After Dolphins offensive coordinator Dan Henning left the team in January, he went into hiding.
He finally resurfaced this week to talk to Ben Volin of the Palm Beach Bost, and Henning had a lot of interesting things to say about his tenure in Miami. He wanted to make it clear that he wasn’t fired and the plan was for him to leave the team after the season, no matter what happened.
Henning also defended Chad Henne and believes Henne will be the team’s starter in 2011. Still, it was what Henning didn’t say that we found most interesting.
Asked about Brandon Marshall, “I’d rather not comment on that,” Henning said.
This was after a year that by Marshall’s standards was relatively calm. Henning’s words (or lack thereof) are a reminder that Marshall is a talent that will have to be managed carefully. And Henne knows it.
