The Miami Dolphins made multiple changes to their coaching staff during the 2015 regular season, including firing head coach Joe Philbin and defensive coordinator Kevin Coyle after a 1-3 start to the season, then adding offensive coordinator Bill Lazor to the list of fired coaches later in the year. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Coyle and Lazor will continue coaching with each other in 2016:

Coyle returns to the Bengals, where he was the defensive backs coach before Miami hired him as their defensive coordinator. He fills a vacancy created when Miami hired Vance Joseph, serving as Cincinnati's defensive backs coach, to be their new defensive coordinator heading into the 2016 season.

Lazor previously served under Chip Kelly with the Philadelphia Eagles as their quarterbacks coach before landing the Dolphins offensive coordinator position.
