DAVIE, Fla. (AP) - Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross says years of instability in the coaching and quarterback jobs are over, and the team's losing should end soon, too.
Speaking with reporters Monday, Ross says he was pleased with the work of first-year coach Joe Philbin and rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill, even though the Dolphins went 7-9 to finish below .500 for the fourth consecutive season.
Philbin was hired a year ago as a first-time head coach - and Miami's seventh coach in eight years - after Ross unsuccessfully courted Jim Harbaugh in 2011 and Jeff Fisher in early 2012. While Philbin wasn't the first choice, Ross said he was impressed by the coach's organizational skills and the way he followed through on the plan he set before the season.
