Wade Phillips is a name synonymous with football, as the coach has been in the NFL since 1976 with the Houston Oilers. He won a Super Bowl as an assistant with the Denver Broncos, and was named Assistant Coach of the year in 2015, to go with a career 83-69 record as a head coach. Coach recently co-authored a book about his time in football, and some lessons his father taught him, called "Son of Bum: Lessons My Dad Taught Me About Football and Life”.


He joined the Bill Michaels Show Wednesday to talk about the book, and his career:

- What was his motivation to write the book?

- What were some early lessons his dad passed down to him?

- How difficult/easy has it been for him to adapt to today’s PC culture, and to the shift of playstyle of the NFL?

- How much pressure was there on him to win while he was in Dallas?

- What are some of the best teams he’s ever seen in the NFL?
