Miami Dolphins coaching staff migrating to New York
By Brian Miller
The Miami Dolphins are slowly watching their offensive coaches rejoin Adam Gase in New York as now another coach is expected to join the Jets.
Already joining former Miami Dolphins head coach Adam Gase is offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains but now word is that wide-receiver coach Shawn Jefferson will also join the Jets and Gase.
Miami Dolphins fans can’t help but wonder what exactly the Jets have seen in Adam Gase and his offensive staff. Gase has yet to poach any of his defensive coaches which isn’t surprising given how well the defense did last year. It is not however like the offense played any better.
In 2018 the Dolphins beat the Jets twice so maybe that was enough for the Jets to see the potential. Throughout 2018 however the Dolphins offense wasn’t very impressive even with Ryan Tannehill.
In the three game opening season stretch, the Dolphins scored 27, 20, 28 points. They posted only two games on the season with more than 30 points. At the same time they scored less than 20 seven times with two games less than 10.
Dowell Loggains did not call the offensive plays and will not in New York. If his job was to get the team ready for Sunday’s Miami’s offense looked ill prepared almost weekly to take on the opponents each week.
In 16 games the Dolphins posted total yards on offense of more than 300 yards seven times. Five times they posted less than 200 yards.
With Jefferson it will be interesting to see what he brings to the Jets offense who really have no standout receivers. In Miami the team leader in receiving yards was Danny Amendola with 575. Kenny Stills was 2nd with 553 and the two of them were the only receivers with more than 500 yards total.
Not really stellar numbers to make Jets fans feel confident in the hirings that Gase is bringing.
