The transition of the last week was likely hardest of Cowboys assistant Wes Phillips, who feels about his dad getting fired but yet has to work under interim head coach Jason Garrett.
Phillips said he would be professional and do his very best for Garrett and the Cowboys.
It goes without saying he wouldn't still be here if Garrett didn't want him here. Garrett said the younger Phillips is a valued member of the staff.
“Wes is one of the great assets of this staff," Garrett said. "He’s been my right hand man for the last three years. He just does an outstanding job. He knows football. He likes football. He’s one of those guys who is always ahead of things and helps me immensely that way. He sees the game, he understands and can coach different positions. He’s really a huge asset for us."
