He always wore a big hat, except when games were played in a dome. He told Howard Cosell his mama always told him it was bad manners to wear a hat indoors!
He got to be 90; a few more years, and he'd of been as old as Daveindiego!
Bum Phillips, the folksy Texas football icon who coached the Houston Oilers during their Luv Ya Blue heyday and also led the New Orleans Saints, died Friday. He was 90.
"Bum is gone to Heaven," son Wade Phillips tweeted Friday night. "Loved and will be missed by all â great Dad, Coach, and Christian."
Phillips died at his ranch in Goliad.
