips will be named Dallas' head coach. Phillips traveled from San Diego to Dallas on Wednesday night after being told that he was their choice to replace the now-retired Parcells.

    While contract details must still be worked out and a contract signed, a formal team announcement for Phillips could come as early as Thursday.
    Cowboys owner Jerry Jones had reportedly been torn between hiring a defensive- or offensive-minded coach. Choosing Phillips answers that question and addresses issues with Chicago Bears defensive coordinator Ron Rivera. The Cowboys have been running a 3-4 defense while Rivera is the architect of Chicago's successful 4-3 scheme. Phillips has had great success with the 3-4 defense throughout his career and helped the Chargers to a 14-2 regular-season record in 2006.

    Who cares? I don't. I hate Dallas, they can hire who ever they want as long as it is not Bill Cowher.

    It makes sense with Dallas running the 43, plus had Norv gotten the job he might have taken over the play calling too that Jason Garrott was hired for.
