Todd Archer has an article up that says the Tuna has reserved rooms for the Senior Bowl. That sounds like he's coming back.
Parcells is planning on attending the Senior Bowl practices in Mobile, Ala., and a room is reserved for the coach at the team's hotel.
I think we all felt he was coming back, but going to the Senior Bowl and reaching out for assistants is tangible evidence.
But just in case the Tuna pulls a 180 on us, Jerry has his list of replacements in hand, and the same name keeps popping up.
One Cowboys front-office member said this week that the Cowboys are impressed with what Phillips could do with a 3-4 defense in Dallas, and that he might be just the coach to get maximum production out of pass-rusher DeMarcus Ware.
Then again, it looks like Phillips might have to wait at least a year before Parcells steps aside. For now, the signs point to his return.
