Should Dolphins hire another veteran defensive coordinator- The Splash Zone 1/27/24

Welcome to the Splash Zone, the quickest way to get your day started off right. We bring you a rundown of Miami Dolphins news from the last 24 hours.

NFL: Miami Dolphins at Washington Commanders Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

It was somewhat shocking when it was announced that Vic Fangio and the Miami Dolphins mutually parted ways this week. After the announcement was made though, it became it wasn’t all sunshine and rainbows with the defensive side of the ball as several players made it know to Mike McDaniel that they did not want Fangio to return as defensive coordinator. These players got their wish and now McDaniel must find his third defensive coordinator in as many years. Dolphins linebacker coach, Anthony Campanile, is an in-house candidate for the job but has never held the defensive coordinator title. Which is why it would make sense for McDaniel to look for an experienced DC and if they have head coaching experience, that’s a plus. Ron Rivera, Leslie Frazier, or Wink Martindale could all be viable options if McDaniel decides he wants to go down that path.

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