Dolphins add Tiquan Underwood to coaching staff

The Dolphins are taking on plenty of ex-Patriots, including one who was expatriated the night before the Super Bowl.

According to Field Yates of ESPN, the Dolphins are hiring Tiquan Underwood as an assistant under offensive coordinator Chad O’Shea.

Underwood played for four NFL teams, but is best known for two things — his distinctive high-top fade haircut (which we’re hoping he still has because it was magical), and for being cut by the Patriots the night before Super Bowl XLVI.

He also had stints with the Jaguars, Buccaneers, and Panthers. He had 63 catches for 1,006 yards and six touchdowns in five seasons.

  1. Although he had a limited skill set, he was always a hard worker for the Bucs and as a fan, I appreciated his all -out effort.

    Good luck to him in his coaching endeavors.

  2. Coaching is a cerebral game. Just because a coach failed or was underwhelming as a player, doesn’t mean he can’t coach.

  3. So Malcolm Butler wasn’t the first…but at least Tiquan found out before kick-off. I know MB wasn’t released, but essentially he was.

  4. Good for Tiquan. If the minority pool of candidates is to ever grow, it will have to include more former players.
