Decision on Dolphins defensive coordinator coming today

New Dolphins interim head coach Dan Campbell offered no mandate for his staff upon his introduction yesterday, saying he had to process all the new responsibilities on his plate.

But he’s apparently not going to wait long to make whatever decision he makes.

According to Albert Breer of the NFL Network, a decision on the future of defensive coordinator Kevin Coyle is expected today.

Campbell has been given the green light to make whatever changes necessary by Dolphins executive Mike Tannenbaum, and it wouldn’t be a surprise to see Coyle punted.

The underperforming of a defense which was invested heavily in is one of the reasons Joe Philbin’s out of a job today, and it was widely wondered if Coyle would have been offered up if Philbin had stayed.
