Joe Philbin Makes His Return in Indianapolis, Not New York
If someone gave me the choice between Indianapolis and New York, I would laugh very heartily at the mere suggestion that this was being presented as a choice at all.
As such, it was suggested that former Green Bay Packers offensive coordinator and Miami Dolphins coach Joe Philbin was set to become the offensive coordinator of the New York Giants, earlier this week. Today it was announced that Philbin is now the
offensive coordinator offensive line coach of the Indianapolis Colts.
First of all, good for Philbin for getting himself a job.
We just have to wonder why he isn’t in New York.
The Giants hired former Packers quarterbacks coach Ben McAdoo as their new head coach this week. It was first reported that Philbin would be the offensive coordinator and then reported that he’d have another role. Perhaps assistant head coach.
Maybe McAdoo just couldn’t decide what to do with Philbin. Maybe the role reversal was too awkward, since Philbin used to be McAdoo’s boss in Green Bay. Maybe Philbin just likes second-rate midwestern cities.
Tough to say, but we’d sure be interested to know how that played out.
