08:07 AM ET 01.27 | Mike Sherman may land in the Sunshine State, after all. Dolphins coach Joe Philbin has moved quickly to ensure his top lieutenants will be longtime, accomplished coaches and also close allies. [Sherman] and Cincinnati defensive backs coach Kevin Coyle -- who possess a combined 69 years of experience -- are poised to be named the Dolphins' offensive and defensive coordinators, respectively, barring any unexpected last-minute issues, multiple sources said. Though nothing had been signed as of Thursday evening, Philbin wants to hire both. ... Philbin has longstanding relationships with both men. Not only did Sherman hire Philbin for his first NFL job (with Green Bay in 2003), but he also was Philbin's former English teacher.

If I hired my former English teacher, I'd get my knuckles rapped every day. Damn Sister Mary Holywater.

Good luck in Miami, you will need it.

Atleast the weather is good because the football team won't be anytime soon

January 27, 2012  08:39 AM ET

Lots of work to do on offense. The defense didn't look bad, what little I saw of them.

Sherman going thru the South, wonder how that will be accepted....

Good Morning Everyone, Miami has a good young team, these coaches should do well with Young Players! I like Matt Moore @ QB think he needs another running back and a little better protection,
He was player of the week this past season, so given a chance he should do well, they should play musical Quarterbacks!
