The Dolphins are 1-3 on the season.
“This was a tough decision for me to make knowing how tirelessly Joe worked in his four years here to make this a winning team,” owner Stephen Ross adi. “He is a man of the highest character and integrity that I developed a close personal relationship with. I am extremely disappointed with how we have started the season, but I feel confident that we can improve quickly with the talent we have on our roster.”READ MORE: Nor'easter Tosses Boats Ashore, Topples Press Box, Knocks Out Power To All Of Cohasset
Philbin went to Miami from Green Bay in 2012. Since then, the Dolphins are 24-28, failing to finish with a record better than .500 in any of the three full seasons with Philbin at the helm.

Tight ends coach Dan Campbell will likely serve as the interim head coach, according to Adam Schefter. As ESPN’s Field Yates noted, Campbell’s promotion marks the 21st new head coach in the AFC East since the Patriots hired Bill Belichick in 2000. In Campbell, Rex Ryan and Todd Bowles, all three teams now feature new head coaches this year.
