Redskins to Interview Wes Phillips

Phillips has been an assistant with the Cowboys since 2007



    Longtime Dallas Cowboys assistant Wes Phillips is set to interview with the Washington Redskins this week, Todd Archer of ESPN Dallas reports.

    Phillips, whose contract expires this year, came to Dallas in 2007 when his pop, Wade, was installed as head coach. He stuck around after the elder Phillips was fired midway through the 2010 season and, in 2011 and 2012, he served as the Cowboys’ assistant offensive line coach.

    Last offseason, Phillips signed a one-year deal to stay on with Dallas as tight ends coach.

    Under Phillips in 2013, Cowboys’ tight ends recorded 94 catches for 1,058 yards and 10 touchdowns, though the lion’s share of that production--73 of the catches, 851 of the yards and eight of the touchdowns--came from likely future Hall of Famer Jason Witten.

    Earlier this week, the Redskins promoted their own tight ends coach, Sean McVay, to offensive coordinator.
