Time for yet another offensive coordinator
Dolphin Digest|February 2021
The Dolphins will have a new offensive coordinator again in 2021.

That became official Jan. 6 when the team announced that longtime NFL coach Chan Gailey was resigning after one season in his return to the organization.

Gailey, who had replaced Chad O’Shea, had previously served as Dolphins offensive coordinator in 2000-01.

His successor will become the fifth Dolphins offensive coordinator in as many seasons after Gailey and O’Shea followed Dowell Loggains (2018) and Clyde Christensen (2016-17).

As of Jan. 17, leading candidates reportedly included tight ends coach George Godsey, running backs coach Eric Studesville, Chargers quarterbacks coach Pep Hamilton, Steelers QB coach Matt Canada and San Francisco 49ers run game coordinator Mike McDaniel.

Gailey was one of two coaches who left the Dolphins shortly after the end of the 2020 season. The other was defensive line coach Marion Hobby, with the team announcing his departure as a mutual parting of the ways.

Senior Bowl time

For the first time since 2010, the Dolphins were selected to coach one of the two teams at the Senior Bowl, which will take place this year on Saturday, Jan. 30 at 2:30 p.m. ET at the new Hancock Whitney Stadium on the campus of the University of South Alabama.

Coaching staffs are invited to serve in the Senior Bowl based on the NFL draft order — without consideration to traded picks — but with the requirement that their staff be in place before arriving in Mobile, Alabama, site of the game.

The Dolphins have the third and 18th selections in the 2021 draft, but the third came from the Houston Texans in the trade involving tackle Laremy Tunsil. That means that every team that landed in the first 17 spots of the draft (prior to trades) declined the opportunity or couldn't accept because their coaching staff isn't finalized.
