Dolphins hire Eagles' Lazor as OC

MIAMI (AP) - The Miami Dolphins are hoping their new offensive coordinator clicks with Ryan Tannehill the way he did with Nick Foles.

Bill Lazor, who tutored Foles this season as quarterbacks coach of the Philadelphia Eagles, has been hired by Miami, a person familiar with the situation said Wednesday. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Wednesday because the Dolphins hadn't announced the hiring.

Lazor joined the Eagles a year ago when Chip Kelly was hired as head coach. Lazor was instrumental in the development of Foles, who led the NFL in passing in his second NFL season.

The Dolphins also had a second-year quarterback in Tannehill. Foles threw 27 touchdown passes and two interceptions, while Tannehill threw 24 and 17.

Lazor was offensive coordinator at the University of Virginia from 2010 to 2012, and he has also worked for the Washington Redskins, Seattle Seahawks and Atlanta Falcons. He replaces Mike Sherman, who was fired last week after two seasons with Miami and was Tannehill's head coach at Texas A&M.

Also interviewed for the job were Green Bay Packers quarterbacks coach Ben McAdoo, who was hired Tuesday as offensive coordinator of the New York Giants, and former Washington Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan.

Miami is also searching for a general manager to replace Jeff Ireland, who departed last week after six seasons.

The Dolphins ranked 27th in the NFL in yards and scored once in their final 24 possessions while losing their final two games to miss the playoffs for the fifth consecutive year. Miami allowed a franchise-record 58 sacks, and offseason upgrades will focus on an offensive line depleted by the team's midseason bullying scandal.

The Dolphins might be in the market for a running back, too. Lamar Miller scored two touchdowns, the lowest total for a player leading the Dolphins in rushing since 1980.

Miami threw the ball 65 percent of the time, third-highest in the NFL. The Eagles threw it 53 percent of the time, sixth-lowest, and ranked second in yards and offensive points.
