DAVIE – The Dolphins
made a number of coaching moves Wednesday, among them was promoting Zac Taylor to quarterbacks coach from assistant quarterbacks coach, and naming Marwan Maalouf assistant special teams coach. In other moves the team promoted Charlie Bullen to defensive line coach from defensive line assistant and promoted Ben Johnson

Maalouf, who was Indianapolis’ special teams coordinator last season, joins a Dolphins special teams unit that was ranked fourth overall in the NFL
by Rick Gosselin, the NFL writer for the Dallas Morning News who annually crunches the numbers.
Before working for the Colts
, Maalouf spent four seasons as assistant special teams coach for Baltimore (2008-11), worked a season for Scouts, Inc., and served as Cleveland’s special teams quality control coach from 2004-06.
