O.A. "Bum" Phillips | Titans Ring of Honor
O.A. "Bum" Phillips will be inducted in the Tennessee Titan's Ring of Honor. Phillips was the personification of the 'Luv Ya Blue Era' as the head coach of the Oilers for six seasons (1975-80). He owns the best winning percentage (.608) by a Titans/Oilers head coach who has coached at least two full seasons, totaling a 59-38 mark. He took over a team that hadn't experienced a winning season in eight campaigns and built it into a contender for the duration of his tenure, going 10-4 in his first season and reaching the AFC Championship game in 1978 and 1979. He originally joined the Oilers as the team's defensive coordinator in 1974 and was elevated to head coach a year later. (AP Images)
