Dolphins Fire OC Chad O’Shea

The Dolphins have fired offensive coordinator Chad O’Shea, per Mike Garafolo of the NFL Network (Twitter link). The longtime assistant spent 10 years with the Patriots as the club’s WRs coach and joined former New England DC Brian Flores in South Beach when Flores became the ‘Fins head coach this year. 

However, Miami’s offense was ranked 27th in the league in 2019, and while an overall lack of talent is mostly to blame for that, Flores has elected to move in a different direction.

The Dolphins finished the 2019 season with the worst rushing offense in the NFL and just 25th in overall points scored. The front office is expected to overhaul the personnel in the coming months and, when those new players are in the mix, they’ll be led by a new OC.

The Dolphins’ new-look offense will likely include a first-round quarterback and then some. This offseason, the Dolphins will be armed with tons of cap space, plus the No. 5 overall pick, as they look to turn things around.

It was a challenging year for the Dolphins, but there were bright spots. Quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick kept the club’s spirits up during a five-win season and they closed out the year with three wins in the last five games, including Ws over the Eagles and Patriots.

In addition to firing O’Shea, the Dolphins have also parted ways with offensive line coach Dave DeGuglielmo.

        Gruden is a defensive coach? Better tell the Bengals that they screwed up having him as their offensive coordinator a few years ago

    How can you fire a guy after ownership traded anyone and everyone worth anything. to me they would get a hall pass.

    • dynamite drop in monty

      He probably took a dump on the owners car just to get fired from that circus

    Dolphins are not playing games with this rebuild. They want to to get sh** done right but quickly.

      yup they are rebuilding right . essentially they want a ol coach that can get players to block with less talent so that u don’t have to have top ol players to block. I agree with that . the oc is supose to call plays that are to the strengths of the off and he didn’t fully do that . I agree with moving in another direction. u see more of what a oc has when u have less talent on the team to mask flaws

    Geez you trade a good portion of the talent on that team and then have the nerve to blame the O coordinator? Really?

    He will be back in New England as OC when McDaniels leaves.
    Continuity at it’s finest
