HOUSTON (AP) — Wade Phillips was fired as the Houston Texans' defensive coordinator Saturday, a day after Bill O'Brien was hired as the team's head coach.
Wade Phillips would like to put an asterisk on Peyton Manning's touchdown record.
Defensive coordinator Wade Phillips believes his scheme with the Texans works just fine, despite what Ed Reed says.
Ed Reed insists Houston Texans defensive coordinator Wade Phillips is doing a poor job, and the safety was released by the team earlier this month because Reed spoke up about it.
Now with the New York Jets, Reed said in a conference call with the Baltimore media on Wednesday that the Houston defense "is not a good fit for a lot of people who are still down there."
Reed missed the first two games after offseason hip surgery and was recently relegated to a backup role. On Friday, he expressed his displeasure at not starting, and on Sunday, after Houston's seventh straight loss, he publicly criticized the team and said the Texans were outplayed and outcoached.
Houston Texans coach Gary Kubiak was back with his team, if only for a short visit.
Texans defensive coordinator Wade Phillips will take over as Houston's interim head coach and try to help the team end a six-game skid with Gary Kubiak out indefinitely after suffering a mini-stroke this weekend
Houston coach Gary Kubiak collapsed leaving the field at halftime of the Texans' game Sunday night against Indianapolis and was taken by ambulance to a hospital.
Phillips loved the Oilers and when coaching the team in the 1970s, he famously said of the Cowboys: "They may be 'America's Team,' but we're Texas' team."
Bum Phillips, the folksy Texas football icon who coached the Houston Oilers during their Luv Ya Blue heyday and later led the New Orleans Saints, died Friday. He was 90.

J.J. Watt was so good last season that Houston defensive coordinator Wade Phillips called it the "best season ever" for a defensive lineman.
Just before the season, Houston defensive coordinator Wade Phillips was asked what he wanted from his defense in 2012 after the unit made a remarkable turnaround to finish second in the NFL in yards allowed last season.
The firings have taken place over the last few days and Phillips acknowledged his release on Twitter on Saturday.
"We did get some good news. Actually, it's bad news for Peyton Manning because the league did come back and say that the ball was juggled by Decker and shouldn't have been a touchdown," Phillips said at the beginning of his Friday news conference.
