Gary Kubiak High on Dolphins Radar For Offensive Coordinator Position


Former Houston Texans head coach Gary Kubiak is high on the list of candidates for the offensive coordinator vacancy in Miami, per Adam Schefter. The Miami Dolphins are in a little bit of a messy situation at this point, since they just fired their general manager. Head Coach Joe Philbin seems to be safe, but the new general manager may want to bring in their own head coach to call the shots. Joe Philbin could be on a short leash.

Philbin needs to get this offense going. That will be his priority for next season. They already have fired Mike Sherman as the offensive coordinator and Kubiak could be the guy to take over the new role.

Kubiak’s would need to get Ryan Tannehill and Lamar Miller to reach their full potential. Kubiak has not been a very creative play caller in the past and he relies on the running game to control the offense. He relied heavily on Arian Foster and Ben Tate with the Texans offense. He got a lot of production from Matt Schaub as his starting quarterback during his tenure except in his final season as the Texans head coach. That is when all things all starting going down hill.

    It makes sense in Mr Ross’s world. He fired Ireland but kept Philbin, who has more liability in this sorry season as anyone. But Ross likes Uncle Joe, and Dawn Aponte who will probably be the new GM,,,Does that make good sense now? Sorry, I just have to laugh at Ross who is currently drowning in his own ignorance of NFL football. Ross has no clue of what to do next, so my guess is Aponte will rule Dolphin football being the first female to so capture a GM job. She will be on every talk TV show on the air waves and Ross will be heralded as a new age thinker,,,. But when the Dolphins go 2-12 the next 5 yrs, Ross will end up selling the team and the new owner moving them to LA. But, Ive been wrong before,,,,
