Report: Dolphins interview Bill Lazor for offensive coordinator


The Dolphins let General Manager Jeff Ireland go on Tuesday, but that doesn’t appear to be holding their search for a new offensive coordinator back.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Eagles quarterbacks coach Bill Lazor is in Miami on Wednesday to interview for the coordinator job. If so, it’s the first interview that the Dolphins have conducted since firing Mike Sherman on Monday.

Lazor’s first season with the Eagles ended with last Saturday’s 26-24 loss to the Saints. He spent the previous three years as the offensive coordinator at the University of Virginia and has previous NFL experience as an assistant in Seattle, Washington and Atlanta.

Packers quarterbacks coach Ben McAdoo has also been mentioned as a potential candidate to run the offensive show in Miami, although he’s reportedly interviewing for the Browns head coaching job. Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, believed to be one of the top candidates for the Cleveland job, has reportedly taken his name out of consideration for that job.

The Dolphins haven’t said anything about a Lazor interview, but announced Wednesday that they will start interviewing candidates for general manager on Friday.
