MIAMI (CBSMiami) – The key positions on the Miami Dolphins coaching staff have been filled.

Fins head coach Joe Philbin hired former Cincinnati Bengals defensive backs coach Kevin Coyle as the team’s new defensive coordinator and former Texas A&M head coach Mike Sherman as the team’s new offensive coordinator, according to Jason LaCanfora of the NFL Network.

Sherman has a history in the NFL, as he was the former head coach of the Green Bay Packers and the offensive coordinator for the Seattle Seahawks in 1999 and Houston Texans in 2007. Over time, Sherman’s team have thrown the football much more than run it.

Philbin was actually a student in a class taught by Sherman years ago.

But, Sherman is going to have to tailor his offense to a team without a franchise quarterback, at least at this point.

Peyton Manning remains the big fish in the sea, but he may never play again. Robert Griffin III is the man to get in the 2012 NFL Draft, but the Fins may not have the ammo to go get him.

Both Coyle and Sherman have decades of coaching experience and Coyle could transition the team to a 4-3 defense from the team’s current 3-4 defense.
