Dallas Cowboys Coach Wade Phillips insisted Friday that he had never said that New England's three Super Bowl championships were tainted. Two days before the already much-hyped matchup of 5-0 teams, when the Patriots play in Dallas, Phillips denied making such comments after New England Coach Bill Belichick was fined $500,000 and the team lost a draft pick for videotaping an opposing sideline this season.

Exactly a year later, the "Music City Miracle" is still wreaking havoc on the Buffalo Bills. Wade Phillips was fired for refusing to give up on the special teams coach he hired in the wake of the Jan. 8, 2000, loss to Tennessee that eliminated the Bills from last year's playoffs. Bills' owner Ralph Wilson said Monday he considered the firing of Ronnie Jones, in his first year as special teams coach, "imperative for the improvement of our team."

The Buffalo Bills fired coach Wade Phillips late Sunday night, ESPN.com reported. Team owner Ralph Wilson dismissed the coach because Phillips declined to make staffing changes suggested by Wilson last week. One team source and another source close to Phillips confirmed the firing for CBS SportsLine.com and said the decision would be announced today. Neither Phillips nor Wilson could be reached for comment.

Each time there was a lull during an interview session with Denver Coach Mike Shanahan on Tuesday, it seemed as if someone stuck a microphone or a tape recorder in his face and asked about Gary Kubiak. Kubiak is the Broncos' young offensive coordinator, rumored to be among candidates to become the next Dallas Cowboy coach. An NFL source says that's all it is, a rumor, but, to hear Shanahan, Kubiak deserves to be high on Jerry Jones' list.

Wade Phillips succeeded retired Marv Levy as coach of the Buffalo Bills on Monday and made it clear the team has a long road back to the Super Bowl. "This isn't a Super Bowl team," Phillips said. "We have a big job to do, and we know that." The Bills were 6-10 this season. Sources said Phillips signed a four-year contract at $750,000-$800,000 a season. He immediately made linebacker coach Ted Cottrell his defensive coordinator.
