Dolphins close in on Bevell as game coordinator

It is understood that the Miami Dolphins are close to completing a move for former Jacksonville Jaguars interim head coach, Darrell Bevell to join their staffing roster as the quarterback and passing game coordinator.

Such a move could certainly be a coup for the Dolphins, with Bevell having a substantial amount of experience at the highest level.

His history of moulding some of the game’s top quarterbacks in recent years, including Brett Favre and Russell Wilson, could be invaluable for head coach Mike McDaniel who will surely appreciate the assistance that he can offer.

One of Bevell’s next key assignments is going to make sure that Tua Tagovailoa gets all of the right guidance.

Multiple staff changes

While the season may have only just ended (if you take into account the playoffs), this has not stopped the Dolphins from looking ahead to the next campaign already and have begun in earnest with their coaching staff.

Having posted a 9-8 record to finish third in the AFC East in the season just gone, this certainly wasn’t the worst, though the report card essentially reads “can do better” – something that the Florida franchise will be keen to focus on.

Bevell will, no doubt, bring a lot of experience to the ranks, however, he isn’t the only change that is being implemented. Frank Smith has been brought in as offensive coordinator, having previously been run coordinator at the Los Angeles Chargers. A highlight of his impressive resume includes his tutelage of Darren Waller while serving as a tight end coach.
