The Dolphins are bringing back Dan Marino. The team announced Sunday that Marino has been hired to serve as a special adviser in the front office. The Hall of Famer played for the Dolphins from 1983-99.

"Dan is and will always be an important part of the Miami Dolphins and we are excited to get him involved in a more formal way," Dolphins owner Stephen Ross said in a statement. "Dan is unquestionably one of the greatest players in NFL history and his enthusiasm and passion for the Dolphins is inspiring to everyone here."

Marino worked for CBS Sports from 2002-13. The former NFL MVP will be working in the Dolphins front office for the second time. Marino also served a short stint as the team's senior vice president of football operations in 2004.

"I'm grateful for the opportunity to serve in this role," Marino said. "I have always considered myself a Dolphin for life and I look forward to supporting the organization anyway I can. Stephen Ross is a passionate guy who is committed to building a first-class, winning organization. I'm excited about the future of the team and where the organization is headed."

Marino's No. 13 is one of only three numbers that have been retired by the Dolphins, along with Larry Csonka's No. 39 and Bob Griese's No. 12.
