The Dolphins are making another change to their offensive coaching staff.

The team announced that they have promoted Lemuel Jeanpierre from assistant offensive line coach to replace Steve Marshall as the team’s offensive line coach. The Dolphins are also set to hire a new offensive coordinator after Chan Gailey’s resignation earlier this month.

Jeanpierre just finished his first season on Brian Flores’ Miami staff. He spent a year with the Seahawks and two years with the Raiders prior to going to Miami.

Jeanpierre also spent six seasons playing for the Seahawks. He was part of the Super Bowl XLVII champions.

  1. The Dolphins offensive line was terrible in 2020, why would you promote anyone on the current staff?

    They should have replaced the OL coaches.

  2. Thankfully, the Dolphins haven’t offered Mortimer an O-Line coaching position. I am sure he would have done a much worse job with a new OC, 3 rookie linemen and learning how to use a computer to teach them over the internet with. ROFL!!! In fact, you’re not even a good fan.

    The O Line wasn’t bad considering they have three rookies, two free agents and some injuries. The line is the youngest in the NFL, so considering that, they did a fairly nice job and will get better as they all gel together.

  4. The Dolphins can put whoever they want as offensive line coach and it won’t make much difference. Miami has a major problem selecting quarterbacks and evaluating that position. Last year we had Justin Herbert on the clock and went with Tua? Tua may end up being a solid NFL quarterback but right now he’s a project that looks like he’s 2 years behind Herbert. Now after all the first round capitol we built up over 2 years Miami is considering trading it all for Watson. Well that would be nice to get a talent like Watson in Miami. But by the time we pay the price to get him we won’t be able to put a team around him. Had we drafted Herbert we’d be giving him tools to use instead of thinking about a reset. That third pick could be used on Alabama’s receiver. But no let’s spend it to get a Quaterback with a high price tag in picks and salary. Or roll with Tua and hope.

  5. My preference was Burrow > Herbert > Tua. Nothing’s changed for me, but I worry about Burrow’s injury. I would give Houston their pick back (#3) and Tua for Deshaun Watson in a Heartbeat. He’s top 5 QB and he’s only 25!! We’ll still get the other players.

  6. Oh, and I’d hire OC Eric Bieniemy as our OC / Assistant Head Coach whatever it takes to get him. Perfect!!

  7. Let’s pump the breaks on the Tua conversation. Cards got Hopkins to play with Murray and cle went out and got Landry and Beckham for Mayfield. Let him and the line get better. Let’s find a good OL coach that can maximize the talent they have and not make these other franchises leap past and make you look bad. And everyone saying they wanted Herbert are str8 lying. Only Mike Tannenbaum wanted Herbert over Tua and you can ride and die all you want with him.
