Phillips to coach East-West Shrine Game

IRVING, Texas -- After he was fired by the Cowboys Wade Phillips said he wanted to continue to coach and he will get the chance Jan. 22 at the East-West Shrine Game in Orlando.

Phillips will coach against his former boss, Dan Reeves. He was Reeves’ defensive coordinator in Denver and Atlanta and was his full-time successor with the Broncos and on an interim basis in Atlanta.

Harold Richardson is the East-West Shrine Game’s executive director and some of you might remember his brief time on the Cowboys’ staff in 2007 after Wade Wilson was suspended for five games by the NFL. Richardson is an SMU grad and worked with Phillips in New Orleans and Denver.
