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.

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 undoubtedly one of the worst lines in NFL history. As ...

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 ...

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 the rest of the league, which featured 11 te ...

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 ...

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 wil ...

Dolphins want to make WR Mike Wallace a complete receiver

Jul 29 2014 8:34pm CDT | Source: Fantasy Football Toolbox

The Dolphins did many things last year with Mike Wallace that he was already used to. Lined him up right, sent him deep. Lined him up right, sent him deep. Those days are over in Bill Lazor's offense. He wants Wallace and all of Miami's wideouts to do more. They will run a variety of routes and line up all over the formation. There will be a lot of motion and some end-arounds. That puts the onus on Wallace, never a great technical player, to ada ...

Dolphins envision RB Lamar Miller as their version of LeSean McCoy

Jul 27 2014 8:30pm CDT | Source: Fantasy Football Toolbox

Bill Lazor, the Eagles' quarterbacks coach last season, left Philadelphia for Miami in January to become the Dolphins' offensive coordinator. He obviously couldn't bring LeSean McCoy with him, but the Dolphins think they have a player able to mimic what quot;Shady" has done. Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald wrote Sunday "there's a hope in Dolphins camp" that Lamar Miller can be the McCoy in Lazor's scheme. Miller has been preparing for s ...

Charles Clay Enters 2014 NFL Season as League's Best Secret Weapon

Jul 25 2014 6:00am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill dropped back from under center and executed a picture-perfect play-action fake. Tight end Charles Clay, lined up at the fullback position in an offset I-formation, darted toward the sideline before rounding off his route as he raced toward the end zone, breaking past the coverage of Seattle Seahawks linebacker Leroy Hill. Tannehill delivered a pristine pass that hit Clay in str ...

Look for Mike Wallace to Return to Form in 2014

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

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 2012, but significantly shy of ...
