Report: Dolphins interview Bill Lazor for offensive coordinator

AP

The Dolphins let General Manager Jeff Ireland go on Tuesday, but that doesn’t appear to be holding their search for a new offensive coordinator back.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Eagles quarterbacks coach Bill Lazor is in Miami on Wednesday to interview for the coordinator job. If so, it’s the first interview that the Dolphins have conducted since firing Mike Sherman on Monday.

Lazor’s first season with the Eagles ended with last Saturday’s 26-24 loss to the Saints. He spent the previous three years as the offensive coordinator at the University of Virginia and has previous NFL experience as an assistant in Seattle, Washington and Atlanta.

Packers quarterbacks coach Ben McAdoo has also been mentioned as a potential candidate to run the offensive show in Miami, although he’s reportedly interviewing for the Browns head coaching job. Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, believed to be one of the top candidates for the Cleveland job, has reportedly taken his name out of consideration for that job.

The Dolphins haven’t said anything about a Lazor interview, but announced Wednesday that they will start interviewing candidates for general manager on Friday.

  1. Not sure who wants to become a part of this dysfunctional organization. It’s a regular soap opera down there.

  2. I don’t know. Good talent already on the roster. Good young QB that shows potential. Owner that has shown that he’ll spend money (as well as stick with employees for longer than he should out of loyalty). Seems like an OK place to perform football duties.

    Agreed.

  4. Its actually a great position! The only Team shopping for a GM and OC that does not have a losing record (8-8). 3rd youngest roster, 4 Pro-Bowlers, 4th in Cap Money health ($32.8M under), an emerging QB and a Division that can be owned as the Patriots era will end for sure in the next 1-2 years, hopefully as soon as this weekend 😉

  5. Im sure the Eagles dont want this to happen, and would love to see 1 more year of development from all the coaches and players to progress the way they had in 1 year.

    From an outside perspective (mainly a Miami one), its a great hire. The guy learned Chips offense, and help groom a very young QB to have an Elite Performance (I wont say he is an elite QB yet, that takes years, but we can agree what he did was Elite TD/Int ratio and QBR)

  6. I’m just randomly throwing this out in the open, but what ever happened to Mike Mularkey? Maybe he failed in Jacksonville (or Jacksonville failed him) but he had success as Atlanta’s OC and he can’t get a coaching job for any position, anywhere.
