Report: Bowles will not be back in Miami

Reshad Jones,Todd Bowles AP

Todd Bowles will not remain with the Dolphins organization in 2012.

New Dolphins coach Joe Philbin has decided not to retain Bowles, according to Omar Kelly of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. Bowles was the secondary coach (and interim head coach) in Miami last year, and was a finalist for the team’s head coaching job.

A favorite of management, it was believed that Miami’s front office supported Bowles getting the team’s defensive coordinator job. Philbin has discretion to hire his own staff, however, and will go in another direction.

Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy, who was also a finalist for the job, believed that his unwillingness to retain Bowles cost McCoy the head coaching job. That clearly wasn’t the case.

    I thought Bowles did a very good job as interim head coach.

    Maybe he’s Oakland’s mystery candidate?

    New Packers coach Joe Philbin has decided not to retain Bowles, according to Omar
    ——————————
    I think Mike MCarthy is still coaching the Packers.

    I think Bowles would have been a good choice for the job. Too bad, the Phins are going to lose that talent to another team and lose another piece of continuity.

    Well with there being little to nothing to report in the NFL these days one would think stories would be more accurate…so to help you out Joe Philbin is now coach of the Dolphins and will not be retaining Todd Bowles…rest easy Mike GB hasn’t given you a pink slip…

    Joe Philbin is simply displaying his dominance over Jeff Ireland and the rest of the organization. Simply put, he’s from a championship organization and knows what it takes, they don’t. I like it.

    Good. Frankly, I want every person that is left that is from Parcells regime let go as well. We were warned by Cowboys and Jets fans: He wouldn’t finish the job, leave in less than three years, and leave a bunch of his inept personnel to try to work out the shambles. Get rid of them all.

    And that means you Ireland.

    It’s also possible that this thing about McCoy and Bowles… isn’t even true.

    Wrong again, McCoy. Guess you just got beat out for the job fair and square after all…

    Leaving Bowles – especially if he’s good – presents a real threat to Philbin’s job security.

    You have to get rid of him and install your own guy. Your own guy won’t be trying to climb over you for authority over the team, or even be waiting in the wings in case you do poorly. Your own guy will owe you his shot.

    Look for Bowles to end up as the new D-Coordinator in Oakland for new head coach Dennis Allen.

    Uhhhh, Mr. Bowles, Jeff Fisher on line 1 for you!

  13. trubroncfan07 says: Jan 24, 2012 9:54 PM

    Hopefully Denver will target him to replace Allen.

    STOP! its a joke, Todd Bowles is not a qualified legitimant candidate right now. He is maybe a year a so away from being a good coordinator. The Rooney Rule hurts guys like Bowles, case and point Raheem Morris. Another quality position coach hurried before he was ready. Dennis Allen with the Raiders……………we know how this story will end. He is further away from being ready than Bowles.

  15. davikes says: Jan 24, 2012 10:24 PM

    Or maybe Bowles becomes the Bronco’s DC.

    Dennis Allen is white.

    Like to see Bowles as a DC somewhere…Better for him to get out of Miami…That isn’t going anywhere w/Ross and Ireland…Maybe Jimmy Buffet could get the job as the DC :)…

    Why are the GIANTS tagged in this post?

    Bowles was recommended by parcell. Any coach recommended by parcell should be avoided!
