Dolphins interview Shanahan, Lazor for OC opening


The Miami Dolphins are wasting no time working to replace Mike Sherman as the team’s offensive coordinator. Both Kyle Shanahan, formerly the offensive coordinator for the Washington Redskins, and Bill Lazor, quarterbacks coach with the Philadelphia Eagles, have met with Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin about the position.

Shanahan was fired along with his dad, Mike Shanahan, by the Redskins after a hugely unsuccessful 2013 that saw a controversial benching of Robert Griffin III. He was the offensive coordinator with the Houston Texans before his four seasons with the Redskins.

Lazor just finished his first year as the quarterbacks coach for the Eagles. He was brought in by head coach Chip Kelly, and is credited with the development of Nick Foles. Prior to working for the Eagles, Lazor was the offensive coordinator for the University of Virginia.

According to Dolphins.com:

It is not yet known how many more candidates Philbin will visit with, but with the East-West Shrine Bowl and Senior Bowl on the immediate horizon, chances are he will try to make a decision very soon.

Miami was within one win of making the playoffs last season.
