The Green Bay Packers named Joe Philbin offensive coordinator on Jan. 24, 2018.
Philbin returns to Green Bay, where he coached for nine seasons before leaving to become the head coach of the Miami Dolphins (2012-15). Miami increased its win total in 2012 and 2013 under Philbin, one of only four teams in the NFL to improve its record in both of those seasons. In 2014, he helped QB Ryan Tannehill (4,045) and RB Lamar Miller (1,099) become the first duo in team history to throw for 4,000 yards and rush for 1,000 yards in the same season. Philbin entered the NFL coaching ranks with the Packers in 2003 as an assistant offensive line coach before adding tight ends to his duties in 2004-05 and then leading the offensive line in 2006. From 2007-11, Philbin was Green Bay’s offensive coordinator, directing a unit that ranked No. 3 in the NFL over that span in points per game (28.3), touchdowns (267), passing touchdowns (170) and total net yards per game (372.8). During that five-year period, the Packers ranked in the top 10 in the league in total yards and total points each season, and ranked No. 2 in the NFL in fewest giveaways over that span with 97. In 2011, he helped QB Aaron Rodgers record the best single-season passer rating in NFL history (122.5) as the Packers set team single-season records for total points (560), touchdowns (70), total yards (6,482) and net passing yards (4,924). For the past two seasons, Philbin served as the assistant head coach/offensive line for the Indianapolis Colts. Before entering the NFL coaching ranks, he coached at the collegiate level at the University of Iowa (1999-2002), Harvard (1997-98), Northeastern (1995-96), Ohio (1994), Allegheny College (1990-93), U.S. Merchant Marine Academy (1988-89) and Worcester Tech (1986-87). Philbin began his career as a graduate assistant at Tulane (1984-85).
