Bills, Browns & Vikings Have Interviewed Joe Philbin


Rob Demovsky of ESPN reports that Packers interim HC Joe Philbin has interviewed with at least three teams including the Browns, Vikings and Bills in recent weeks for undisclosed positions.

A prior report mentioned that the Vikings were considering Philbin for their OL coaching job.

Philbin interviewed for the Packers’ head-coaching job before they hired Matt LaFleur.

Philbin, 57,┬ábegan his NFL coaching career with the Packers back in 2003 as their assistant offensive line coach and managed to work his way up to offensive coordinator before departing for the Dolphins’ head-coaching job in 2012.

After four seasons in Miami, the Dolphins fired Philbin and he later took a job with the Colts as their assistant head coach & offensive line coach. The Packers brought him back as their offensive coordinator last year and he was elevated to interim head coach after Mike McCarthy was fired.

During his three-plus years in Miami, Philbin led the Dolphins to a record of 24-28 (46.2 percent) and was never able to produce a winning record. The Packers went 2-2 during his four games as interim head coach.
