The move was expected after 2016 DC Vance Joseph left the Dolphins to take the head coaching job in Denver. This will be Burke’s first chance at coordinating a defense after eight years as a position coach. He joined the Dolphins last season after stints with the Cincinnati Bengals and the Detroit Lions.

Burke’s promotion is a bit surprising at first glance as the linebacking corps of the Dolphins was clearly the weak spot of the team’s defense in 2016. Burke was not given a lot of talent to work with, however, and reportedly is well respected within the organization. He plans to utilize a 4-3 defensive scheme along the lines of former Lions HC Jim Schwartz, who mentored Burke early in his career.
