Wade Phillips Pays Visit to Son, Wes, at Redskins Park

by Chris Lingebach

WASHINGTON (CBSDC) — Former Dallas Cowboys head coach Wade Phillips paid a visit to his son, Redskins tight ends coach Wes Phillips, as Redskins Park in Ashburn on Monday.

On Twitter, where the elder Phillips was the first to break the news of his son’s hiring in January, described the reason for his visit as “sons take their dads to work day.”

Wade, at one point the defensive coordinator for the Eagles (1986-88), and more recently the head coach of the Cowboys (2007-10), is certainly no stranger to the NFC East, or to being an opponent of the Redskins, so the image of him at headquarters is undoubtedly startling, at first glance.

The idea of a father and son hanging together at Redskins Park, in and of itself, is sure to send chills down the spines of the burgundy and gold faithful.

One more line on Wade Phillips at Redskins Park, from Andrew Walker of Redskins.com.

“I think it’s gonna be a big year for this team … I’m impressed with their personnel here,” Wade Phillips said. “I’m obviously a big Redskins fan now.”
