Lou Anarumo is out as the Miami Dolphins defensive backs coach. Anarumo came to Miami as part of Joe Philbin’s staff and remained a holdover after Adam Gase got the head coaching job. Anarumo spent six seasons with the team and helped develop Xavien Howard, Tony Lippett, and Cordrea Tankersley these past two seasons. But there was constant miscommunication in the secondary during the season and the Dolphins were near the bottom of the league in interceptions.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day’s round-up below.
