Miami • Dan Marino is returning to the Miami Dolphins.
Marino was announced Sunday as a newly hired special adviser to Dolphins owner Stephen Ross, a move that has been expected for some time. Miami NBC affiliate WTVJ first reported that Marino would return to the team.
Marino was briefly with the Dolphins in 2004 as their senior vice president of football operations, resigning after less than a month citing family and other reasons. He spent the last decade primarily as an NFL analyst for CBS.
Marino was at Dolphins practice this past week, seen chatting on the field with coach Joe Philbin. The specifics of Marino’s new role are not yet known, with the team saying he will "work with the organization in a variety of different capacities."
