The Dolphins have promoted Brian Gaine to director of player personnel.
Gaine will work with GM Jeff Ireland, head coach Tony Sparano and the rest of the football department on scouting the NFL and college players. The three decision makers are familiar with each other from their time in the Cowboys' organization, where Gaine was the director of pro scouting, as well as spending the past three seasons as Miami's assistant director of player personnel.
"We are very pleased to promote Brian to this position," Ireland said in a statement. "I have worked with Brian in both Miami and Dallas and know that he is an outstanding talent evaluator and a respected, rising executive in this business. He has worked well with our pro and college personnel departments, understands our organizational philosophy and has a strong familiarity with the players on our roster. He possesses good knowledge of the division, other teams in the league and their rosters, as well as players in the collegiate ranks. These will be major assets in his new role with the Dolphins."
