Philbin is lone AFC East coach not at Senior Bowl


The Miami Dolphins are the only team in the NFL currently without a general manager on staff, and they're reportedly the only team in the AFC East currently without a coach at the Senior Bowl.

According to Andrew Abramson of The Palm Beach Post, no members of the Dolphins' coaching staff are in attendance at the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala., though the Dolphins do have scouts at the event alongside assistant general manager Brian Gaine.

New York Jets coach Rex Ryan and Buffalo Bills coach Doug Marrone have spoken to media members over the past couple days at the practices, and New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick was spotted Tuesday.

However, Dolphins coach Joe Philbin isn't present despite his being there last year to scout potential early- to mid-round draft talent.

Philbin's absence wouldn't be a huge concern if Miami had a general manager on hand, or a general manager, at all.
