Dolphins Head Coach Joe Philbin Gets One-Year Extension

Dolphins Head Coach Joe Philbin Gets One-Year Extension National Football League(NEW YORK) -- The Miami Dolphins front office is willing to give head coach Joe Philbin more time to take the team to the postseason as they've rewarded him with a one-year contract extension. Philbin was originally entering 2015 on the last year of his deal, making him a "lame duck" coach. With the new contract, the team seems to be standing behind their sometimes embattled head coach. Philbin came under fire for his handling of the Richie Incognito bullying scandal in 2013. "You don't get the best from someone when they're operating with a gun to their head," Dolphins owner Stephen Ross told reporters Monday. In the three years Philbin has been with the Dolphins, he's gone 23-25. The team has yet to finish above .500 under Philbin. With the signing of defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh and other free agency moves, the team is expected to compete for a playoff spot in 2015. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio.

Dolphins Hire Mike Tannenbaum as Head of Football Operations

Dolphins Hire Mike Tannenbaum as Head of Football Operations George Gojkovich/Getty Images (MIAMI, FL.) -- The Miami Dolphins have named Mike Tannenbaum the Executive Vice President of Football Operations. Tannenbaum, 45, spent six seasons with the New York Jets as their General Manager.  He initially joined the team in 1997 as Director of Player Contract Negotiations." "Football's in my blood. I spent two years away from it, and I missed it dearly," Tannenbaum said via a conference call. "I missed the competition. I missed getting in a foxhole with a bunch of people that are committed to a cause. At the end of the day, I was very comfortable with that's who I am." Tannenbaum was hired as a consultant last year by team owner Stephen Ross.  Simultaneously, Tannenbaum worked for Priority Sports as an agent for professional coaches, such as Seahawks defensive line coach Dan Quinn. Upon being hired for his new role, Tannenbaum will no longer represent coaches. Last season the Dolphins hired Dennis Hickey, a long time personnel expert, from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to be their General Manager.  Hickey was brought in to replace Jeff Ireland.  In an interesting power structure, Hickey will report to Tannenbaum, however Coach Joe Philbin will report directly to Ross. Tannenbaum said that Hickey will maintain final say over the team's draft but managing the team will be "a collaborative effort."  Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio.

Dolphins Head Coach Joe Philbin Returning to Team in 2015

Dolphins Head Coach Joe Philbin Returning to Team in 2015 National Football League(MIAMI GARDEN, Fla.) -- Despite another season that will have them sitting out of the playoffs, Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross says head coach Joe Philbin will return to the team next season. At 8-7, the Dolphins flirted with the playoffs but ultimately came up short in Philbin's third season as the team's head coach. "It's frustrating that we didn't make the playoffs. I feel as bad as everybody," Ross said. "But I think we're building something here, and I believe in the coach." Despite a mediocre season, Philbin has support from his players. "Coach Philbin is a big part of this franchise," Linebacker Cameron Wake said. "He's obviously part of the success of this team. That's great news and I'm looking forward to it." Since taking over the team, Philbin has a 23-24 record, not quite what they were hoping for when they hired him. The Dolphins haven't made it to the postseason since 2008 when Tony Sparano was the head coach. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio

Dolphins Shutout Chargers, 37-0

Dolphins Shutout Chargers, 37-0 Marc Serota/Getty Images(MIAMI GARDENS, Fla.) -- The Miami Dolphins forced four turnovers while Ryan Tannehill threw three touchdowns en route to a 37-0 trouncing of San Diego on Sunday. It was the eighth straight home win for Miami (5-3) over the Chargers (5-4), who have not won in South Florida since 1982. The win was an emotional one for Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin, whose father passed away on Friday, causing him to miss two days of practice. "I really have to give our assistant coaches and our players a ton of credit," said Philbin. "I kind of just showed up for the game." Miami's defense set the tone, forcing three interceptions and a fumble of Philip Rivers, while Tannehill racked up 288 yards in the win. Tannehill's three touchdown passes were to three different receivers while Lamar Miller also ran for a score in the Dolphins most lopsided win since 1995. "We're scratching the surface," Philbin said. "We certainly haven't put it all together yet." Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio

Tannehill Dislikes How Philbin Handled Quarterback Question

Tannehill Dislikes How Philbin Handled Quarterback Question Leon Halip/Getty Images(DAVIE, Fla.) -- Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill isn't a fan of the way his head coach didn't declare him the starter for Sunday's game against the Raiders. Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin was asked multiple times this week if Tannehill would be the starting quarterback on Sunday, but the third-year head coach declined to respond. "Obviously, it doesn't feel good," Tannehill said when talking about Philbin's lack of response. "It creates a bunch of stir (and) a bunch of distraction in the locker room -- mostly from the outside coming in and guys having to deal with the distraction of it. So it's not a good feeling." Tannehill has said he has since talked with Philbin and it appears the 26-year-old will start Sunday in London. This is Tannehill's third season with the Dolphins. During that time, he has made 35 starts going 16-19, while completing 59.1% of his passes. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio
