Behind the scenes look at the Dolphins coaching search

Omar Kelly on WQAM gave some behind the scenes info on how the Dolphins coaching search went down and some info that hasn't been widely reported.

-The Dolphins interviewed 6 coaches and 5 of the 6 coaches came to Miami and presented Ross and Ireland with a plan to turn the Dolphins around. Which is normal and standard around the league in job interviews of this nature. The one coach that didn't present anything; Jeff Fisher. The belief was Fisher was using Miami all along and never seriously considered them. He used the Fins to get more money out of the Rams.

-Stephen Ross called Mike McCarthy to talk to him about Joe Philbin and his duties in Green Bay. McCarthy told Ross that Philbin did call offensive plays. But the "critical" plays and "important" plays McCarthy pulled rank on Philbin and took over play calling at times. So, this notion that Philbin never called offensive plays is false.

  1. I'll be honest, the more I read about Philbin, the more I feel confident he will be a good coach. He seems to have it all together. I don't think he will be another Cam Cameron. There is a guy who should never have been given a head coaching job.

  2. I wonder if McCarthy isn't covering for Philbin here a bit. Anyway, Philbin deserves our support.
