Dolphins announce several coaching changes

During the 2012 season, Dolphins offensive coordinator Mike Sherman did double duty as quarterbacks coach.

Anyone who watched Hard Knocks last summer likely remembers that assistant quarterbacks coach Zac Taylor was also doing a lot of work with Ryan Tannehill and it seems the Dolphins noticed it as well. They seem to have liked what they saw since they have promoted Taylor to quarterbacks coach for the 2013 season. Taylor came to the Dolphins from Texas A&M, joining Sherman and Tannehill in making the leap from College Station to Miami.

Ben Johnson has been promoted from offensive assistant to assistant quarterbacks coach. The Dolphins also promoted Charlie Bullen from defensive assistant to assistant defensive line coach.

In addition to the promotions, The Dolphins also hired former Colts special teams coach Marwan Maalouf as their assistant special teams coach. Maalouf replaces Dave Fipp, who went to the Eagles to become their special teams coach, after leaving Indianapolis. Maalouf followed Chuck Pagano to Indianapolis after spending four years with the Ravens, but the team said it was a mutual decision to part ways after just one season.
