Philbin was fired by the Miami Dolphins midway through last season after three-plus years as head coach. He left with a 24–28 record.
Philbin began his 30-year coaching career as a graduate assistant at Tulane University in 1984. He took his first NFL job in 2003 with the Green Bay Packers, and was promoted to offensive coordinator in 2007. He was then hired by the Dolphins in 2012 before being dismissed last season.
The Colts extended head coach Chuck Pagano’s contract earlier in the month after an 8–8 finish in 2015.
