New Dolphins head coach Adam Gase appears ready to hire his defensive coordinator.

Bengals defensive backs coach Vance Joseph will become the Dolphins’ defensive coordinator as soon as the Bengals’ postseason is over, Alex Marvez of FOX Sports reports.

This will be Joseph’s first job as a defensive coordinator. He’s previously coached defensive backs in Houston and San Francisco, as well as at Bowling Green, Colorado and Wyoming. Joseph was an option quarterback at Colorado in the 1990s and had a brief NFL playing career as a defensive back with the Jets and Colts.

The Dolphins are also planning to hire Matt Burke as linebackers coach, Clint Hurtt as defensive line coach and Jerome Henderson as defensive backs coach.
