The Dolphins announced today that they have hired former Steelers Offensive Line Coach Jack Bicknell Jr. He was fired by the Steelers on January 3rd, and replaced by…well, you know.
The Dolphins previous offensive line coach, Jim Turner, was fired recently after being cast in a negative light in the Wells Report. Miami has promoted their assistant offensive line coach, and hired Bicknell to take over assistant duties.
Dolphins Head Coach Joe Philbin released the following statement about the hire:
“With the promotion of John Benton, along with the addition of Jack Bicknell Jr. we have two experienced football coaches who have an impressive history working with and developing quality offensive line units. They are both excellent teachers and are highly respected within the coaching community. Both coaches will be great assets to the Miami Dolphins organization.”
