Meet Miami Dolphins coach Brian Flores’ coaching staff
The Miami Dolphins hired Brian Flores to be the team’s next head coach on Mon., Feb. 4. Here are the coaches that will make up his staff.
Miami Dolphins coach Brian Flores has hired Jim Caldwell as his assistant head coach and quarterbacks coach. Here’s what you need to know about Caldwell:
▪ Age: 64.
▪ Years coaching in NFL: 17.
▪ Previous stops (and titles): Detroit Lions (head coach, 2014-2017), Baltimore Ravens (offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach, 2012-2013), Indianapolis Colts (head coach, 2009-2011; quarterbacks coach/assistant head coach, 2002-2008), Tampa Bay Buccaneers (quarterbacks coach, 2001).
▪ Notable players coached: Peyton Manning, Matthew Stafford, Joe Flacco.
▪ Quick thoughts: Caldwell provides a veteran presence on this Dolphins staff. He’s a two-time head coach and served as Peyton Manning’s quarterbacks coach during three of his five MVP seasons (and was head coach for a fourth). The Dolphins are hoping Caldwell can help the team move in the right direction as they find a new starting quarterback.
▪ From Flores: “Jim is an incredible human being, a man of faith and a great football coach. His experience as a head coach will be invaluable for me. Jim is a great teacher, highly organized and somebody that I have a lot of respect for.”
