Wade Phillips To Become Rams Defensive Coordinator


When it comes to defensive expertise at the highest level, you’d be hard-pressed to find someone more qualified than 69-year-old Wade Phillips. For the past two seasons, Phillips was the mastermind behind the great Denver Broncos defense that won a Super Bowl last season.

Denver was honored to have Phillips as their defensive coordinator on two separate occasions and now, Phillips is ready to take control of his eighth different team.

The Rams finished 9th in total defense and 23rd in points allowed per game this past season. However, the points allowed per game is a bit deceiving considering they were on the field so much due to their porous offense.
