The Miami Dolphins are heading to HBO as headliners of the latest edition of Hard Knocks. The show, which struggled to find a team willing to participate this year, debuts in August and will chronicle the Dolphins' training camp.

“On the 40th anniversary of the greatest season in NFL history--Don Shula’s perfect ’72 Dolphins-- it is perfectly fitting that Hard Knocks is heading to Miami to capture the start of a new era for one of the league’s proudest teams,” NFL Films president Steve Sabol said. “After Hard Knocks’ hiatus last summer, I know our team at NFL Films can’t wait to get back on the field.”

“We are excited that the premier company in sports filmmaking history, NFL Films, and HBO Sports have chosen the Miami Dolphins to appear on their award-winning series Hard Knocks,” Dolphins coach Joe Philbin said. “We are looking forward to connecting with our many fans across the country as the program chronicles our 2012 training camp. The series will highlight the outstanding men who comprise our team and represent our organization admirably, both on and off the field, as they compete for a coveted position on our roster.

“The Miami Dolphins have long been synonymous with success on the filed as evidenced by our five Super Bowl appearances and the only perfect season in NFL history That heritage serves as a constant reminder to our players and staff of the great legacy that has been left for us to uphold. Our team embraces that rich past and looks confidently to the future as we begin this journey back to the top of the NFL."

Among the stories HBO is expected to chronicle: Philbin taking over as a first-year head coach and the quarterback competition between Matt Moore, David Garrard and rookie Ryan Tannehill.

“All the decisions that have been made this offseason have had one guiding principle -- will it help our players and organization reach its full potential? This one is no different," Philbin said. "We are convinced that our affiliation with NFL Films and HBO will allow football fans everywhere an opportunity to comprehend the significant sacrifices and demands that our players endure each day along their journey in training camp as a Miami Dolphin. We eagerly await the opening of training camp on July 26 and the 2012 NFL regular season that lies ahead of us.”
