69-year-old Gailey resigns after one season as Dolphins offensive coordinator

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

Miami Dolphins offensive coordinator Chan Gailey has resigned. He spent one season as the team’s offensive coordinator.

This comes after a bogus ESPN report earlier this week that said that the Dolphins had fired Gailey. However, that was not the case. ESPN had to publish a retraction on their report.

Gailey returned to the NFL in 2020 after being away from the league for three seasons. Before being hired by the Dolphins, he last worked with the New York Jets in 2016.

“I want to thank Chan for all of his hard work and dedication in what was a unique year,” Dolphins head coach Brian Flores said. “He played an important role on the staff and in the development of our young roster. I wish him all the best.”

With Gailey leaving the Dolphins, the team will have their third offensive coordinator in three seasons under soon-to-be third-year head coach Flores. If the team looks in-house to replace Gailey, tight ends coach George Godsey and running backs coach Eric Studesville are the most logical solutions.

The 69-year-old Gainesville, Georgia native has spent 21 seasons coaching in the NFL. He has been a coach since 1974.

His first-year coaching in the NFL was in 1985 with the Denver Broncos as their tight ends coach and special teams coach. He spent five seasons as a head coach in the NFL with the Dallas Cowboys and the Buffalo Bills.

Gailey went 34-46 in those five seasons with the Cowboys and the Bills. He had one winning season during his tenure as a head coach.

Despite going 8-8 in 1999, Gailey guided the Cowboys to two playoff appearances in his two seasons as the leader of the team. Both times, America’s team lost in the NFC Wild-Card Game.

He also spent two seasons as the Troy State Trojans head coach in 1983 and 1984. He also spent one season as the Samford Bulldogs head coach in 1993.

In addition, he spent six seasons as the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets head coach from 2002 through 2007.

Gailey also spent two seasons as the Birmingham Fire head coach in 1991 and 1992.
