Joe Philbin Fired: Miami Dolphins head coach first to be canned in 2015

Andrew Innerarity-USA TODAY Sports

The Miami Dolphins have fired head coach Joe Philbin, according to multiple reports. This news means Philbin is the first coach to be fired during the 2015 NFL season. The firing comes one day after the Dolphins lost to the New York Jets in an NFL International Series game played in London.

This firing doesn't come as a surprise. Philbin has seemingly been on the hot seat for a while now, and the 1-3 Dolphins have looked pretty terrible to start this season. Taking over for Philbin as interim head coach is Miami tight ends coach Dan Campbell.

This news is relevant to the Philadelphia Eagles because the Birds are scheduled to play the Dolphins in a month at home on Nov. 15. Also coming to town will be former Eagles quarterback coach and current Dolphins offensive coordinator Bill Lazor.
