The Miami Dolphins had one of the worst passing defenses in the NFL last year.
So, obviously, something had to be done. And, that something was firing defensive coordinator Paul Pasqualoni and hiring Mike Nolan as their new defensive coordinator.
Nolan is a great coach that can make a huge impact on the Dolphins defense. He has had a great career so far with 25+ years of coaching experience, and that includes the top defense in the NFL with the 1993 New York Giants. Here is a quick look at what Nolan has done with defenses in his career:
Nolan has been a defensive coordinator for eleven years.
Eight of those eleven years, Nolan's defense has been in the better half of the NFL in points allowed. Six of the years, it has been in the top 10. So, that means Nolan has had a top 10 defense in the NFL for the majority of his career. That is a very good sign for Dolphins fans.
Mike Nolan is the best acquisition the Miami Dolphins made this offseason. Better than Brandon Marshall. Defense wins championships, and while great receivers helps a lot, they still don't help as much as a great defense.
