One Down, Two to Go?

San Diego defensive coordinator Wade Phillips interviewed Friday with the Dallas Cowboys about replacing Bill Parcells.

Phillips, the former head coach at Denver and at Buffalo who also had interim stints in New Orleans and Atlanta, said he had a "very encompassing talk" with Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones. Phillips has a 48-39 coaching record.

Jones also plans to talk to San Francisco offensive coordinator Norv Turner, a former head coach for Washington and Oakland, and New Orleans defensive coordinator Gary Gibbs.

Both are former Dallas assistants.

Gibbs was scheduled to interview Saturday. Turner is coaching at the Senior Bowl on Saturday, and is expected to interview Sunday.

The Cowboys have already hired their offensive cooridinator for the 2007 season - Jason Garrett. Garrett, a former reserve quarterback for Dallas in the 1990's, was the quarterbacks coach for the Miami Dolphins last season.
