Here’s what some people in San Diego are saying about Wade Phillips.
Chargers general manager A.J. Smith, who worked with Phillips in Buffalo and was instrumental in bringing him to San Diego, said “I think he was a terrific head coach and a terrific defensive coordinator. The players have always liked and respected him over the years. ...
He has a tremendous defensive mind and uses a lot special packages to get the most out his players and their abilities. It’s remarkable how quickly he can bring people together.”
Said Chargers offensive coordinator Clarence Shelmon:
"He gets after people. He puts players in the right position to get the most out of their talents.
The players will enjoy playing for him.”
