DAVIE, Fla. (AP) -Dan Henning was hired Monday as the Miami Dolphins' offensive coordinator, joining head coach Tony Sparano's staff more than a quarter-century after his first stint with the franchise.
The 65-year-old Henning has coached in the NFL for 28 years, most recently as offensive coordinator in Carolina from 2002-06.
He was Miami's quarterbacks and receivers coach in 1979 and 1980 under head coach Don Shula.
Henning is well-versed in the ways of new Miami football operations head Bill Parcells; they worked together when Parcells was head coach of the New York Jets.
Henning was head coach in Atlanta (1983-86) and San Diego (1989-91), plus has also spent time in the NFL with the Houston Oilers, Washington Redskins, Detroit Lions and Buffalo Bills.
