The Miami Dolphins announced six coaching moves on Monday including the promotion of Josh Boyer to defensive coordinator.
Beyond that, the Dolphins also hired the following assistants:
- Chan Gailey as offensive coordinator
- Robby Brown as quarterbacks coach
- Austin Clark as outside linebackers coach
- Curt Kuntz as assistant defensive backs coach
- Steve Marshall as offensive line coach
Boyer, 42, began his coaching career as a graduate assistant at King’s College back in 2000. He took his first NFL coaching job with the Patriots in 2006 as a defensive assistant.
Boyer worked his way up to CBs coach before the Dolphins hired him as their defensive pass game coordinator/cornerbacks last season.
Gailey, 67, got his coaching start in the NFL with the Broncos as their TE coach in 1985. After five years with the Broncos, he left for head coaching positions in minor league football but returned to the NFL in 1994 as an assistant with the Steelers.
The Cowboys hired Gailey as their head coach in 1998 but he lasted just two seasons. He was the offensive coordinator for the Dolphins for two years before leaving to be the head coach at Georgia Tech until 2007.
After a year as the OC for the Chiefs, Gailey was hired by the Bills as head coach and remained in that position until 2012. He spent two years as OC for the Jets until 2016.
