The Miami Dolphins fired offensive coordinator Mike Sherman on Monday.

The Miami Dolphins fired offensive coordinator Mike Sherman on Jan. 6.

ESPN's James Walker notes Sherman's tenure with the team lasted two seasons. His offense ranked just 27th and 26th in scoring with a 19.8 point-average in a 32-team field. 

According to Walker,"Sherman often was criticized for lack of balance and predictable play calling. But the final nail was when Miami scored just seven points in its final eight quarters during crucial, season-ending losses to the Buffalo Bills and New York Jets." 

With these, Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin thanked Sherman for his contributions on the team's official website

"I would like to thank Mike for his contributions to the Miami Dolphins. Mike has been a mentor to me throughout my coaching career, dating back to 1979. He is a man of great integrity, dedicated to his family, his team, his players and his profession. 

"On behalf of the entire Miami Dolphins organization I want to wish Mike and his family the very best in the future." 

Miami quarterback Ryan Tannehill also released a statement of his own on the website regarding Philbin's dismissal. The two had a strong relationship, dating back to Tannehill's days as Texas A&M Aggies quarterback and Philbin's as head coach. 

"Coach Sherman and I have a great relationship. He has made significant contributions to the Dolphins organization, and I am very grateful to have had the opportunity to play for him for the last six years. 

"I learned so much about football and life in that time, and for that I am forever grateful. I will always respect Coach Sherman both as a coach and more importantly for the kind of man he is. I wish him and his family the best in whatever God has in store for him next." 

Walker points out of the reasons why the Dolphins hired Sherman two years ago was because of his rapport with Tannehill, whom he recruited to Texas A&M during his college football coaching tenure. 

On the other hand, Greg Cote of The Miami Herald reported on Jan. 6 that offensive line coach Jim Turner "may also be let go, and that GM Jeff Ireland's future still is being considered," citing a team source. 

Cote also wrote Philbin "is safe." Walker made the same assessment in his report, saying Philbin stays "as long as changes are made to the coaching staff."  

The Dolphins are now on the lookout for Sherman's replacement.

Look for Mike Wallace to Return to Form in 2014

Jul 9 2014 10:53am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Miami Dolphins Minicamp
The Miami Dolphins made a big splash last year when they signed Mike Wallace away from the Pittsburgh Steelers. Unfortunately he was wildly inconsistent on the field. Can the speedster turn things around this year and be a more consistent fantasy threat? I believe he can. Wallace set career-lows with five touchdown catches and a 12.7 yards per catch average in 2013. His 930 receiving yards were an improvement over the 836 he had in 2 ...

Tannehill struggles to grasp Dolphins’ offence

Jun 17 2014 3:13pm CDT | Source: Sportsnet.ca

Miami Dolphins Minicamp
MIAMI — Ryan Tannehill stood in shotgun formation, signalled by clapping his hands twice, scurried up to the centre for a brief consultation, retreated to his position and stomped his foot as another signal. Finally he took the snap — and a flag flew. Penalty. So it went Tuesday on the first day of mini-camp for the Miami Dolphins, whose shoddy execution on offence left Tannehill annoyed. Near the end of practice he y ...

Can Mike Wallace Bounce Back in 2014 with Dolphins' New-Look Offense?

Jun 17 2014 6:00am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Mike Wallace Memorial
Mike Wallace wouldn't admit that the offensive scheme was the source of his struggles, but it probably won't take long for us to find out the truth for ourselves. In 2012-2013, the Dolphins ran a vanilla, uninventive offense that made life all too easy for opposing defenses. Former offensive coordinator Mike Sherman spent two years building a box, and new offensive coordinator Bill Lazor is now spending his time outside of it. Lazor has been given autonomy over the ...

Re-Evaluating Texas A&M's 2011 Recruiting Class

Jun 15 2014 2:01pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Miami Dolphins v Houston Texans
When the players in Texas A&M's 2011 recruiting class signed their national letters of intent, no one had a clue how impactful the class would become. A recruiting class that failed to raise an eyebrow on the national scene would eventually change the way people perceived Texas A&M.  The 2011 Texas A&M recruiting class was ranked No. 31 overall by 247Sports.com. It was the last complete class signed ...

Miami Dolphins: Creating the Blueprint for Optimal Offense in 2014

Jun 8 2014 5:51am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Miami Dolphins Minicamp
The Miami Dolphins made a litany of moves during the offseason, but one of the best additions the team had was bringing in Philadelphia Eagles quarterback coach Bill Lazor to be the new offensive coordinator. From the moment he agreed to come to Miami, fans envisioned an explosive, run-and-gun offense similar to what we saw in Philadelphia.  With that in mind, let's create the blueprint for the optimal offense for the Dolphin ...
