MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. — The next head coach of the Miami Dolphins could be a familiar face for the team's franchise quarterback.
Daboll, who has been with Buffalo since 2018, spent the 2017 season as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Alabama, when Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa was a freshman for the Crimson Tide.
The NFL assistant coach of the year in 2020, Daboll might also be a familiar name to Miami fans. He was offensive coordinator of the Dolphins under Tony Sparano in 2011.
Flores was fired Monday morning despite leading the Dolphins to back-to-back winning seasons. But that wasn't good enough for owner Stephen Ross, who felt the "key dynamics of our football organization weren't functioning at a level I want it to be."
Daboll is a longtime NFL assistant who has won five Super Bowls, all under New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick.
