What I heard was that it was between Tyrrell and Phillips with the trustees.  They told Tress to make the decision and lets just say that $$$$$$$$ backed Phillips. 

Doug Phillips joined the University of Cincinnati football staff in January 2017. He coached tight ends and served as UCís special teams coordinator in 2017 before shifting to his current role as running backs coach in 2018.
 
The Youngstown, Ohio native and former high school head coach has nearly 25 years of football coaching experience, including six seasons at the NCAA FBS and FCS level and has coached in three national championship games.
 
Phillips returned to an on-field coaching role with the Bearcats after spending the 2016 season at Iowa State as the director of player personnel.
 
He was a high school administrator from 2008-15, serving as a principal and superintendent, most recently as the superintendent at West Branch Local Schools in Beloit, Ohio. Phillips was also an assistant principal and principal for the Dickson County school district in Dickson, Tenn., and principal at Dalton Local Schools (outside of Canton, Ohio) from 2009-12.
 
He coached the defensive ends and served as Bowling Greenís recruiting coordinator from 2007-08, helping the Falcons share the 2007 MAC East title and earn a bowl bid.
 
Phillips helped coach Diyral Briggs, from Mount Healthy HS, to his second consecutive first-team All-Mid-American Conference honor in 2008. Briggs finished the year with 9.5 sacks, most in the conference. Briggs also set career-highs in tackles for loss with 13.5. In two years under Phillips Briggs recorded 14.5 sacks, second-highest in the league during that span.
 
Phillips joined the Falcons staff after spending the 2006 season as the defensive quality control coach at Ohio State working with UC Head Coach Luke Fickell. He was part of a staff which won the Big Ten championship and played in the BCS title game. The Buckeyes were fifth in the country in scoring defense that season. On the field, he assisted with the Buckeye linebackers which included All-American and Bronko Nagurski Trophy winner James Laurinaitis.
 
He worked and coached for 15 years at the high school level, including nine as a head coach. A native of New Middletown, Ohio, Phillips served as head football coach at Springfield Local HS (1997-2000) and Salem HS in Salem, Ohio (2001-05), turning around both programs.
 
Phillips led his high school alma mater, Springfield Local, to back-to-back state playoff appearances. His 1999 team won the first of consecutive league championships and made the first of two playoff appearances, while his 2000 squad went undefeated in the regular season and returned to the postseason, where it to the state quarterfinals. After four years at Springfield Local (1997-2000) Phillips moved onto Salem High School, where he spent five seasons (2001-05) and guided his teams to better records every season, culminating with a league runner-up finish in 2005. In addition, he guided the school to consecutive winning records in 2004 and 2005, a feat that was accomplished for the first time in 30 years at the school.
 
Phillips received his start in college football from 1991-92 at Youngstown State with Jim Tressel. He coached tight ends, defensive backs and running backs/kickers during his stay. Under Tressel, Phillips coached in three national championship games including 2006 at OSU and in 1992 and 1991 at YSU. The Penguins won the NCAA FCS title in 1991.
 
While an undergraduate student at Toledo, Phillips got his coaching career started at Toledo St. Francis DeSales and Sylvania Northview. After earning a bachelorís degree in education from UT in 1991, he received a masterís degree in educational administration from Youngstown State in 1995.

Well, what a dumpster fire this has become. The usual.

Tyrrell was going to be the choice but from what I can gather, he wanted more money, especially to bring in certain assistants that would've cost more. Certain people in charge did not like that idea trying to go the cheapest route possible.

Phillips is a Youngstown boy and another close guy to JT and will be the new coach.

Nothing like going from a HS coach to a guy who was superintendent of West Branch schools for several years. Yikes.

Careful what u wish for.  In a days time it went from questionable to BAD.  Sad to say but its curtains for a once proud football program. Just when u thk it cant get any worse.

So we refuse to allow an extraordinarily successful high school coach to have enough funds to build a competent staff.  Then we select a character whose only head coaching experience was at two "nothing" high school programs.  This is sickening beyond belief.  But cheer up.  We still lead all mid-majors in paying for perfectly worthless assistant athletic directors.
