The Dolphins spoke to Eagles quarterbacks coach Bill Lazor about their vacant offensive coordinator position on Wednesday and a couple of Mike Shanahan proteges may be joining him on the interview list.
Multiple reports indicate that the Dolphins are interested in speaking to Kyle Shanahan, who is Mike Shanahan’s son in addition to having been his father’s offensive coordinator before their run with the Redskins came to an end last week. Peter Schrager of FOX Sports reports the Dolphins are “working out plans” to interview him this week.
Before moving to Washington with his dad, Shanahan spent two years as Gary Kubiak’s offensive coordinator in Houston which means he may wind up in competition with his former boss. Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Kubiak, who was a longtime member of the elder Shanahan’s offensive staff in Denver, is “high” on Miami’s radar for the offensive coordinator position. Kubiak, who was fired by the Texans during the regular season, has also interviewed for the head coaching job in Detroit.
Packers quarterbacks coach Ben McAdoo, who worked with Miami head coach Joe Philbin in Green Bay, has also been linked with the opening. He’s also interviewed for the Browns head coaching job and is scheduled to meet with the Giants about their offensive coordinator opening this weekend.
