The Dolphins didn’t need long to hire an offensive line coach. They knew exactly who they wanted when the Bears released their coaches from their contracts.

Miami reunited with Jeremiah Washburn, hiring him a year after he left to go to Chicago, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

Washburn served as the assistant offensive line coach to Chris Foerster in Miami in 2016 before leaving for the promotion with the Bears. But Foerster was fired in the middle of the 2017 season after a video surfaced of him snorting cocaine in his office.

Senior offensive assistant Dave DeGuglielmo, hired when the Dolphins fired Foerster, will not return, via Salguero.

Washburn has spent 16 seasons coaching in the NFL, having worked for the Panthers, Lions and Ravens, too.

  1. The offensive line has been one of the major problems for years and it has been manned by first round draft picks. Other teams take scrubs and have a good O line. So it has to be poor coaching and it needs to be fixed before we are successful. I hope this guy is the answer.

  2. There is no other way to interpret these moves. They are friends from previous Coaching stints and “yes men” who don’t look to be in the waiting for the HC position. But if you look at the Teams & the O-lines for them that Washburn has coached, they aren’t that bad. The Ravens QB is not a mobile QB, but both Cam and Stafford are. I doubt Tannehill will be very mobile this year. He better have some protection. I know it’s not a sexy move, but O-line has to be priority #1, #2 & possibly #3 in the draft. I would also like to see the Dolphins go after a blocking full-back and a stud TE in free agency. Spread the offense and give Tannehill as many option on each play as possible. Take the pressure off of him to be “the guy” on every play. IF the offensive scheme does have Tannehill as “the guy” then Tannehill only has a limited ceiling & we are looking for the next franchise QB……..just FYI……..Tannehill was never really our franchise QB. Not even good Marketing could make that happen.
