Bio: After spending his first seven NFL seasons as a part of the Dallas Cowboys’ staff, Wes Phillips came over to the Washington Redskins in 2014 as the team’s tight ends coach. He’s held the position ever since. During that time, he’s helped Jordan Reed become one of the best tight ends in the NFL, as well as work with veteran Vernon Davis to remain a productive player more than a dozen years into his career. Prior to coaching in the NFL, Phillips was the quarterbacks coach at West Texas A&M and later Baylor. Phillips was himself a quarterback at UTEP, playing 11 games during his senior season of 2001.
