Out with the old, in with the new. The Miami Dolphins are continuing their purge of offensive coaches associated with former offensive coordinator Chan Gailey — and they’re doing so despite not having formally settled on a replacement for Gailey atop the hierarchy in the offensive coaching room. The latest change comes at quarterbacks coach, where Miami welcomed Robby Brown in 2020 thanks to a history of working with Gailey in New York with the Jets. But he, like former offensive line coach Steve Marshall, will not survive the departure of Gailey from the Dolphins’ staff and will be looking for work elsewhere for 2021.

The Dolphins announced this afternoon that they have named former NFL quarterback Charlie Frye as their new quarterbacks coach.

Miami continuing to make hires to their assistant coaching staff seems to suggest that their offensive coordinator hire will come from within the building; although we currently do not have any indication of whether that could be George Godsey or Eric Studesville. Alternatively, Miami very well may go outside their current staff for a hire; but doing so in this order bucks conventional wisdom and would be something of a surprise at this rate.

Frye, who was a former 3rd-round pick of the Cleveland Browns back in 2005, attempted 677 passes in his NFL career before retirement and a transition to coaching. He’ll have now coached at the high school, college and pro level as he leaves his post as the offensive coordinator at Central Michigan — a title he has held since 2019.
