According to ESPN, tight-ends coach Dan Campbell will serve as interim head coach for the remainder of the season.
In case you're wondering, there's no word on the fate of much-maligned defensive coordinator Kevin
Philbin came to town in 2012 after rising through the ranks of the Green Bay Packers organization to become that team's offensive coordinator. After winning a Super Bowl with the yellow-and-green, Philbin was hired by Ross to turn around the Dolphins. That didn't go as planned. The team is 24-28 during Philbin's tenure and 4-8 over the past 12 games.
Given those high expectations and low early returns, it's no surprise that Philbin's seat went from warm to three-alarm fire to completely burned up in just four games. Unfortunately, what that means for the Fins for the rest of the season isn't clear. Campbell is a former player and has been coaching for only five years. In fact, in 2010 his job title was "coaching intern." Now, just five years later, he'll be running the show.
