Wade Phillips named Defensive Coordinator
Phillips recent stint was with Atlanta, where he spent two seasons (2002-03) as defensive coordinator. He also served as Atlanta's interim head coach after Dan Reeves was released from his contract on Dec. 10, 2003 for the Falcons' final three games, going 2-1.
The staple of Phillips' defense has been its ability to create turnovers. In 2003, on a terrible defense, the Falcons created 31 turnovers good for third most in the league. The Falcons also registered more sacks than the Chargers, 36-to-30, a testament to Phillips schemes.
In 2002, the numbers were even more impressive as Phillips guided the Falcons defense to 47 sacks, second-most in team history; 39 total takeaways, second in the league, and 24 interceptions, the fourth-highest total in the league.
What defense will they deploy? It is still to be determined.
