Dolphins owner Stephen Ross said last month that Philbin will return for the 2015 season.
Philbin is 23-25 in three seasons as Miami’s coach and has yet to make a playoff appearance with the team.
The Dolphins went 8-8 for the second consecutive season in 2014 and have missed the playoffs in each of the last six seasons.
According to the report, the announcement that former New York Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum is becoming the team’s new executive vice president of football operations has no impact on Philbin’s job status.
Tannnebaum will have no say on personnel as that responsibility continues to be in the hands of general manager Dennis Hickey.
“Coach Philbin will continue to report to Steve Ross, and everybody else will report to me,” Tannebaum said.
