Bio from the Dolphins  
YANKEE28 : 1/13/2020 2:59 pm : link
Jerry Schuplinski enters his seventh season as an NFL coach and first season with the Dolphins after being
named assistant quarterbacks coach on Feb. 8, 2019.

Schuplinski has been part of three Super Bowl winning teams (XLIX, LI and LIII) during his six seasons
(2013-18) as an NFL coach with New England. His teams won four AFC titles and advanced to the conference
championship in all six years.

Schuplinski spent the past three seasons (2016-18) in New England as the assistant quarterbacks coach,
working closely with Tom Brady. In 2018, the Patriots won Super Bowl LIII while finishing eighth in passing,
averaging 266.1 net passing yards per game. Brady was seventh in the NFL with 4,355 passing yards and 10th
with 29 passing touchdowns, earning his 14th Pro Bowl selection.

In 2017, Schuplinski helped Brady win the league’s Most Valuable Player award for the third time in
his career. Brady was the NFL’s leading passer, throwing for 4,577 yards. His 32 passing touchdowns
and 102.8 passer rating were both third in the league.

The Patriots led the NFL in total offense,
averaging 394.2 yards per game, and finished second in scoring, averaging 28.6 points per game.

In Schuplinski’s first season as assistant quarterbacks coach in 2016, the Patriots won Super Bowl LI. Brady
was named Super Bowl MVP after he passed for 466 yards and two touchdowns in a dramatic come-frombehind overtime victory against Atlanta. Patriots quarterbacks set an NFL record with 258 pass attempts to
start the season without an interception. The team threw just two interceptions all season, setting an NFL
record for best touchdown to interception ratio (16.0) in a single season. With Brady out for the first four
games of the season, Schuplinski worked with quarterbacks Jimmy Garoppolo and Jacoby Brissett, helping
the team go 3-1 in Brady’s absence.

Schuplinski got his start in the NFL in 2013 with the Patriots as a coaching assistant, a position he held for
three seasons (2013-15). During those three years, New England won Super Bowl XLIX and compiled a 36-12
(.750) regular-season record. The Patriots earned a first-round bye in the AFC playoffs in all three seasons.

Prior to New England, Schuplinski spent six seasons (2007-12) as the linebackers and special teams coach
at Case Western Reserve. During his tenure, Schuplinski mentored 22 University Athletic Association (NCAA
Division III) all-conference selections.
Schuplinski was head coach and athletics director at Trinity High School in Garfield Heights, Ohio from
2002-06.
He began his coaching career as a running backs and special teams coach at his alma mater, John
Carroll, from 2000-01.

Schuplinski played collegiately at John Carroll, where he was college teammates with former NFL
linebacker London Fletcher and Patriots director of player personnel Nick Caserio and offensive coordinator/
quarterbacks coach Josh McDaniels.

He graduated from the school with his bachelor’s degree in business
administration/marketing in 1999 and his master’s degree in business administration in 2001.

Schuplinski and his wife, Megan, have four daughters, Macy, Bryn, Jaxi and Josy. His last name is
pronounced shu-PLIN-skee.

But stating that he "helped Brady win the league’s Most Valuable Player award" in 2017 may be a bit of a stretch for an assistant QB coach of the GOAT deep in his career.

Why would you be worried about the new HC hiring the guys he wants to hire? I just don't understand, if he isn't hiring the names you are familiar with, is he already doing a bad job?

And I also dont udnerstand the mentality that Coach X coached on Team Y, therefore because of Team Y's results Coach X must suck. It is never as simple as that.

These are coaches that judge has seen operate. He knows what they can do and their personalities. I don't see this as doing favors for friends. He is bringing guys in that he trusts and knows. Big difference. If you are going to bring people in to instill your vision and beliefs, wouldn't you want to bring in known people instead of unknowns?

I will be interested to see how the rest of his staff goes and curious where he goes for offensive coordinator.

As far as basing anything off of the dolphins, well 1 year does not outweigh the years that judge has seen these coaches operate, especially the huge undertaking that these coaches took with miami

Because he's not even 40 years old and is picking an entire staff of young guys. I trust what he's doing, that's why I said I'm getting a little worried.

I understand your second argument too, and that's just it - it's never as simple as that. It's not black and white but the opposite also rings true. There's been many coaches that were on shitty teams and still...well, sucked. Especially with a young QB I want to see a proven guy in there.

Kudos to Mara Tisch for walking the walk. They hired a young guy no one ever heard of and said they were going to let him build his own staff. So far so good. Hopefully Judge gets a huge say in the players they sign as FAs and draft. Maybe the gift of desperation is what the Giants needed to finally move into the 21st century.

This article implies Schuplinski will soon be an OC somewhere ... so either JJ believes he’s a 1 year coach for DJ ... or the potential heir with the Giants if they hire Garrett and then he leaves in a year or 2. In any event, I like the way this is coming together but who will be the OL guru ???

This. Judge wants to institute a new system (one would think based on the Patriots's system) and so it's helpful to have some coaches who are familiar with the way things worked in Foxboro. Also, sure he must have a positive evaluation of their teaching abilities.

regarding his work with Jimmy G, Brissette, etc

Quote:
Young quarterbacks coming into the Patriots system are naturally going to struggle, but even when things are bad, Schuplinski is always there to offer his thoughts on how to make the situation better.

Schuplinski’s capacity for caring is not lost on his players.

“When I first stepped into the facility for rookie minicamp, he definitely took me under his wing and I think the process led right up until my last day there,” Brissett said. “I think what his role was and what he felt like he embraced was he was going to go through the learning curve with me. That was something I respected and I took to heart. I am sure he didn’t have to, but he went with me through my ups and downs and the learning process with the offense. I think that paid off a lot for me.”

Part of being a good coach is relating to players and Schuplinski is someone who the players have no problem talking to, even beyond the game of football. This is especially important for young players who are getting used to being in the NFL and are no longer in the college environment.

“Anything you had questions about, or if you were having a rough day even off the field that didn’t have to do with football he was there to talk about it and I really appreciated Jerry,” Garoppolo said. “I got to know his family and all his daughters and everything. They are just good people. We connected pretty immediately when we first met each other. It was something that did us well down the road.”

“He was a great mentor for me,” Brissett added. “That was on and off the field. He was someone I always leaned on and just talked about anything. We would talk about life, family — things away from football that made our relationship so special.”


Fits the "teachers" who are "good people first" requirement that Judge talked about.

has bellyached for years about his former assistant coaches poaching his staff when they got HC gigs. Wonder if BB enjoyed seeing JJ get the Giants job knowing he would poach some of Flores' staff. Schadenfreude.

Instead of wondering why Flores is letting some of his staff go to other jobs, maybe we should be wondering why they want to leave Flores and Miami. Maybe Flores is all that?

“[Schuplinski] was with me from day one,” Garoppolo, now the 49ers starting quarterback, told radio station WEEI in 2018. “Josh McDaniels was our quarterbacks coach, but Jerry was my quarterbacks coach at the time. He taught me all the ins and outs of the playbook… at the beginning you’re going into a system where a guy has been doing it for however many years Tom has been doing it with Josh, so they are kind of speaking a different language initially. You’re just trying to play catch-up when you are in there, and Jerry was kind of the guy. He knows all the stuff and he brings you up to speed.”

Patriots coaches with a layover in South Beach?



Yup, even a cursory review of resumes tells you both of the last hires were weaned in the Patriots system and ONLY spent one each each with the Dolphins.

So what do you think?
Would like 1 very experienced coach on staff (someone who was a coordinator or a HC or both to help him). That could be as a position coach, but someone with that experience. Otherwise have no problem with his approach.

Well, he was assistant qbs coach there 2016-2018 so I know JoeyG was there in 2016. Not sure who the backup was in 2017-18. It’s hard to evaluate backups who never play or who are not playing for some other team.

But what about ROSEN? What happened there? I’d be interested in knowing why he was benched never to be scene again. No player Left Behind didn’t apply to Rosen, or so it seems.

He did a great job with both Brissett and Garoppolo. Read link for more on that.

What's the fixation with Rosen? He looked terrible and has now flamed out in two different places. Maybe it's not the coaching that's the issue...

All assistant coaches (coordinators and position coaches) are considered "equal" by the NFL.

Technically, going from a position coach to coordinator is NOT a promotion, and assistant position to position coach isnt either. They're lateral moves.

Maybe Rosen was NOT "left behind". Maybe he's just not good enough, at least not at this point.

Drafted in the top 10 (4th QB taken), traded after just 1 season, and rode the bench for most of the season in a "throw away" season.

It's hard to criticize Rosen

He has had the two worst offensive lines in football during his first two seasons. Fitzpatrick is more mobile and the line seemed to play better with him at QB.

TheWalrus : 1/13/2020 10:10 pm : link
Interesting that we've hired a QB Coach without an OC. Hypothetically if the guy he wants is still coaching the following names would make the most sense:

Mike McDaniel (49ers Run Game Coordinator)
Mike LaFleur (49ers Pass Game Coordinator)
Todd Downing (Titans TE Coach)
Mike Kafka (Chiefs QB Coach)

Could also mean we are looking at Jim Caldwell and raiding Miami again for another coach.
