Dolphins Steal Coach From Recent Super Bowl Staff
The Philadelphia Eagles have been losing coaches left and right lately, one of whom ended up with the Miami Dolphins on Wednesday.
The Dolphins announced that they are hiring former Eagles coach Joe Kasper to be their new safeties coach.

Kasper joins Miami after spending the last two years as Philadelphia's defensive quality control coach. Before that, he was a coach at Duke from 2018-2020.
After working for one of the best defensive units in the NFL last year, Kasper will try to have a similar impact on the Dolphins. Miami could use some help on that side of the ball after giving up the ninth-most points per game in the NFL, largely due to struggles in the secondary.
Kasper is just the latest coach to depart the Eagles' staff since their Super Bowl loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, following offensive coordinator Shane Steichen and defensive coordinator Jonathan Gannon out the door.
The Dolphins are hopeful that Kasper's previous success will rub off on them and help them reach the big game for the first time in nearly 40 years.
