Reports indicated that it’s already a done deal, but it should become official on Friday, former Packers head coach Mike Sherman will join former Packers assistant Joe Philbin’s staff on the Miami Dolphins as offensive coordinator, according to Jason LaCanfora of the NFL Network.
Sherman was a candidate to become the head coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but that fell through when the Bucs made the hiring of former Rutgers head coach Greg Schiano official.
Instead, Sherman will head to Miami to join Philbin, who’s busy assembling his staff. It’s interesting to note that it was Sherman who hired Philbin as an assistant in Green Bay and was also his English teacher in high school.
