4. Joe Philbin, Miami Dolphins (1st Season) All-Time HC Win/Loss: 0-0 Dolphins HC Win/Loss: 0-0 Greatest Achievement: Super Bowl XLV victory with Packers (offensive coordinator) Random Award: Potential for Longevity - This gentleman possesses the ability to maintain a long-term head coaching position with the franchise.

Anthony Fasano says Dolphins players are unhappy about ‘Hard Knocks’
