Former NFL coach Bum Phillips dies at 90

Bum Phillips, the folksy Texas football icon who coached the NFL's Houston Oilers and New Orleans Saints, died Friday at his home in Goliad, Texas. He was 90 and had been in declining health. Phillips was a Lone Star original in his blue jeans, cowboy boots and trademark white Stetson -- except at the Astrodome or any other domed stadium because he was taught it was disrespectful to wear a hat indoors.
