In the wake of an embarrassing 45-7 loss to the Green Bay Packers, the Dallas Cowboys have fired head coach Wade Phillips, NFL Network's Michael Lombardi confirms.

Assistant head coach Jason Garrett will replace Phillips on an interim basis, according to Lombardi.

This is the first time the Cowboys have fired a head coach in the middle of the season, something owner Jerry Jones had publicly said he was hesitant to do amid the team's early struggles.

Phillips led the Cowboys to a 34-22 regular season record since he was hired in 2007, including a 13-3 record in his first season. The Cowboys followed with a first-round exit in the playoffs at the hands of the Seattle Seahawks.

Last season, Phillips led the Cowboys to their first playoff win since 1996 with a 34-14 win over the Philadelphia Eagles. It would be Phillips' only playoff win as coach of the Cowboys. He finished his tenure with a 1-2 postseason record.

Speaking to reporters after the Cowboys' latest loss dropped the team to 1-7, Jones indicated changes could be on the horizon.

"There are a lot of people that certainly are going to suffer and suffer consequences," Jones said Sunday night.

The Cowboys had scheduled a press conference at 5:00 p.m. ET in which Phillips was expected to speak.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

After a little sign of hope for success in the post-season after beating the Eagles in their first playoff win since 96 as well as the fans saying SB! SB! SB! the cowboys got overrated big time and wade payed the price unfortunately.

No real surprise.
Any coach who has a record of 1-7 is likely to go.

Had to be done, but not sure Garrett is much better. In some ways I hope the team continues to tank, at least then Garrett wont get the permanent job next year.

Good. He was a terrible coach anyway. We shouldve been going a lot better for a few years now with the rosters we've had. Hopefully we can save the tiniest bit of face to finish this year.

I think the reason the Cowboys had such high hopes of doing so well this season is because the Superbowl is in Dallas. But yeah, the decision had to be made.
