Henning Tops List for OC

Dan Henning - ESPNThe Florida Sun-Sentinels’ Omar Kelly and Ethan Skolnik are reporting that former 2 time NFL head coach Dan Henning tops the list for the vacant offensive coordinator position.

Many assumed the job would go to Sparano mentor Chris Palmer, but Sundays’ victory over the Packers has put Palmer out of availability for at least 2 weeks.  It is unlikely that Phins would want to wait that long.

Henning has been the HC at both Atlanta and San Diego and in 2006 was the OC for the Carolina Panthers.  Henning has worked with Bill Parcells as well from 98 to 2000 with the Jets.  Henning also worked under the Dolphins own Don Shula in 79 and 80.

In addition to Henning, both Paul Pasqualoni and Todd Bowles are expected to receive job offers officially on Tuesday.

Thanks to Matthew for the scoop.

    Can’t they find anybody better? He does not impress me as a great OC. So I guess another year of not scoring much.I am changing my prediction for next year if he becomes OC to:        2 -14

    I have to be honest with you…Im not thrilled all that much either.  I am ready for a high powered electric offense…Im done with this ball control thing and I think that is what Henning will do.
