The Dolphins added another coach to Adam Gase’s first staff on Friday afternoon.

The team announced that Daronte Jones has been named the team’s assistant defensive backs coach. He will work with Lou Anarumo, who moved back to the defensive backs role he occupied before being named the interim defensive coordinator when Kevin Coyle was dismissed during the regular season.

Jones spent the 2015 season as the defensive backs coach at the University of Wisconsin and served in the same role at the University of Hawaii from 2012 to 2014. He’s also coached in the CFL and at lower collegiate levels since entering coaching in 2001.

The Dolphins also announced that they have parted ways with Eric Stokes, who was the team’s senior personnel executive and assistant general manager for the last two years. Stokes accompanied Dennis Hickey from Tampa Bay to Miami when Hickey was named the General Manager in 2014, but Hickey was relieved of his duties with the team last month.

    If Gase can fix this mess of a team he truly is a genius…

    I see the Fins are already hard at work winning the off season before they spend another season in the AFCE basement.

    Sone fans are so clueless. Tannehill has been mediocre for 4 years and never been to the playoffs yet some defend him tirelessly. What incentive does Miami have to put a winning product on the field as long as their foolish fans keep drinking the same 4 year old kool-aid?

    Is Dawn Apponte still with the team or has she moved on to the Lions as reported. The team’s salary cap is a mess! Fire her now!
