Gary Kubiak, Lazor on Dolphins' radar
By James Walker
The Miami Dolphins are not wasting any time in an effort to fill their offensive coordinator vacancy.
According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Philadelphia Eagles quarterbacks coach Bill Lazor and former Houston Texans head coach Gary Kubiak are among the early candidates.
Lazor was in Miami on Wednesday interviewing with the Dolphins, Schefter reports. Lazor did wonders with Eagles quarterback Nick Foles, who started the season as a backup and led Philadelphia to the playoffs and an NFC East title. Miami needs someone to work closely with starting quarterback Ryan Tannehill, who is entering an important third season. Therefore, the interest makes sense.
Kubiak is one of the biggest names on the market for coordinators and was one of the NFL's top offensive minds during his stint with the Denver Broncos. But his up-and-down tenure as head coach with the Houston Texans came to an end this season. Kubiak most likely will get interest for several openings.
The Dolphins fired former offensive coordinator Mike Sherman on Monday. This year, Miami was 27th in total offense and 26th in scoring at 19.8 points per game.
