Breaking News: David Lee Leaving Miami


This information does not come from me, so you can take this one to the bank…or at least blame someone else if it’s wrong. Omar Kelly of the Sun-Sentinel is reporting that Miami Dolphins QB coach, David Lee, and the founding father of the Dolphins version of the Wild Cat, is heading back to the college ranks. Lee will team up with Ole Miss HC Houston Nutt as the teams offensive coordinator.

Lee made a few headlines last off-season when he worked with impending draftee Tim Tebow, and was criticized often for his work with Chad Henne. Lee has been the QB coach in Miami since 2008.

An related tweet from someone at the NFL offices, according to an internet website, says that Mike Nolan and some of his staff wish to leave the Dolphins to join Jason Garrett in Dallas. The move would be a lateral move and is prohibited by the league unless of course the Dolphins allowed Nolan to leave. We’ll keep you poasted.

    Not shocking. BTW when is the Forum going to be back up? Any guess?

    Brian, thanks for the update. I cannot honestly access the reprecussions of losing David, but obviously to lose Mike would be a blow. It seems painfully obvious the coaches are not happy with the way things are handled in Miami. Can’t say I blame them much.

    Soon. I hope

    Great news. He was gone anyway when Henning left. The new offensive coordinator will bring with him his own QB coach as well.

    Losing Nolan as our DC would be a major setback to this Miami team. I think we would be hard pushed to find anyone who could fill his shoes! the guy deserves lot’s of kudos for turning our defense into one of the best in the league. I can’t speak for everyone but the only thing that kept me excited about the team last season was the defense! & Cam Wake, that guy was a beast!!
