Default Bum Phillips Dies at 90

He was one of my favorite coaches in the day.

One of the first coaches to implement the 3-4 defense.

"Mama always said that if it can't rain on you, you're indoors," Phillips said.

Fans loved his no-nonsense demeanor and were entertained by his often blunt comments
"Football is a game of failure," Phillips was quoted as saying. "You fail all the time, but you aren't a failure until you start blaming someone else."


My father told me he had the largest hand he had ever shook besides Rocky Marciano.
