Dolphins hire Lazor to guide offense

The Miami Dolphins have hired Bill Lazor as offensive coordinator, the team announced Wednesday.

Lazor spent this season as the Philadelphia Eagles‘ quarterbacks coach.

The 41-year-old Lazor replaces Mike Sherman, who was fired after two seasons.

“I am excited to be joining the Miami Dolphins,” Lazor said. “I look forward to working with Coach Philbin and his staff. I want to thank Jeffrey Lurie, Chip Kelly, and the entire Philadelphia Eagles organization for the great opportunity they gave me over this past year. I am eager to get to Miami to help build the 2014 Dolphins.”

Lazor did wonders with Eagles quarterback Nick Foles, who started the season as a backup and led Philadelphia to the NFC East title. Miami needs someone to work closely with Ryan Tannehill, who will enter his third season as the team’s quarterback.

Miami was 27th in total offense and 26th in scoring at 19.8 points per game this season. The Dolphins scored just seven points in their final two games, losing to the Buffalo Bills and New York Jets to finish 8-8 and miss the playoffs after they controlled their destiny with two games left in the season.
