Update: Make that 4. The Dolphins also added David Corrao formerly the LB coach of the University of Mississippi. He will be the Defensive Quality Control Coach. You can see all the coaching profiles here.
The Miami Dolphins, specifically Tony Sparano, has made quick work of his coaching staff, adding the three Dallas assistants as expected yesterday. A formal announcement has yet to be made, but all 3 are in S. Fl. and should have their contracts signed today.
Paul Pasqualoni will be the new Defensive Coordinator, Todd Bowles will be the Asst. HC/Def/Secondary, and Kacy Rodgers will be the Dline coach. The hiring of these three now leaves only 2 positions completely vacant and a 3rd possible opening. The Dolphins have yet to name an offensive coordinator, a TE coach, and possibly a head special team coach.
Although Dan Henning is on the short list of candidates for the OC position, it is still a possibility that NY Giants QB coach Chris Palmer could get the job after the Giants play in the Super Bowl.
