The Dolphins are making another change to their coaching staff.

According to multiple reports, the team has parted ways with offensive line coach Matt Applebaum. Applebaum was hired last year to be part of Mike McDaniel’s first staff in Miami.

The Dolphins job was Applebaum’s first in the NFL since he spent the 2014 season as an offensive assistant with the Jaguars. He was the offensive line coach at Boston College before making the move to Miami.

Dan Roushar, who spent several seasons as the Saints offensive line coach before working with their tight ends the last two years, has already met with the Dolphins about the vacancy.

The Dolphins also fired defensive coordinator Josh Boyer at the end of the season. Vic Fangio is expected to take that role for the 2023 season.

  1. The Dolphins need to hire a great offensive line coach . Your offensive and defensive lines are the most important part of any winning football team.

  2. 10 offensive line coaches in 9 years across 4 different head coaching tegimes.

    Who in their right mind would want that job?

  3. Before firing Applebaum might want to give him some actual football players that can stay healthy. Hard to coach up players that are even at practice.

  4. The Dolphins are trending in the right way. Let’s hope this works out.

  5. Strange, I thought he did a decent job of making chicken salad out of the chicken dookie he had to work with. Dolphins o-line, rebuilding since 2002. Hopefully they can get a coach this time who will have demonstrated history of identifying and developing o-linemen.

  6. He was probably fed up with having to work with the often injured players the the GM kept sticking him with.
