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.
Sun, Oct 4, 2015 08:05:00 PM

NFL Network's Rand Getlin reports the Dolphins would consider "shaking up" the coaching staff if the team loses Week 4 in London.

"We've been going out there, and practicing our (tails) off every day, but as players, we're tired of being embarrassed," said one member of the Dolphins. "If we get beat in Europe, (players) are going to throw in the towel." It would not be the first time a team has quit on Joe Philbin, and the real question is how the perennially mediocre coach kept his job this offseason following three years of scandal and underachievement. The Dolphins would likely try to right the ship by axing unpopular DC Kevin Coyle before resorting to firing Philbin, but the real problem in the Miami coaching staff resides at the top.

The Miami Herald reports the Dolphins firing coach Joe Philbin in-season "remains a possibility."

This is pure speculation at this point, of course, but when given the chance, owner Stephen Ross failed to endorse Philbin as the Dolphins' coach for the remainder of 2015. Miami is off to a lousy 1-2 start, barely squeaking by the Redskins Week 1 before losing back-to-back games to the Jaguars and Bills. According to writer Barry Jackson, players are also starting to make some noise, complaining about the length and intensity of a recent practice. The Dolphins were believed to be privately flirting with now-Falcons coach Dan Quinn after last season.

Dolphins signed coach Joe Philbin to a one-year extension through 2016.

"You don't get the best from someone when operating with a gun to their head," was owner Stephen Ross' explanation for extending Philbin's deal. Turning 54 years old this July, Philbin's Dolphins teams have gone 7-9, 8-8, and 8-8 through three years on the job. You can read where Philbin finished in Patrick Daugherty's ranking of the NFL's head coaches at the link below.

The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero reports there is "nothing to see" in regards to a report the Dolphins could still fire coach Joe Philbin.

This comes on the heels of a passing-along of sorts from CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora, who had heard via sources that opposing teams were still not convinced Philbin's job was safe, and that new football czar Mike Tannenbaum may make a play for Seahawks DC Dan Quinn following the Super Bowl. As much as Dolphins fans may not like it, Philbin will be the team's head coach in 2015.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora passes along buzz that "some teams" think the Dolphins may still fire coach Joe Philbin and replace him with Seahawks DC Dan Quinn.

New Dolphins football czar Mike Tannenbaum was Quinn's agent before taking the job with Miami and had to pass Quinn off to a client at Priority Sports agency. The connection is there. Per La Canfora, opposing teams think there's a chance Tannenbaum will can Philbin in favor of Quinn if Quinn doesn't get a head-coaching job before the Super Bowl. We'd support this move from Miami.
