Dan Campbell Named Dolphins' TE Coach
Campbell joined the Dolphins after 11 years of playing experience with the New York Giants (1999-2002), Dallas Cowboys (2003-05), Detroit Lions (2006-08) and most recently the Saints (2009). A third-round selection of the Giants in the 1999 NFL draft, the former tight end appeared in 114 games with 75 starts over the course of his career and caught 91 passes for 934 yards and 11 touchdowns.
Since the end of the season, Miami has turned over some of its core offensive coaching staff, with Brian Daboll replacing Dan Henning as offensive coordinator, Jeff Nixon taking over James Saxon as running backs coach and now Campbell replacing George DeLeone as tight ends coach. Dolphins coach Tony Sparano also added a new head strength and conditioning coach to replace Evan Marcus, bringing on former University of Miami defensive end Darren Krein.
