The move that was expected following the Dolphins awful loss to the Jets on Sunday is official, as the team has fired coach Joe Philbin on Monday after a 1-3 start.
The South Florida Sun-Sentinel had earlier reported Philbin’s firing.
Philbin, 24-28 in Miami since taking over in 2012, became the first head coach in the NFL to lose his job this season.
The Dolphins entered this year with high expectations but looked mostly uninspired and disorganized during their current three-game losing streak.
Miami has been outscored 91-48 during that stretch.
Tight ends coach Dan Campbell will take over the team after their bye week.
