Eagles assistant Lazor hired as Miami coordinator
Question of the Day
“Right now my future and his future are together,” Lazor said. “I’m in it with him. I choose to compete and make an impact and to be a difference-maker, and that’s why I’m here.”
The Dolphins also had a second-year quarterback in Ryan Tannehill. Foles threw 27 touchdown passes and two interceptions, while Tannehill threw 24 and 17.
Lazor said he studied Tannehill on video before accepting the job.
“I’m really excited to work with him,” Lazor said. “I see a lot of ability.”
The Dolphins ranked 27th in the NFL in yards, finished 8-8 and missed the playoffs for the fifth consecutive year. The Eagles ranked second in total yards and offensive points, went 10-6 and won the NFC East.
“A lot of the things that led to that are going to have a great impact in what I believe works going forward,” Lazor said.
Lazor was offensive coordinator at the University of Virginia from 2010 to 2012, and he has also worked for the Washington Redskins, Seattle Seahawks and Atlanta Falcons. He replaces Mike Sherman, who was fired last week after two seasons with Miami and was Tannehill’s head coach at Texas A&M.;
The Dolphins are also searching for a general manager to replace Jeff Ireland, who departed last week after six seasons. On Wednesday they announced the completion of an interview with Brian Xanders, senior personnel executive with the Detroit Lions.
Five candidates interviewed earlier.
Considered along with Lazor for the offensive coordinator job were Green Bay Packers quarterbacks coach Ben McAdoo, who was hired Tuesday as offensive coordinator of the New York Giants, and former Washington Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan.
“Bill is an accomplished coach and will be a great addition to our coaching staff,” Philbin said in a statement. “Bill has been instrumental in helping players reach their full potential, as players and people, at both the college and professional level. He also has a proven track record of success working with a wide variety of offenses.”
