Coaching Moves

There has been a lot of speculation regarding the coaching staff that Cam Cameron would be assembling in Miami, and the first pieces of the puzzle were put into place on Wednesday. The most significant of the four moves announced was the official announcement of Dom Capers' contract extension.

No details were given on Capers' new deal, although reports have suggested it's a three-year deal. One thing we know for sure is he'll have a different title in 2007, that of defensive coordinator. It's essentially what he did last year under Nick Saban, but his title then was special assistant to the head coach.

Along with Capers, the Dolphins also extended the contract of assistant Keith Armstrong, who was given the new title of special teams coordinator.

Two new additions to the staff are former Dolphins running back Terry Robiskie as wide receivers coach and former Saints defensive back Brett Maxie as safeties coach.

Robiskie spent the last six years as an assistant in Cleveland, where he served in different capacities, including offensive coordinator and interim head coach. Robiskie also has coached with the Raiders and Redskins, where he also served as interim head coach at one point.

Robiskie spent three seasons working on the same Washington staff as Cameron from 1994-96.

As for Maxie, he has been an NFL assistant for nine seasons, spending time with Carolina, San Francisco and most recently Atlanta.

There has been no word on the rest of the Dolphins coaching staff, although we know Jason Garrett left the Senior Bowl on Wednesday to travel to Dallas to interview with the Cowboys, who are in the market for an offensive coordinator as well as a new head coach after Bill Parcells' retirement.
