The Dolphins will keep former offensive coordinator Clyde Christensen after Dowell Loggains replaced him in that role. Christensen will stay on as the director of football and player development, according to the Miami Herald.

Christensen, 61, spent the past two years as the team’s offensive coordinator. He previously was a coordinator for one season in Tampa Bay and three years in Indianapolis.

The Dolphins made two other coaching moves, via the Herald, promoting Ben Johnson to wide receivers coach and moving receivers coach Shawn Jefferson to assistant head coach/offense.

Johnson previously served as the team’s assistant receivers coach. Jefferson spent the past two seasons coaching the team’s receivers.

  1. Excuse my ignorance. I have never heard of this role. I guess his job is to assess which players have improved and which ones have not. Do any other teams have this type of role?

  2. Absurd! Gase has to make room for his Bear’s Coach Buddies. Now they can take the 25th ranked Dolphins to 30th like the Chicago Offense did. I like how Christensen was the OC, but never called the plays? I want a job as Janitor at the Dolphins Facility in Davie. I will just sit in a Chair and talk about fixing and cleaning, but not actually do anything. Maybe that is how they will carve out a new Promotion for me. Ah…my Mediocre Dolphins. Are we done arguing with Landry’s Agent yet? Playing right into his hands in public. This whole Staff stinks. Went from the least Penalized Team for over 40 years to the 2nd most 2 years in row. Who is running the Asylum? That’s right… the BAD NEWS MIAMI BEARS
