- The Miami Dolphins have continued their house cleaning as Offensive Coordinator Bill Lazor was relieved of his duties today. Zac Taylor has been promoted from quarterback coach to fill the void left by Lazor. The move comes one day after the Dolphins once again struggled to move the football when it mattered against their division rival from New York.
The Dolphins offense currently ranks in the bottom half for all major offensive categories and found themselves being one dimensional again against the Jets on Sunday. For the third time this season, Miami was held to under 10 yards rushing in the first half of a game.
In two short seasons with Lazor as offensive coordinator, the Dolphins showed glimpses of promise on offense but never developed any consistency. The fast paced, hurry-up offense that was expected when Lazor was brought in was non-existent and the team abandoned the run by halftime in numerous games over Lazor’s tenure.
Taylor will be asked to come in and help boost an offense that currently ranks 27th in points per game (20.5) and 26th in yards per game (335.9).
