The losing season was their third in a row, the franchise’s longest such stretch since the 1960s. It has been 19 years since they reached the AFC championship game, 27 years since they reached the Super Bowl and 38 years since they won an NFL title.

Perhaps mindful of the long drought, former Miami coach Jimmy Johnson offered this tweet: “Joe Philbin new Dolphin coach..good luck!”

Philbin will now begin assembling a staff. Bowles might remain as a replacement for defensive coordinator Mike Nolan, who took the same job this week with the Atlanta Falcons.
