Joe Philbin NEW Head Coach of the Miami Dolphins

ESPN and Chris Mortensen are reporting Joe Philbin has been named the new Miami Dolphins Head Coach. It has been reported there was a divide between Ireland (who wanted McCoy) and Ross (who wanted Phiblin) and it appears Ross has pulled rank and got his man.

Jay Glazer, Michael Lombardi, and Adam Schefter are now reporting this as well. Jason LaCanfora is reporting the Fins will try and keep Todd Bowles as their defensive coordinator. LaCanfora is also reporting that McCoy didn't want Bowles as a defensive coordinator and Philbin is open to the idea. Which was probably the deciding factor in Philbin getting the job.

UPDATE: Armando Salguero is reporting the Dolphins talked with Joe Philbin about the possibility of bringing Matt Flynn to Miami this offseason.


  1. Very happy they chose Philbin over McCoy.

  2. I'm kind of surprised. I thought for sure it was going to be McCoy. Of course, I didn't know McCoy didn't want Bowles. I'm glad Miami will try to retain him. I think he has a bright future in coaching in this league.

  3. Philbin + Flynn will make me very happy

  4. I've seen this story play out before... Star offensive coordinator gets a shot to make it big. I pray Philbin (and hopefully Flynn) can change my negative outlook on the Dolphins. Only time can tell.
