Bowles is a New Jersey native, who played cornerback in the NFL for eight seasons with mainly the Washington Redskins. He won Super Bowl XXII with the Redskins and finished his career with a total of 15 interceptions and seven fumble recoveries.
He will have little time to make a name for himself to be the next official head coach. The Dolphins need a big change to turn around their playoff woes in years past.
“I don’t think it’s about separating myself. I just think it’s just about winning football games. Believe me this is not about me. I don’t stand up here… I’m not trying to be Don Shula. I’m trying to win football games. We have guys in place to win football games. I just have to make sure I manage the game smartly.”
The interim coach has been with the Miami Dolphins since 2008, he worked with Tony Sparano in his time with the team. Over the past three years, the franchise has not gone the way as expected. With that Todd Bowles becomes the 9th coach in Dolphins’ history.
