INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (January 15, 2016) – The Indianapolis Colts have signed Joe Philbin as their new offensive line coach, the team announced Friday afternoon.

Philbin spent the past three-plus years in Miami as head coach of the Dolphins before the team fired him on October 5, 2015 after a 1-3 start. Overall, Philbin compiled a 24-28 record in Miami.

Before his stint in South Beach, Philbin spent nine seasons on the Green Bay Packers coaching staff as offensive coordinator (2007-11), offensive line coach (2006), tight ends/assistant offensive line (2004-05), and assistant offensive line (2003). The Packers’ point total during Philbin’s tenure as offensive coordinator was third-best in the NFL, trailing only the Patriots and the Saints.
