Job security ‘not at all’ a concern for Dolphins HC Joe Philbin
Entering the Miami Dolphins' Week 4 game against the New York Jets, head coach Joe Philbin was seemingly on the hot seat. Now at sitting at 1-3 after falling to the Jets in London, Philbin's heat has likely gotten even hotter.
To him, though, there's no concern about job security. Philbin met with owner Stephen Ross after the loss, which eased his concerns.
“No, not at all,” Philbin said, via James Walker of ESPN. “I’m worried about getting this team straightened out and fixed and getting our team ready to play the Tennessee Titans.”
Philbin isn't ready to hit the panic button on the season, but the time might come sooner rather than later.
“We still can't panic,” Philbin said. “It all seems like the walls are closing in on you. We all realize that. So we gotta look at things and be honest about where we are, what we're doing well and what we're not doing well.”
The Dolphins' season isn't over yet, but at 1-3 and in the AFC East with the New England Patriots, it doesn't look good. And with players seemingly losing confidence in the coaching staff, things don't look great in Miami.
