Football is slightly different than other sports in that you typically don’t see a whole lot of trades and coach firings during the season. Again, not typically. But an exception has been made today as the Miami Dolphins has fired head coach Joe Philbin.
Miami had high hopes coming into this season and made some big signings last summer. But they have stumbled out of the gates to a 1-3 start and could easily be 0-4 instead.
The Miami Dolphins fired head coach Joe Philbin today and will name tight ends coach Dan Campbell as interim coach, a team source told the Sun Sentinel.
Entering this season, optimism was the highest in four years under Philbin after the team acquired star defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh, but the Dolphins got off to a disastrous 1-3 start. Philbin was 24-28 in his three-plus seasons as coach of the Dolphins, who haven’t finished above .500 since he became coach in 2012.
