The Miami Herald reports that former Dolphins OL Vernon Carey has retired and is an assistant coach at Miami Northwestern High School.

Carey, 31, played eight NFL seasons, all with Miami, which drafted him in the first round of the 2004 draft, and 107-of-121 games in which he played over that span. He played both tackle and guard for the team but, after his contract expired following last season, the team chose not to re-sign him and no other teams apparently were interested.

According to Miami Northwestern head oach Stephen Field, Carey is the Bulls’ co-offensive line coach.
