After a very successful six-year tenure as the Executive Director of the Reese’s Senior Bowl, Phil was named as the new General Manager of the Phoenix franchise in the new Alliance of American Football league on June 1, 2018. A native of Mobile, Alabama, Phil has enjoyed a remarkable “football life” that now spans three decades and has included virtually every job in the sport.



Beginning as a 6-year old quarterback for the Mims Park Redskins, he continued at Murphy High School and progressed to the University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee, where he played football and baseball. Following his graduation in 1987 with a degree in English, his career has included stints as a coach on offense and defense and as an area scout, personnel director and general manager. Off the field, he has also prospered as an author, speaker and radio and television analyst. Phil truly has an amazing, ever-encompassing perspective on all things football.



In 2017, St. Martin’s Press released Phil’s book, 4th and Goal Every Day, which is his 360-degree view of the Crimson Tide program. From his childhood in Alabama to serving on Bill Belichick’s Cleveland Browns’ staff in the early 1990’s and then being the Crimson Tide radio analyst for the last nine-plus seasons, he gives the reader a complete and thorough picture of what it takes to win and explains why Alabama has enjoyed so much success over the past decade.

Commish here

Really glad that you put together a podcast now fill. I appreciate also your insights on the college game probably the only place that I will pretty much listen to anything dealing with college football. I am really interested in your AAF insights as to who’s coming and who’s going. And I also very much appreciate your insights to not just the NFL games but also a coaching segment on clock management this time. Certainly will keep you on my list.
