What do we know about Dan Campbell?

Where has he coached?

I think McAdoo got promoted from TE coach to OC with the NYG, that's the only comparable situation I can think of.

It's not even his leadership or whatever. He does not use the best weapons he has. It's horrific game planning. When the jets were running loose blitzing yesterday there were no misdirections or screens, nothing other than some play action that nobody bought since they never established the run to be a threat and Tannehill just dropping back and doing the duck and chuck.

As a Cameron owner maybe this will help.

As I've said before - Miami may be tailor-made for Shanahan - Ross should go get him now before someone else does it.

Done deal. I hope he gets another shot as OC somewhere. Dolphins... sorry guys, I see you as more of the same for a long painful time.

Well that has to be good for Miller owners, right? They can't possibly use him even less, can they?

Pretty sure he can't suck anymore than he does now.

:towelwave: Still have to wait one more game to see if Dan Campbell has a clue. I think he was mainly a blocking TE in his career.

Dan Campbell

39 years old; he only stopped playing 2009.

His whole coaching career is with the Dolphins:

- 2010 intern coach

- 2011-now TE coach. Came in under Sparano. At least we can say he's been though this before.

That's it.

Yikes.

I guess this means Croyle and Lazor are gone too? Or no?

Rumor is Coyle is out. No word on Lazor.

Too bad Ross can't fire himself.

Look, if Campbell played as much madden as other players do, he will likely be more aggressive and innovative that the coaches we have now.

Season is already lost. To quote my friend Hillary, at this point what difference does it make?

There will be a whole new staff in 2016.

@MikeTanier That Tannehill contract is clearly a Tannenbaum deal. Virtually identical to one he did with Sanchez. Suh probably him as well

Oh yeah, that's another thing. Why in the world does anyone hire Tannenbaum?

Edit: Pretty good piece from Tanier on the whole mess, and how there's way more housecleaning to be done.

There is a chance Gruden can be a candidate to go to 2 Miami gigs in the same season! Golden doesn't have long.

I recall Dan Campbell being a Parcells guy when he was in the league. Pretty sure he was also a blocking specialist to Shockey/Witten. He looked very raw at his presser but I can't help think that maybe Parcells put had something to do with this. At the very least he's not a frail looking old dood or one of the coordinators that are clearly adding to the problems. Not saying being physically imposing is the end all be all but I feel like Suh has been able to step (lol) all over whatever coaches he wants to. He's clearly a pretty unstable individual (said he's not emotional yesterday... Sure buddy, way to kick Fitzpatrick in the head not being emotional) and may respond better to someone his physical equivilant.

This thread is confusing with people stating that it's Ross.

It is Dan Campbell as interim head coach

Campbell has served as Miami’s tight ends coach for the past five seasons.

The Miami Dolphins have named Dan Campbell interim head coach, the team announced today.

Campbell has served as Miami’s tight ends coach for the past five seasons. He originally joined the Dolphins prior to the 2010 season as a coaching intern/offense.

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 New Orleans Saints (2009). A third-round selection of the Giants in the 1999 NFL draft, the former tight end appeared in a total of 114 games with 75 starts and caught 91 passes for 934 yards and 11 touchdowns.

Campbell attended Texas A&M where he was a four-year letterwinner and agricultural development major.

He was very good for the packers. I believe he was the OC the yr they won the Super Bowl? Isn't that why he was hired in the first place?

We've seen HCs that fail,because they are good coordinators, not good head coaches. Let him do what he does best and let someone else worry about everything else

He's clearly a pretty unstable individual (said he's not emotional yesterday...

He's certainly a Parcells disciple.

Years ago Parcells had Maurice Carthon as running game coordinator and Sean Payton as passing game coordinator.

IIRC he met back up with both of them later in his career but...unsure about Carthon's time in DET.

He was a meh player but tough. Played FB, Hback, TE. A coach's boy for sure. Probably signed more for hustle and work ethic around others than ability.

I would take a real strong guess this is I'm fed up, who is a no-nonsense guy? OK I want to chat with him. Like him, hired.

I doubt he has the job in 2016.

Parcells always used the phrase "too cute" and myself and others use it all the time. Best guess, Campbell will remove the Fins plays that are too cute. IDK if you guys can recall but Payton was under Fassell with the Gmen, not Parcells. He was a top OC and also a bad one....when he got too cute. Obviously he went on to figure out what plays were a bit much and which weren't.

Assuming anything like Carthon, anything like Parcells, he will have no fear in pulling those that don't produce.

Today the 2nd big story is that the PS CBs have been intercepting Tannehill often and got too happy about it. Tannehill got on them and...coach asked them to tone it down. I would figure Campbell says "shush" to them but keep at it and tells Tannehill 'tough, get it done.'

Philbin didn't shut down drama like this. Campbell surely will.

Suh will probably have a problem if he acts out. I think that incident didn't bode well for Philbin too.

I really think he's a restore order guy.

Interim coaches don't instill new Os and Ds and have this big elaborate change people are maybe hoping for.

Paging Mr. Turner ... Mr. Norval Turner ...

ETA: Actually, that's an interesting discussion. I think you have to put Turner and Wade Phillips at the top of that list, narrowly beating out Ray Rhodes and Gregg Williams. Not sure who else would make it, though Jay Gruden and Gus Bradley may soon get their chances :-)

ESPN

DAVIE, Fla. – New Miami Dolphins interim head coach Dan Campbell exuded intensity and energy Monday afternoon. These are two qualities the Dolphins (1-3) severely lacked in their first four games.

“We have enough to win,” Campbell said. “We have to change the culture. I have to change the culture, and that’s what I intend to do.”

Campbell intends to turn around the Dolphins by holding tougher, more intense practices and coaching more aggressively on game days. Although Campbell said he has the utmost respect for former head coach Joe Philbin, Campbell explained that he will do things much differently and there wasn’t enough competition during Miami’s preparation.

The Dolphins have looked mostly listless and uninspired on the field this season. Philbin, who was 24-28 in four seasons, also lost eight of his last 12 games dating to last season. Players were increasingly growing unhappy with the results.

“I think it was something that needed to be done,” Dolphins owner Stephen Ross said on the conference call with the Miami media. “I believe in our roster and I believe in this football team. ... It’s been four games. I haven’t seen a lot of improvement. I see the same old, same old.”

Ross added that Campbell is “certainly” a candidate for Miami's permanent head coaching job in 2016. This will be a 12-game tryout, which is a good sample size for Campbell. The former tight end played a decade in the NFL and said his biggest strength is understanding people and getting the best out of his players.

“I feel like I relate to players,” Ross said. “I feel like I’m someone who understands them."

Just from watching and listening to him on Hard Knocks, you can tell he's very far from super intelligent. HTF do guys like him get jobs when there must be a ton of super smart and dedicated people who would love to have the gig. Is it simply because of relationships and the good ol boy network?

USAToday-Considering the Dolphins have a bye week followed by games against two less-talented teams – at Tennessee, then against Houston at home – there’s a decent chance they’ll get back to .500 before their next division game on a short week Oct. 29 at New England.

From a fantasy standpoint, I like what the new intirim HC Dan Campbell is preaching. Says that the team needs to get pushed, and insinuated that Philbin was too soft, too conservative in his practices. Was not a good sign when the practice squad was picking Tannehill's passes, and some of the regulars were joking about them "enjoying their practice squad money". But the bottom line is the Phins shelling out over $60 million guaranteed for Ndamukong Suh and getting no pressure on the QB. Campbell for his part says he wants to be more aggressive than the previous regime. So I remain hopeful that my Dolphins DST I had such high hopes for will begin to pay off after the bye week.

That's probably a good thing. Hell, Parcells can coach the team from his living room and Campbell would reap the benefits....as would Lamar Miller.
