CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) -- Mark Whipple has been hired as Miami's new offensive coordinator.

Whipple helped Ben Roethlisberger win his first Super Bowl and coached Massachusetts to a Division I-AA national championship in 1998.

Whipple is 51 and most recently was an offensive assistant coach with the Philadelphia Eagles, who were in this year's NFC championship game.

He accepted the job on Monday, and the hiring process was completed Tuesday morning.

Whipple replaces Patrick Nix, who was fired after two seasons with the Hurricanes. Miami was 7-6 this past season, falling in the Emerald Bowl to California.
