JOE IS GOING TO MIAMI. After yet another disappointing season for Tony Sparano, the Dolphins released him before the season was over and then the race to see who would fill that seat started! Would it be Cowher? What about Gruden? Many ‘Fins fans were hopeful for a SuperBowl veteran coach to head up the coaching position. But they may have gotten something very close to what they were praying for.
Joe Philbin, Green Bay Packers offensive coach (who helped Green Bay get the win at last year’s SuperBowl) According to the Miami Dolphins website, Philbin joins Miami from the Green Bay Packers, where he originally joined the team on February 10, 2003 as assistant offensive line coach. He was promoted to tight ends/assistant offensive line on February 27, 2004 and was promoted by Head Coach Mike McCarthy to offensive line coach on January 17, 2006, and to offensive coordinator on January 15, 2007.
His flawless record helped lead Aaron Rodgers to a lot of his success. So what does this mean for Miami?? New coach doesn’t solve all their problems. But Philbin is confident that after the draft he will be able to get “great players”. Building a team isn’t always easy, but it definitely gives the Miami fans confident that if anyone can help with their quarterback situation in the city of sizzle, he may be just the ticket to success.
