8 Coordinators Who Could Become NFL Head Coaches In 2015

4. Bill Lazor, Miami

This is an interesting situation because of the reported tension between Lazor and some Dolphins players this season. But regardless of the whispers coming out of Miami’s locker room, there’s no denying the impact Lazor has had on a once anemic offense down in South Florida.

The Chip Kelly disciple has morphed a Dolphins’ offense that ranked 26th and 27th in points and yards, respectively, in 2013 into a unit ranked 12th and 21st this year. Lamar Miller has become a focal point in the up-tempo offense, while Ryan Tannehill has become a serviceable enough starter, putting up career numbers in third season as a pro.

Given Lazor’s work with Nick Foles and now Tannehill, and the fact he’s not only adapted to running the spread but has experience in old-school offensive styles as well, he’ll be attractive for organizations that haven’t had much luck finding Andrew Lucks in the draft.
