Joe Philbin was arguably the best offensive coordinator in the league for the past four years. He became the Green Bay Packers' offensive coordinator in 2007, and the team has ranked in the top 10 in most offensive categories every year.
Philbin was offered the vacant position in Miami this offseason and took his first NFL head coaching job. The Dolphins aren't the ideal team for a new coach to start off with, but he has to start somewhere.
However, if Philbin has the same kind of success in Miami that he had in Green Bay, he could bring the Dolphins out of the league's cellar.
They promoted quarterbacks coach Tom Clements to Philbin's old position, but the Packers are feeling the loss of Philbin and will suffer offensively without him.
