According to the New York Daily News, Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator Brian Daboll is “the favorite to be the Miami Dolphins’ next head coach.” Daboll has been interviewing for jobs since the Bills were eliminated from the playoffs.
Daboll is one of the hotter names in this head coaching cycle. There was the belief that he was going to be the Los Angeles Chargers head coach last coaching cycle because he was friends with Chargers GM Tom Telesco.
He did not receive that job, as it went to Brandon Staley. If Daboll gets the Dolphins job, he would replace Brian Flores, who was fired after three seasons.
Pat Leonard, who wrote the story, also claims that Dallas Cowboys defensive coordinator Dan Quinn or Flores would be the Giants’ favorite should Daboll become the Dolphins head coach. The Giants recently hired former Bills assistant GM Joe Schoen to be their GM.
Daboll and Schoen’s time overlapped one another during their time in Buffalo. This has caused many to speculate that Daboll would take over for Joe Judge, who was fired at the end of the season after two seasons.
The 46-year-old Daboll has been the Bills offensive coordinator since the 2018 season. Before joining the Bills, he spent one season as the Alabama Crimson Tide offensive coordinator.
During his time with the Crimson Tide, he worked with Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa. Daboll had a hand in helping the Crimson Tide to the College Football Playoff National Championship.
He has worked in the NFL from 2000 through 2016. He worked with the New England Patriots, New York Jets, Cleveland Browns, Dolphins, and the Kansas City Chiefs during this time.
He was previously the Dolphins offensive coordinator during the 2011 season. He is a five-time Super Bowl-winning coach.
The Welland, Ontario, Canada native was named the AP NFL Assistant Coach of the Year in 2020.
