Dolphins sign two coaches and a punter

I'm trying out a new font and size, since I received some suggestions to make the writing larger. I hope this helps.

The team's official site reports that Miami has signed Terry Shea to be the quarterbacks coach. They also signed Brad Ohrt to be the assistant strength and conditioning coach.

Shea comes to the team with 40 years of coaching experience between the collegiate and NFL levels. Last season, he was the quarterbacks coach for the Kansas City Chiefs. Recently, he has been tutoring Brady Quinn in preparation for the NFL Draft. Should Quinn be available when Miami makes its selection at number 9, the inside information that Shea can provide could prove invaluable.

This will be Ohrt's first NFL experience.

The team also signed P Ryan Flinn. Flinn, 26, played in the final two games of 2005 for the Green Bay Packers. In these two games, he punted 6 times for a 36.3 yard average with a long of 42 yards. This is purely a move to establish depth for camp. Donnie Jones has shown his ability and his spot on the team is secure.
