Wade Phillips is in his third season as the Houston Texans defensive coordinator. Phillips has 37 years of coaching experience, including the last 31 as a defensive coordinator or head coach. Phillips was named Texans defensive coordinator on Jan. 5, 2011.
Phillips has helped orchestrate 14 top-10 defensive performances and has helped lead teams to 13 playoff appearances, all of which have come since 1988, as a head coach or defensive coordinator.
He has reached the playoffs in his first season with each of the last eight teams he has taken over as head coach or defensive coordinator, including the Houston Texans in 2011. Phillips' defense helped the Texans win a franchise-record 12 games in 2012 and make their second consecutive trip to the playoffs.
Phillips's professional coaching career began in Houston in 1976 as the linebackers coach under his father, longtime NFL coach Bum Phillips. While working along side the elder Phillips, the Oilers introduced the 3-4 defense to the NFL. After a year as the linebackers coach in 1976, Phillips moved to handling the defensive line responsibilities from 1977 to 1980. Hall of Fame defensive end Elvin Bethea was a three time Pro Bowl selection while working with Phillips, while linebacker Robert Brazile earned four of his seven consecutive Pro Bowl selections from 1977 to 1980.
Phillips began his coaching career at his alma mater, the University of Houston, in 1969 as a graduate assistant. He then coached at Orange, Texas, High School from 1970-72. In 1973, he joined the Oklahoma State University staff coaching linebackers for two seasons. Phillips was then hired to coach the defensive line at Kansas State in 1975, his last season coaching in the college ranks.
Wade Phillips was born June 21, 1947 in Orange, Texas. He was a three-year starter at linebacker for the University of Houston from 1966-68 after a standout career at Port Neches-Groves High School in Port Neches, Texas. Phillips and wife Laurie have one son, Wesley, who is an assistant coach with the Dallas Cowboys, and a daughter, Tracy, who is a professional actress, dancer and choreographer in Hollywood, California.
