Dolphins News: Miami Hires Dan Henning to Hatch Offense

RealFootball365.comSenior Writer IFebruary 5, 2008

New Miami coach Tony Sparano has hired Dan Henning as the Dolphins' offensive coordinator.

Henning, 65, who has coached in the NFL for 28 years, was the Carolina Panthers' offensive coordinator from 2002 through 2006.

From 1998 to 2000 he worked with Bill Parcells and the New York Jets.  Henning has also worked with Joe Gibbs.

This hire is an indication that the Dolphins plan to run the ball and will probably try to incorporate a deep passing game.

Fantasy Football Impact:
As expected, running back Ronnie Brown will figure as a key player, as long as he's healthy.  Of course, he'll need help, which means that Jesse Chatman could be worth a late-round flier again. 

The passing game will remain a complete mystery until the Dolphins' quarterback is known.
