Coach Mike McCarthy said he and new OC Joe Philbin are taking a "back to basics" approach and rebuilding the offensive playbook this offseason.
McCarthy also said it'll be Philbin running the show on offense during the week, handling meetings and all other OC duties. Philbin was the Packers' OC from 2007-2011, and the Packers won a Super Bowl in that time while the offense was top 10 in points and total yards each year. Aaron Rodgers is still theoretically in his prime. Keeping him healthy will obviously go a long way. Jan 24 - 12:41 PM

Packers hired ex-Colts OL coach Joe Philbin as offensive coordinator.

Mike Pettine is the defensive coordinator. Philbin, 56, was the Packers' offensive coordinator under coach Mike McCarthy from 2007-2011 before landing the Dolphins' head-coaching gig. He's spent the last two seasons as the Colts' OL coach after getting fired in Miami. McCarthy will likely continue to call the plays in Green Bay as Philbin helps in game-planning and with the offensive line.

ESPN's Rob Demovsky reports Colts assistant Joe Philbin is expected to join the Packers' coaching staff.

Philbin spent the last two seasons as the Colts' offensive line coach. His Packers role isn't yet defined, but he's expected to "take on many of the offensive coordinator duties." Green Bay is making several changes to their coaching staff after missing the playoffs. Philbin is an upgrade on Edgar Bennett, who was reassigned this week.

The Packers are expected to interview Colts assistant Joe Philbin about rejoining their staff.

Philbin is a top candidate for the Packers' offensive coordinator vacancy, though it's not clear if he'll interview for that job or a positional role. Green Bay also has interest in a potential reunion with ex-Giants coach Ben McAdoo.

ESPN's Rob Demovsky reports ex-Dolphins coach Joe Philbin is a top candidate for the Packers' offensive coordinator vacancy.

Green Bay removed Edgar Bennett from the job on Wednesday. The link makes sense considering Philbin spent five seasons coordinating Green Bay's offense before landing the lead job in Miami. Fired by the Dolphins in 2015, Philbin has coached the offensive line in Indianapolis the last two seasons.

Colts GM Ryan Grigson believes Joe Philbin can help make the offensive line "greater than its parts."

"Not only (has Philbin) coached good lines throughout his career, but he’s developed them," Grigson said. "A lot of times the way to greatness at that position is by having those five that just play together and have such great cohesion. That’s what we’re trying to achieve." Philbin did have some success as the assistant and then head offensive line coach in Green Bay, but the Dolphins consistently struggled up front during his tenure. Despite struggling to run the ball and protect the quarterback last season, the Colts appear content to head into 2016 with a similar cast of characters on the offensive line.

Colts hired Joe Philbin as offensive line coach.

Philbin was expected to join Giants HC Ben McAdoo's staff, but talks broke off with QBs coach Mike Sullivan likely getting promoted to offensive coordinator. He's spent most of his career as an OL coach and brings head-coach experience after getting fired from Miami earlier this year. Philbin should help turn around a Colts offensive line that struggled with pass protection in 2015.

The New York Daily News reports ex-Dolphins coach Joe Philbin is expected to be named the offensive coordinator for the Giants.

New Giants coach Ben McAdoo worked under Philbin in Green Bay, so the two likely have a close relationship. Philbin did not call the plays while he was a coordinator with the Packers, and that will likely continue under McAdoo in New York. Philbin was fired by the Dolphins after a 1-3 start this season.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports ex-Dolphins coach Joe Philbin is an offensive coordinator candidate with the Giants.

New Giants head coach Ben McAdoo coached Green Bay's quarterbacks when Philbin coordinated the Packers' offense under Mike McCarthy. Philbin and McAdoo are tight, and several reports indicate Philbin will be joining McAdoo's staff. We suspect McAdoo will continue to call the Giants' offensive plays.

The Colts are interested in ex-Dolphins coach Joe Philbin for their offensive line-coaching vacancy.

Before being promoted to the Packers' OC in 2007, which was in name-only since coach Mike McCarthy was still calling the plays, Philbin had coached offensive lines from 1986-2006. He should settle back into that gig somewhere.

According to the Miami Herald, former Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin wanted the team to draft Derek Carr in the first round to replace Ryan Tannehill in 2014.

Philbin was overruled by former GM Dennis Hickey, who took OT Ja'Waun James instead. According to beat reporter Armando Salguero, Tannehill was "starved for help and support" but never got any from Philbin. Whenever "things got sideways" during his tenure in Miami, Philbin would privately blame Tannehill for the team's shortcomings. Philbin even resented Tannehill's relationship with Dan Marino, who was brought in as a special advisor in 2014. Philbin's aloofness toward Tannehill certainly contributed to Miami's dysfunction last year. Tannehill is in a much better environment now with Adam Gase as the head coach.

Dolphins fired coach Joe Philbin.

TE coach Dan Campbell is expected to be named the interim head coach. The status of DC Kevin Coyle is still unclear, but he will likely be let go as well. Philbin went 24-28 in his three seasons and change as the Dolphins' head coach and never posted a winning record. His teams consistently underachieved, and he showed an alarming lack of control of the locker room during the "Bullygate" scandal. When looking at his tenure, it is shocking Philbin kept his job this long. It would be surprising if he lands another head coaching gig in the NFL.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Dolphins are preparing to fire coach Joe Philbin on Monday.

Schefter admits owner Stephen Ross could change his mind, but as of Sunday night the decision had been made. Schefter reports Dolphins TE coach Dan Campbell is the leading candidate to replace Philbin on an interim basis if the coach is fired. DC Kevin Coyle will likely be heading out the door as well.

The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero reports Dolphins owner Stephen Ross is "more inclined" to fire DC Kevin Coyle than coach Joe Philbin.

Philbin is the real issue in Miami, but the reality is the Dolphins have no one on the coaching staff worthy of promotion, even on an interim basis. Coyle is reportedly unpopular in the locker room, and firing him could at least buy Philbin some slack. Salguero reports Philbin does not believe any staff changes are necessary right now, but faced with losing his job or firing Coyle, he may change his tune. Ross and Philbin are scheduled to meet Monday afternoon.

Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio reported the Dolphins will decide coach Joe Philbin's future on Monday.

Miami lost in a listless performance in London Sunday morning. The game was punctuated by a disastrous, nine-play first-and-goal series in the fourth quarter in which the Dolphins did not attempt a single run despite five opportunities inside the five-yard line. With a bye up next, now is the perfect time to move on from Philbin, but the Dolphins have nobody on the current staff deserving of a promotion. The Dolphins could decide to shake up the assistant coach group before moving on from Philbin. DC Kevin Coyle is reportedly very unpopular in the locker room.
