Wade Phillips was the defensive coordinator and interim head coach for the Houston Texans last season, but the 66-year-old is currently looking for a job. He has plenty of time on his hands right now, so he can come up with some pretty amazing facts.

From 2007 to 2010, Phillips was the head coach of the Dallas Cowboys. He led the team to two NFC East titles and went 1-2 in the playoffs. Furthermore, he led his team to a winning record in three of his four seasons.

When Phillips was fired after Dallas started the 2010 season 1-7, Jason Garrett took over. 

Garrett guided the team to a 5-3 finish in 2010 and has seen his squad finish 8-8 in each of the past three seasons. The Cowboys have lost winner-take-all games in Week 17 in each of the past three seasons, which means he has yet to lead Dallas to the postseason.

Phillips pointed out an interesting fact:

He did try to clarify his tweet a few hours later:

Had he really wanted to take a shot at Garrett, Phillips could have easily pointed out the number of postseason appearances by each coach.
