Philbin returns after death in his family

Joe Philbin is back with the Dolphins today, no doubt with a heavy heart.

The Dolphins coach who missed practice the past two days returned this morning after his father passed away last night. Paul E. Philbin was 93 years old.

The elder Mr. Philbin is survived by his wife Mary (coach's mom) among others.

Joe Philbin will coach the Dolphins on Sunday against the San Diego Chargers. I'm told that was his intent the whole time.

My heartfelt condolences to the Philbin family.
