New Dolphins coach Joe Philbin said at his introductory press conference that he plans to let his offensive coordinator call the plays in Miami next year.
With Tom Clements expected to be promoted in Green Bay, it’s worth wondering who that coordinator will be.
Two names have come up thus far: Former Packers head coach Mike Sherman and Packers receivers coach Edgar Bennett. Sherman is one of the many folks that interviewed for the Bucs head coaching job. If he doesn’t land that gig, he would make a lot of sense in Miami.
Sherman hired Philbin in Green Bay and is one of Phiblin’s closest friends, according to Ben Volin of the Palm Beach Post. Sherman and Philbin also coached together at Tulane.
If Sherman does wind up back in the NFL, speculation will begin that his team could draft Texas A&M quarterback Ryan Tannehill. Sherman’s former player looks like the No. 3 quarterback prospect in this draft.
