Joe Philbin drawing interest from Colts for offensive line coach position

Former Miami Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin is getting some interest from the Indianapolis Colts for an offensive line coach position.

The Indianapolis Colts have a vacancy in their offensive line coach. The Miami Dolphins fired a former offensive line coach who had worked his way to offensive coordinator in the Green Bay Packers organization before becoming the Miami head coach. It seems the pairing makes sense.

According to Andrew Abramson of the Palm Beach Post, that is exactly what is happening as the Colts have reached out to Joe Philbin as a possible fill for their offensive line coach vacancy.

Philbin spent three-and-a-quarter seasons as the Dolphins head coach, during which time he tallied a 24-28 record. The Dolphins fired Philbin after Week 4 when the team started 1-3 on the year. He was replaced by Dan Campbell as the interim head coach for the remainder of the season, who led Miami to a 6-10 record on the season. The Dolphins hired former Chicago Bears offensive coordinator Adam Gase as their permanent head coach last week.

The Dolphins offensive line under Philbin struggled throughout his entire tenure, but the front office also did not address the talent level on the offensive line despite obvious weaknesses.
