After the hiring of Dolphins linebackers coach Mark Duffner, there was one remaining slot to fill on the Miami coaching staff, and the Fins have reportedly filled that position. According to Alex Marvez of FOX Sports, the Miami Dolphins have hired former Houston Texans offensive line coach John Benton to become their assistant offensive line coach.

Benton will assist current offensive line coach Jim Turner. Benton spent the past eight seasons as the offensive line coach in Houston. He also spent time as the O-line coach in St. Louis in 2005, and as an assistant offensive line coach with the Rams in 2004.
