The Latest On The Miami Dolphins Coaching Search.

Even though I will not get the guy I wanted (Jim Harbaugh) I am happy that they will hire an offensive minded person and I do not have a favorite. It appears from all indications that it will come down between two individuals. 

The 49ers offensive coordinator Mike McDaniel & The Dallas Cowboys offensive coordinator Kellen Moore. 

Here is some information on both coaches: Thanks To Wikipedia

Kellen Christopher Moore (born July 5, 1988) is an American football coach and former quarterback who is the Offensive Coordinator for the Dallas Cowboys of the National Football League (NFL). He previously played six seasons in the NFL for the Cowboys and Detroit Lions. Moore played college football at Boise State, where he set the FBS record for quarterback wins. Signed by Detroit as an undrafted free agent in 2012, he was a member of the Lions and Cowboys for three seasons each. He rejoined Dallas as a coach following his retirement and became the team’s offensive coordinator in 2019.

Coaching career

In 2018, after retiring from the NFL, he became the Cowboys’ quarterbacks coach after the Cowboys long time coach Wade Wilson retired. On January 31, 2019, the Cowboys announced that Moore would be promoted to offensive coordinator.[41] Following Jason Garrett‘s release as Cowboys’ head coach after 10 seasons, FOX NFL insider Jay Glazer reported new coach Mike McCarthy had expressed interest to keep Moore on the coaching staff, which McCarthy did.

From the Miami Herald

According to ESPN, San Francisco 49ers offensive coordinator Mike McDaniel arrived in South Florida Thursday night (2-3-22) and will interview with the Dolphins Friday. Dallas Cowboys offensive coordinator Kellen Moore is scheduled to interview Saturday. (2-4-22)

If I were to lean towards one, Mike McDaniel seems to be the more qualified, but both are considered highly intelligent offensive minds something Miami NEEDS and if they can work out a deal to keep the defensive staff in place, I am really excited about the possibilities….Stay Tuned
