Joe Philbin Dolphins: Miami Will Receive Needed Offensive Boost from New Coach

Michael MillSenior Analyst IIIJanuary 20, 2012

It appears that the search for a new head coach in the Miami area is over.

Adam Schefter tweeted about the position just moments ago, saying,"Filed to ESPN: Miami plans to hire Joe Philbin as its head coach."

The Miami Dolphins failed to land their first choice in coach Jeff Fisher. This is great news for Dolphins fans.

Philbin isn't one of the better known coordinators in the NFL, however he did coach for one of the best offensive teams in the league.

Philbin was the offensive coordinator for the Green Bay Packers since 2007.

Since his promotion to the position, the Packers have finished ranked in the top 10 every season in terms of points scored and yards gained.

The Dolphins have struggled on the offensive side of the ball since the wildcat began to dwindle away in recent years.

The last time Miami had a consistent offensive attack, Dan Marino was under center.

With Philbin in control, it could be just a matter of time before the fans in Miami once again get to see a potent offensive attack.

Green Bay head coach Mike McCarthy is the play-caller for the Green Bay Packers, but it is Philbin putting together the game plans every week.

There may not be a more talented offensive coach on the market. It's about time he gets the recognition he deserves.
