BILL LAZOR – Former Dolphins OC

Actually, Lazor might get more credit than Philbin for the Dolphins 2014 improvement. Brought in prior to the season, after one year working under Chip Kelly in Philadelphia, Lazor was the primary play-caller as Miami jumped from 26th to 11th in the league in points.

There were signs that the Dolphins offense was making another step forward this year as they surged in the games following Philbin’s dismissal. But interim coach Dan Campbell fired Lazor last week, reportedly over differences in philosophy. Apparently, Lazor was limiting Tannehill’s ability to change plays at the line of scrimmage, and wasn’t committed enough to the running game. That wouldn’t seem to bode well for his chances of getting a look in Seattle, but he’s been a hot name before.

And while it may not affect his candidacy in any way, Lazor served as QB coach in Seattle from 2008-2009, working under both Mike Holmgren and Jim Mora.

Ok….. now that I type that and see it in black and white, there’s probably little chance Lazor would get much of look after all.
