The Miami Dolphins have offered head coach Joe Philbin a contract extension.
Philbin’s original contract was set to expire following the 2015 NFL Season.
The team has yet to give any details on Philbin’s new deal but it’s expected to be a 2-year extension.
Just because Philbin’s contract has been extended doesn’t necessarily mean that he’ll be sticking around in South Florida any longer than next season.READ MORE: 77-Year-Old Rafael Diaz Found Safe
Back in 2011 the Dolphins gave then-coach Tony Sparano a 2-year extension prior to the season. Sparano was fired that December after leading Miami to a 4-9 record after 13 games.
Earlier this week Dolphins owner Stephen Ross added former New York Jets General Manager Mike Tannenbaum to Miami’s front office, causing a stir due to the confusing nature of the new hierarchy in the team’s upper management.
Ross had already announced prior to the end of the 2014 season that Philbin would be returning in 2015 to finish out the final year of his contract, so the sudden extension is bound to raise some eyebrows.
