It took a year but the Dolphins finally have landed Jim Washburn. Last year the Dolphins requested permission to speak with Jim Washburn but the Lions denied it. This year the Dolphins not only were able to hire Jim Washburn but they also hired his son Jeremiah Washburn as well.
Jim Washburn is a long time defensive line coach who was with the Lions for Ndamukong Suh's best two seasons in Detroit. The Dolphins have a big investment in Suh and to get the most out of him bringing in one of his former coaches is a wise decision. In Miami Jim Washburn will be a senior defensive assistant coach assisting with the defensive line primarily. The Dolphins retained their defensive line coach from last year Terrell Williams. Jeremiah Washurn will be the assistant offensive line coach in Miami.
