ESPN: Brian Daboll to Be Dolphins Next Offensive Coordinator

Will Brian Daboll be the man to turn around the Miami Dolphins' faulty offense? According to ESPN, he's just been hired as the new offensive coordinator. He's spent two years in the same position with the Cleveland Browns, but before that spent time on the staffs of the Dolphin's two biggest rivals: the Jets and Patriots.

>Daboll served as the Pats' wide receivers coach from 2002 to 2006, before coaching quarterbacks under Eric Mangini with the Jets until 2009. He left with Mangini and became his OC with the Browns.

Though, the Browns offense this season came in 29th in total yards. Far lower than the Dolphins at 21. In fact, the Dolphins did far better than the Browns in all major team statistics this season except for rushing yards as the Browns racked up a whole three more total yards.

"To be fair, though, he maximized the Browns' underwhelming talent while making impressive progress with Colt McCoy's development," reports MSNBC.

The announcement is expected to be made official either later today or tomorrow.
