Dallas Cowboy head coach Wade Phillips has been fired

IRVING, TX (KCBD) - Dallas news stations are reporting that Dallas Cowboy head coach Wade Phillips has been fired.

Jason Garrett, the Cowboys assistant head coach and offensive coordinator, has been named the new interim head coach.

The Cowboys are off to their worst start since 1989, with a 1-7 record. That record includes five straight losses. This is the first time, in Dallas Cowboys history, that a head coach has been fired mid-season.

Phillips was the seventh coach in Cowboys history (take a look at the Cowboys coaches through the years) and came to the team with more than 30 years of NFL coaching experience. In his three+ seasons with the Cowboys, Phillips complied a 34-22 record.

The Dallas Cowboys are scheduled to hold a press conference at 4:00 p.m.
