Legendary Coach Bum Phillips Dies

Oail  Andrew "Bum" Phillips, the former coach of the Houston Oilers during the 
infamous  "Luv Ya Blue"  years, passed away on Friday. He was 90. "Bum is gone 
to  Heaven-loved and  will be missed by all -great Dad, Coach, and Christian," 
son  Wade Phillips, the defensive coordinator for the Houston Texans, said via 
Twitter. Bum Phillips became head coach of the Oilers in 1975 and led the team 
to a 55-35 record with consecutive playoff appearances from 1978-80. Known for 
his trademark cowboy hat on the sideline,  Phillips led the Oilers to back-to- 
back  AFC Championship Game  appearances,  losing to the Steelers  in 1978 and 
'79.
