New Miami Dolphins' Head Coach Joe Philbin continues to fill out his coaching staff in South Florida. The club announced on Monday night that the Dolphins had hired George Edwards to be the team's new linebackers coach. Edwards served as the defensive coordinator of the Buffalo Bills for the past two years, before he was fired and replaced by Dave Wannstedt earlier this month. Before joining the Bills, Edwards had served as the linebackers coach in Miami for five years.
In addition to Edwards, the Dolphins also announced that Zac Taylor was hired as assistant quarterbacks coach. Taylor had been a graduate assistant and tight ends coach at Texas A&M under new offensive coordinator Mike Sherman. Along with Edwards and Taylor, the Dolphins also announced that they would retain tight ends coach Dan Campbell, strength coach Darren Krein, and special teams coordinator Darren Rizzi.
