All who ever met Bum knew immediately that he was the embodiment of a Texan and a man. He touched the lives of so very many people and I was fortunate to be one of them. He worked hard, played hard and lived a godly life, I will miss him and will never forget his humble spirit and zest for life. Rest in peace, Bum, we will not see your like again. PN-G Class of 1966

Great football coach but a even better man. We could use some more like him in important positions especially in Washington. A man of great integrity. I only got to get near enough to him to speak one time but he was in conversation with fellow coaches after practice in Nacadogoes one year.

Heartfelt condolences to the Phillips family. May the special memories you hold in your heart help you through this difficult time. Keeping you close in my thoughts and prayers. In Deepest Sympathy,

You were about the only one to give the Pittsburgh Steelers credit for their success in the 1970's. It was you who said "The road to the Super Bowl goes though Pittsburgh," a slogan that Bill Cowher lifted from you. (I also remember some kid yanked off your cowboy hat at you marched back to the locker room after a defeat in Pittsburgh.)

Thanks for the laughs, bless your Texas-sized soul!
