The Miami Dolphins fired coach Joe Philbin on Monday (Oct. 5), following a 1-3 start to the season, reports ESPN.

Philbin has gone 24-28 in Miami since taking over in 2012.

"This was a tough decision for me to make knowing how tirelessly Joe worked in his four years here to make this a winning team," Dolphins owner Stephen Ross said in a statement. "He is a man of the highest character and integrity that I developed a close personal relationship with.

"I am extremely disappointed with how we have started the season, but I feel confident that we can improve quickly with the talent we have on our roster."

In the meantime, Dolphins tight ends coach Dan Campbell will take over as Miami's interim head coach for the remainder of the season.

"This is my sixth season with the Miami Dolphins, and this is the most talented roster we have had in those six years," Campbell said. "We have plenty of talent."
