Owner Jerry Jones again expressed his support for his coach and refuted the suggestion the Cowboys need to win a playoff game for Wade Phillips to keep his job.
“That’s too succinct,” Jones said before the Cowboys’ practice at Valley Ranch. “We especially, since, the best thing to do for the future for us other than to get to the Super Bowl, is not have any coaching changes, that’s the best thing to do.”
However, although Jones continually given Phillips a vote of confidence, he has not given him a contract extension. Phillips is in the final year of his three-year deal. The Cowboys hold an option for 2010.
Phillips is 32-16 in his three seasons, but he has yet to win a playoff game. He is 0-4 in his career in the postseason.
