Who's the Next Head Coach?????

In case you've lived in a rock and didn't come out of it until now, I'm here to inform you that Gary Kubiak has been fired, and Wade Phillips becomes interim head coach. That means Wade Phillips becomes the next head coach right? Not so fast!!! Owner Bob Mcnair mentioned Phillips (of course) but he also mentioned Lovie Smith.

Phillips Has been the head coach for the Bills, Broncos, and Cowboys, as well as the interim head coach for the Saints, Falcons, and now the Texans. His overall head coaching record is 82-59, but only 1-5 in the playoffs, the lone win coming from the Cowboys in the 2010 season.

Lovie Smith, who was raised just 200 miles away from Houston in Big Sandy, Texas (by Tyler), was the head coach for the Chicago Bears from 2004-2012. His record was 81-63 over his 9 seasons as their head coach, but only made the playoffs 3 times, twice advancing to at least the NFC championship game, once to the Super Bowl, losing to the Indianapolis Colts. His playoff record is 3-3. When he was fired by the Bears, he left a team that was 10-6, so his team was not horrible when he was let go. He can go far in the playoffs....once he made it.

These coaches were mentioned by Bob Mcnair at the press conference.
