Dolphins Coaching Search: Miami Set To Hire Joe Philbin, According To Report

It appears the Dolphins have found their man.

FOX Sports Jay Glazer tweeted Friday evening that Miami has chosen Green Bay Packers offensive coordinator Joe Philbin as its new head coach and that a total, presumably money, has been agreed upon by the parties involved.

Philbin has been at the helm of Green Bay's offense since 2007 and has coached with the organization in some capacity since 2003. The 50-year old Springfield, Mass. native has made a number of other stops in his coaching career, including stints at Ohio, Northeaster, Harvard and Iowa in the college ranks.

Philbin's offense led the NFL in points, total yardage and passing yardage and quarterback Aaron Rodgers ranked among the League's elite, finishing with 4,643 yards, 45 touchdowns, six interceptions and a 122.5 passer rating. Philbin has worked with Rodgers every year that he's been the starter in Green Bay.

Philbin will leave the Midwest with a heavy heart, however, as the body of his son, Michael, was found dead in a Wisconsin river earlier this month.
