Former Broncos running backs coach Eric Studesville interviewed for the Giants head coaching position Wednesday. He interviewed for a Dolphins staff position Thursday, Alex Marvez of the Sporting News reports.

It is uncertain if the staff position is the running backs spot, but the Dolphins have fired running backs coach Danny Barrett, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

Studesville has 17 years experience as a running backs coach, including three seasons with the Giants (2001-03). The Broncos fired him as their running backs coach after the 2017 season.

In 2010, Studesville was 1-3 as the Broncos’ interim head coach after McDaniels was fired. The Giants are not expected to hire him as their head coach.

    Someone had to take the fall for the Jay Ajayi fiasco?
    Fiasco? Miami got better after the trade. Congrats to Ajayi for playing well but the Dolphins moved on from a malcontent with questionable knees. He had more games under 25 yards than he had over 100 (probably 75 but I don’t feel like looking it up again) for Miami. A 4th round pick may be a problem for some fans but I doubt they could have gotten much more. A 3rd round pick would have been the highest but trade partners are a bit limited mid-season.

  2. Ajayi is not the athlete the Fins have back there now. This kid now catch, block, run, evade defenders. Ajayi could really just run you over… not versatile enough and too much attitude to warrant that one dementional style.
