Aside from two separate stints as interim head coach of the Houston Texans during the 2013 season, Denver Broncos defensive coordinator Wade Phillips has not had a head coaching job in the NFL since he was fire mid-season by the Dallas Cowboys in 2010.
But if he were to take over as head coach of a team again, he’d want it to be the Cowboys.
“If it ever comes open again in Dallas,” Phillips said, via Michael Jaycox of Mile High Sports.

Phillips was 34-22 in his three and a half seasons as Cowboys head coach, and is 82-64 all time as a head coach in the regular season. He is 1-5 in the playoffs, though that one playoff win came with the Cowboys, over the Eagles in the Wild Card round in 2009.
That said, Jason Garrett just oversaw a 4-12 season without his seat heating up at all, so it’s not like the job is even close to coming open again.
