HOUSTON (AP) - Wade Phillips was fired as the Houston Texans' defensive coordinator Saturday, a day after Bill O'Brien was hired as the team's head coach.

''Thanks to McNair family and great Texan fans and most all our players,'' Phillips tweeted. ''It was wonderful being home. I wish the best to all.

Phillips was the interim head coach for the final three games of the season after Gary Kubiak was fired and also directed the team for a game after Kubiak had a mini-stroke Nov. 3 at halftime against Indianapolis. Houston lost its last 14 games to finish an NFL-worst 2-14.

The 66-year-old Phillips, the son of late NFL coach Bum Phillips, spent three years with the Texans. He was the head coach in Denver, Buffalo and Dallas and served as interim head coach with Atlanta and New Orleans.
