After falling to 1-7 back with an embarrassing 45-7 home loss to the Green Bay Packers back in 2010, then-head coach Wade Phillips was shown the door in Dallas, a move that brought on the beginning of the Jason Garrett era. On Thursday night, Phillips will return to the sidelines of AT&T Stadium for the first time since that career-altering loss to Green Bay, as the Houston Texans defensive coordinator.
Despite the bitter end to his time in Dallas, Phillips said this week that he doesn’t regret anything about his time working under Jerry Jones.
“Whatever’s happened, happened,” Phillips said, per ESPN Dallas. “And you learn from the past, but you go forward in the future with a great attitude. That’s part of life. That’s what you do. That's what you teach players to do and that’s what I believe in. I enjoyed every day. … Jerry Jones was a great owner for me and did all the things that I asked him to do, so I don’t have any regrets."
“Sure, we would’ve liked to have won it all. That would’ve been better, but I know I did the best I could while I was there, and I don’t look back and say, “What if this would’ve happened?’ or ‘What if that would’ve happened?’” said Phillips.
