We propose a new method to measure the coherence time of superconducting phase qubits based on the analysis of the magnetic-field dependent dc nonlinear Andreev current across a high-resistance tunnel contact between the qubit and a dirty metal wire and derive a quantitative relation between the subgap I-V characteristic and the internal correlation function of the qubit.
