Sean Payton remains on the Packers' list of head coaching candidates but it is not yet, "a short list."
TheRanchReport.com has learned that Cowboys offensive coordinator Sean Payton has competition from a diverse list of candidates that include Wade Phillips, who went through an unpublicized meeting with the club on Monday.
Phillips is a high-profile name whith head coaching experience, family ties, "he's the son of Bum," and a fine 205 resume item - as defensive coordinator of the Chargers.
Peyton would also come with the endorsement of Bill Parcells and as the offensive coordinator would be in competition for the job with another offesnive coordinator - the 49ers Mike McCarthy who is also interviewing to replace the fired Mike Sherman.
Phillips is also expected to draw interest from the Houston Texans.
Not only because of his father's Houston legacy, but also because he was once the defensive coordinator for Dan Reeves.
