After a series of unsuccessful matches this season, Jerry Jones, the owner of the team finally decided to dismiss Wade Phillips, to get him replaced by the new coaches, Jason Garrett and Paul Pasqualoni.

Paul Pasqualoni has been named as the new defensive coordinator while Jason Garrett Would be the new offensive coordinator of Dallas Cowboys, as Wade Phillips was fired earlier yesterday. Since Barry Switzer left in 1997, the team had four coaches. Chan Gailey for two seasons, Dave Campo for three seasons, Bill Parcells for fours seasons and Wade Phillips for 3. However, where all the former coaches were sustained till the end of the seasons, for the first time Jerry Jones fired a coach is the middle of a season. But this suspension was inevitable as Wade Phillips failed to prove his worth quite consistently. The matter took a serious turn after the humiliating defeat of the team on Sunday’s with a miserable 45-7 score against the Green Bay Packers. It was a fifth straight loss for the team, who now stands at 1-7. While appointing Wade Phillips as the coach, Jerry Jones felt that his defensive expertise would be an asset for the team, but that did not show up in the last three games.

Jerry Jones stated that he was initially reluctant about changing the coach in the middle of the season, but he was left with no other options as the team still has a narrow chance of winning with eight games left. So he did not want to take a chance. Quarter back Jon Kitna said that any time a coach gets changed, it is an indictment of the football team. Although Wade Phillips was revered by the entire team for his polite and pleasant behavior, his firing would serve as a wake up call.
