Dolphins fire defensive backs coach Lou Anarumo

The Dolphins continue to adjust their coaching staff, chipping away a bit at a time instead of making moves all at once.

According to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald, the Dolphins have decided to part ways with defensive backs coach Lou Anarumo.

He’s been with the team since 2012, and was interim defensive coordinator in 2015 when Kevin Coyle was fired.

He’s also the third assistant Adam Gase has pared from his staff since the offseason began, in addition to the reassignment of offensive coordinator Clyde Christensen to make room for new OC Dowell Loggains. They’ve also fired their running backs coach and defensive line coach.

  1. I think they are waiting for John Fox for DC who is waiting to see if he gets a head coaching interview. But I am in favor of changing out coaches on this team that gets too many penalties and seems to take plays off at critical times, both on offense and defense.

    Personally I think the offensive line coach is the key. Hopefully the new guy is the answer. But they have a bunch of high draft picks on the line which is never much good. Other teams mold lower paid, lower drafted guys into a better unit.

  2. Problem is the head coach and he is going through the usual routine of firing and assistant here and there to try to deflect the blame.

  3. Some of those moves have been head-scratchers. The running backs coach got canned for not making the backups play like Jay Ajayi. Ajayi had 90% of the team’s carries at the time of being traded. If Gase thought his remaining guys could be coached up to Ajayi’s level then he was kidding himself.

  4. The Miami Bears….. another stupid hire. Just analyze the Dowell Loggains position at OC. While I welcome a play-caller other than Gase doing it, this guy was responsible for the 32nd Offense. BTW- The Dolphins “improved” from 32 to 30 by Week 17. Seriously, you can’t make this stuff up. WTF! We are actually trying to get worse! Burke has to Go!!!

  5. The Dolphins need to go hire a great defensive coordinator instead of keeping guys who aren’t good at getting the most out of their defensive players.

  6. Gase needs to swallow his pride and hire a DC who has head coaching experience. Matt Burke has yet to design a scheme that can cover any TEs in this league. Plus Gase could use someone in his ear that isn’t afraid to tell him the truth once in a while, like stop calling those plays that never work and stop being so pass happy.

    =============================================

    I hear ya!

    The problem is that the new guy is part of the old system. He was the assistant ol coach with Miami two years ago. Least year the Bears hired him away as OL coach and thst didn’t work out and he got fired.

    Um… yeah, welcome back to Miami. Sheesh! 😦

    When are they going to RELEASE CUTLER THE $10 MILLION BUM!

    You do realize Cutler was on a one year deal and will be a free agent right?
