The Dolphins searched for an offensive coordinator. Ultimately, they found two. The Dolphins are set to split the job between running backs coach Eric Studesville and quarterbacks coach George Godsey, as Ian Rapoport of NFL.com tweets.
With Chan Gailey out of the picture, the Dolphins are looking at their third offensive coordinator setup in three years. They considered upwards of six candidates in total, including Steelers quarterbacks coach Matt Canada, Chargers QBs coach Pep Hamilton, and 49ers run-game coordinator Mike McDaniel. Instead of going out-of-house, the Dolphins have opted to keep things consistent with Studesville and Godsey.
Most of those candidates would have been first-time NFL OCs, but Godsey comes with previous experience, having served as Bill O’Brien‘s OC in Houston from 2015-16. He’s been a position coach since, including a turn as the Dolphins’ tight ends coach. Studesville — serving as a pro OC for the first time — has 24 seasons of NFL offensive experience under his belt.
