When Joe Philbin was hired he brought in Mike Sherman, someone who had actually been a head coach. Sherman only lasted a couple of seasons and Philbin was left without a veteran coach. Adam Gase brought in his father-in-law, Joe Witt, who was a veteran coach but had no head coach experience. Brian Flores has brought in Jim Caldwell to help with the offensive side and could possibly land Dom Capers to aid on the defensive side. Both men have been head coaches and could provide some great intel for the young head coach.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day’s round-up below.
