FOXBORO -- The Miami Dolphins coaching staff is loaded with ties to New England. And that starts with coach Joe Philbin.

Philbin is a Springfield, Mass., native who went to Longmeadow High School and Worcester Academy. As he returns to New England to face the Patriots this weekend, there will be an even more important event taking place in the Boston area: the World Series.

On Wednesday's conference call, Philbin was asked if his staff members with ties to New England would be rooting for the Red Sox.

"I can't speak for everybody else," said Philbin, "but I know one person who is. And that's the guy on the phone."
