Miami has lost two of its defensive coaches to the college ranks.
Outside linebackers coach Jim Reid left the Dolphins to become the defensive coordinator at the University of Virginia.
Inside linebackers coach George Edwards left to become the defensive coordinator at the University of Florida.
Immediate speculation in the wake of these two losses has centered around former Virginia head coach Al Groh possibly joining the Dolphins as a linebacker coach. Groh has previously worked under Bill Parcells and is well-versed in the 3-4 defensive scheme.
In other coaching news, the Miami coaching staff has been selected to coach one of the teams in the Senior Bowl.
While this is partly the result of finishing with a poor record, the opportunity to see these college players up close in the Dolphins' system will give the coaching staff a leg up on scouting for the upcoming draft.
The Senior Bowl will take place on January 30.
