Miami Dolphins Tales From The Deep


Bobby Monica joined the Miami Dolphins as a member of the team’s Equipment Staff in 1980. After four seasons as an assistant, he was named the head man and for the next nine years, established himself as one of the most popular and most memorable characters in the organization of all time. Stints in Jacksonville and Cleveland followed Monica’s tenure in Miami and currently, he serves as the Director of Equipment Operations for the XFL. In The Tank, Bobby recalls his early days in the Dolphins laundry room, his combined respect for and fear of Don Shula, his close friendship with Dan Marino, a cameo appearance on the hit TV Show Miami Vice, and of course, pranks he played on coaches and staff, most notably on his protégé and former Fish Tank guest, Tony Egues.
