Joe Philbin is the next head coach of the Miami Dolphins.
The Dolphins made the decision to hire Philbin as their next coach today, multiple media outlets reported late Friday afternoon.
Philbin had been the Packers’ offensive coordinator, and his personal story overshadowed football when his son died last week. After mourning his son during the week, Philbin was there with his team at Lambeau Field on Sunday.
Now Philbin takes over a Dolphins franchise that has major question marks, particularly at quarterback. But there’s no question that Philbin is a coach who knows how to implement a strong passing game.
