Mike Sherman To Be Named Offensive Coordinator For Miami Dolphins

Former Texas A&M head coach Mike Sherman is expected to land the Miami Dolphins offensive coordinator position.

According to a report by the Miami Herald, the Miami Dolphins are expected to name former Texas A&M head coach Mike Sherman as its offensive coordinator. Sherman had been a candidate for Tampa Bay's head coaching position that eventually went to former Rutgers head coach Greg Schiano.

Sherman has a relationship that goes way back with new Miami coach Joe Philbin. Sherman gave Philbin his first NFL job back in 2003 when he was the head coach of the Green Bay Packers. Sherman oversaw the Packers offense that was led by Bret Farve and went 57-39 in Green Bay. In four years with Texas A&M, Sherman was 25-25 and his Aggies team ranked seventh this season in total yards. Sherman also spent time as offensive coordinator in Seattle in 1999 and Houston in 2007.

As a first time head coach, Philbin is surrounding himself with a very experienced coaching staff in Mike Sherman and defensive coordinator Kevin Coyle.
