    Bum Phillips, Wade's father, died on Friday night at the age of 90. “Bum” Phillips, one of the most colorful coaches in NFL history, has passed away. Phillips was 90. "He's certainly a legend," said Cowboys coach Jason Garrett, who met Bum Phillips while Bum's son, Wade, was the head coach of the Cowboys prior to Garrett. Bum Phillips had been raising money to build a home for deaf children in Goliad, Texas. Phillips coached the Houston Oilers from 1975 to 1980, and Bud Adams, the owner who moved the Oilers to Tennessee and changed their name to the Titans, released a statement today memorializing Phillips. He’s really a personal role model of mine,” Jones said, “but he was talking about how hard football is, how hard at every level, and he said, ‘but everything is alright until you start pointing your finger and blaming somebody else.’ And that’s what football has a tendency to make you do, but Monte Kiffin doesn’t do that and he basically points it directly at him and then he does something about it. We’re lucky to have him.”
