HOUSTON (AP) — Texans coach Gary Kubiak says his players won’t be distracted by defensive coordinator Wade Phillips’ upcoming job interview as they prepare for this weekend’s playoff game in Baltimore.
Kubiak confirmed reports Monday that Phillips will meet with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Friday to discuss their head coaching position. The Bucs fired Raheem Morris a week ago after finishing 4-12.
Houston (11-6) plays at Baltimore (12-4) on Sunday. The 64-year-old Phillips talked last week about becoming a head coach again, though he added he was content in his current job.
Phillips is still recovering from kidney and gall bladder surgery in mid-December, but still thinks he should be considered for a top NFL job. His record as a head coach is 82-59.
