Plenty of New England ties for Joe Philbin

FOXBOROUGH — The ties to New England are unmistakable if not unbreakable for Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin. A native of Springfield, Philbin attended Worcester Academy and began his coaching career as an offensive line coach at Worcester Tech in 1986.

After leaving the area to work as offensive coordinator/line coach at Allegheny College in Pennsylvania from 1990-93, then offensive line coach at Ohio University in 1994, Philbin returned to New England.
