With the signing of four new coaches and the retention of one more, the Miami Dolphins and their new head coach Joe Philbin have completed their coaching staff for next season.
The most recent hirings consist of new assistant defensive backs coach Blue Adams, new defensive assistant Charlie Bullen, new offensive assistant Ben Johnson and new assistant offensive line coach Chris Mosley. The Dolphins also decided to retain running backs coach Jeff Nixon.
Mosley is the only one of these new hires with any NFL experience.
Philbin has really been active hiring his new coaching staff that will fit the system he wants to apply in Miami. Philbin is expected to implement the West Coast Offense and there has been some speculation about switching to a 4-3 defense.
The Dolphins' new staff consists of 20 personnel that will look to bring in a new system and better results to South Beach.
