The Dolphins have hired Eric Studesville as running backs coach/run-game coordinator, Jeff Legwold of ESPN reports.

The Broncos fired Studesville as assistant head coach/running backs coach after the season. He replaces Danny Barrett, who was fired by the Dolphins.

Studesville, 50, and Dolphins head coach Adam Gase previously worked together in Denver.

Studesville has 17 years experience as a running backs coach. He went 1-3 as the Broncos’ interim head coach in 2010 after Josh McDaniels was fired.

The Giants interviewed Studesville for their head coaching job before settling on Vikings offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur.

  1. Do the Dolphins have something against hiring Coaches……ANY Coaches……with winning records? The Ex. Team knee jerk reacts too much when a Coach hits the Open Market. This year they took ZERO time to see how other Teams would trim their staff & now look what we got. Already looking forward to 2019.

  2. Great hire for Miami! Studesville was loved in Denver and he produced some great RBs. Willis McGahee had a revival with him, undrafted CJ Anderson became a star, Devontae Booker was on track to have a breakout 2017 season before his injury, and he got the most out of average talent with Knowshon Moreno and Ronnie Hillman.

    Broncos have been blessed with back to back great RB coaches in Bobby Turner(1995-2009)and Eric Studesville(2010-2017). They will be missed.
