Not only did the Dallas Cowboys notch their first victory of the season this week in Houston, but head coach Wade Phillips reached a milestone of his own. He tied his father, Bum Phillips, with 82 career victories.

Wade’s record as a head coach is 82-56, while his father tallied a head coaching record of 82-77.

“It proves I’ve been in it a long time. I mean, he’s my hero. I think he’s one of the greatest coaches that I’ve ever been around. I’ve been around several Hall of Fame head coaches. I’ve been around guys with 200 wins. He’s the best I’ve ever been around,” said Wade of tying his father’s record.
