HOUSTON (AP) -

The Houston Texans thought they would be preparing for a deep run in the playoffs.
    
Instead as the new year approaches, they're looking for a new coach and have the No. 1 pick in the draft after a stunning collapse cost coach Gary Kubiak his job and left them with the NFL's worst record.
    
Defensive coordinator Wade Phillips took over as interim coach when Kubiak was fired. Houston ended the season on a 14-game skid. Phillips, who dealt with the death of his father Bum during the season, was ready to put this rough year behind him.
    
He walked into his last press conference on Monday with a plaintive plea of: "Let's wrap up the season - please."
