I have to say, Phil's status is a real burning mystery to me. As dudacek has pointed out, keeping him seemed like a slam dunk two months ago even with the team slumping. But the extent of the collapse makes shitcanning him very plausible. Although I still think it's unlikely he gets fired, you can easily imagine a scenario where Jason slams a door and comes out and says he didn't really want to do it, but this kind of performance can't be tolerated. Then there's Brawndo's theory that Phil wasn't really a Botterill hire, and Jason could go to Terry and have lots of ammo for bringing in his own coach.
