I'm sorry to hear about that! I always liked Bum Phillips. I remember him very well from his years as head coach of the Houston Oilers. He was a good coach and he seemed to be a very nice man.

R I P The city of Houston has lost one of the greatest men, a man who really fit the city.
Bum Phillips: Coach, Cowboy, Christian. That was the name of the book he wrote.

I remember Bum Phillips from his years with the Houston Oilers. They were the Boston Patriots nemesis rivals back in the day.

RIP, Mr. Phillips, you ran a good game.
