Last year, the Oakland Raiders fired coach Dennis Allen after his team was embarrassed 38-14 in London by Philbin and the Dolphins. That’s when things get good.
“You can’t just go through the motions through the week and turn it on (Sunday)”, he said. It doesn’t work that way. I’m going to challenge these guys.
Since Don Shula ended his tenure in 1995 with the team, no coach has completed more than four full seasons with the Dolphins.
Miami Dolphins tight ends coach and now interim coach Dan Campbell against the Detroit Lions at Ford Field. Well firstly it deals a major blow to the Dolphins chances this season.
Campbell played at Texas A&M and was drafted in the third round of the 1999 NFL Draft by the New York Giants. Or they want to do their job. I was an emotional player. Although Campbell said he has the utmost respect for Philbin, he explained that he will do things much different now that he’s running the team. But I feel like I was dependable. I could be counted on and when my number was called I would make the play.
For forgetting to cover Bears tight end Martellus Bennett on a touchdown that might have been the difference between a win and a loss… And I used to take that personal. And it’s intense, and it’s people that are fighting to win. they want to get noticed or they want to do their job. It all seems like the walls are closing in on you, ‘ he continued. The next coach will be their eighth since 2004, and the second hired by Ross. That’s the whole point. Despite rumors of his demise immediately after the game, Philbin remained confident that he still would be the coach when Miami played the Titans in Tennessee on October 18. The Dolphins biggest problems is winning the battle at the line of scrimmage.
“Campbell has served as Miami’s tight ends coach for the past five seasons”. We need these guys to go after each other a little bit. They’d better hope he’s able to galvanize the troops and turn this season around or Ross and company will be looking for another head coach this offseason. Ross’ opinion obviously changed once the team returned stateside. We’ll start there (and) I think we’ll be in the right direction.
Now it appears he’s ready to make a few sort of decision. I’ve learned a lot from him, but this is where it is now. I see the same old, same old.
My goal is still to make the playoffs. “We have to change the culture”.
Philbin compiled a 24-28 in Miami since taking over in 2012.
The Dolphins are on course to miss the playoffs for the 13th time in the past 14 years, and the seventh season in a row.
Philbin replaced interim coach Todd Bowles in 2011 after Bowles stepped in following the firing of Tony Sparano. He has no previous head coaching experience.
After a disappointing showing in London, Miami head coach Joe Philbin has been shown the door.
