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 releaseda 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.

How Much Blame Falls on Ryan Tannehill for Dolphins' Passing Woes?

Sep 17 2014 12:57pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Assigning blame over the happenings of a football game can be a slippery slope. Decisions are made in the blink of an eye by coaches trying to capitalize on weaknesses in an opposing team and by players trying to get in position to make plays. Sometimes, those decisions are correct; other times, they miss the mark. In either case, the only people privy to the "right answer" are the coaches making the calls and the p ...

Knowshon Moreno Key to Miami Dolphins’ Success

Sep 12 2014 4:29pm CDT | Source: Rant Sports

The Miami Dolphins look to avenge last season’s two losses against the Buffalo Bills, the second of which was an exercise in offensive futility. The 19-0 loss effectively sealed Mike Sherman‘s fate, and was proof positive that the offense needed a new spark. After an excellent second-half performa ...

Bill Lazor's Offense Can Elevate Miami Dolphins to One of the Best in the NFL

Sep 11 2014 6:00pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

For the first time in 13 years, the Miami Dolphins completed back-to-back victories over the New England Patriots. Much of the acclaim for that victory went to the team's defensive line. The Dolphins sacked Patriots quarterback Tom Brady four times, forcing two fumbles, while consistently disrupting the pocket. While the defense deserved a huge amount of credit for the victory, it was the Dolphins offense that allowed for a comfortable victory. The Dolphins offense compi ...

No NFL Player Faces More Pressure Entering 2014 Than Ryan Tannehill

Aug 29 2014 11:43pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill needs to be at his best in 2014.  There's an old metaphor about having one foot in the grave and the other on a banana peel, and the Dolphins' state of the franchise is in much the same position. Now, I'm not saying that Tannehill hasn't been any good in his two NFL seasons. However, the Dolphins have continued to careen out of control, and Tannehill has not been the sort of con ...

Daniel Thomas is on the roster bubble and will have one final chance to impress the Dolphins on Thursday. We break down the fantasy implications. After sitting out most of August, Miami Dolphins running back Daniel Thomas is expected to play in Thursday's preseason finale against the St. Louis Rams. Thomas suffered a hamstring injury early on in training camp and hasn't been practicing since then. Once one ...

Lamar Miller Is a Great Fantasy Flier Due to Knowshon Moreno's Injury History

Aug 20 2014 5:30pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

As far as fantasy sleeper running backs go, owners would be hard-pressed to do better than Miami's Lamar Miller. Once pegged as a breakout star, circumstances around him more than anything have prevented a breakout season from the former Miami Hurricanes standout. Miller spent his first year as a backup to Reggie Bush, then beat out Daniel Thomas for the starting role before floundering behind what was u ...

Defenses in trouble in Texas A&M-South Carolina, 2014's major season-opener

Aug 14 2014 9:49am CDT | Source: SBNation

South Carolina and Texas A&M both bring offensive advantages to Columbia for the season's first big FBS game (August 28, 6 p.m. ET, SEC Network). It's the Gamecocks' ground attack that could be the key. The last two years of Gamecock and Aggie football have been defined by the presence of two very talented and very different football players. While both programs have become rich in talent, you know the two big ...

Why Ryan Tannehill, Mike Wallace Will Thrive Under New OC Bill Lazor

Aug 12 2014 1:16am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

When the Miami Dolphins replaced offensive coordinator Mike Sherman with Bill Lazor, the message was clear: Mediocrity wouldn’t be accepted anymore. The Dolphins franchise has played just two playoff games since 2001, and the offense has often been what’s held the team back from sustained success. Under the control of Sherman, the Dolphins offense averaged just 19.5 points per game and scored 25 points or more twice in 2013. Compared to t ...

Bill Lazor Offense Looks Like a Fit for Ryan Tannehill, Miami Dolphins

Aug 8 2014 9:30pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

There were some questions as to whether Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill could ever adjust to a new system after spending six years on the short leash that was offensive coordinator Mike Sherman's system. With new offensive coordinator Bill Lazor calling the plays, Tannehill will be unleashed in an offense more diverse than anything he has ever known.  Forget your father's Dolphins or your brother's Dolphins. With Lazor at the helm, and with a ...

What We Learned from Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill's 2013 Season

Jul 31 2014 3:15pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

If the Miami Dolphins offense is going to go from a good offense to a great one, quarterback Ryan Tannehill will have to do the same.  Tannehill was an afterthought in the 2012 rookie crop of quarterbacks, but he took a step forward in his second year and laid the groundwork for further improvement by establishing his strengths and weaknesses. Now, in order to take another step forward, he must improve on the areas where defenses w ...
