Gailey will step down after just one season as the Dolphins offensive coordinator. It was reported earlier in the week that the Dolphins were firing Gailey, but that reported turned out to be false. Gailey came out of a three-year retirement to take the Dolphins’ job last season, so it will be interesting to see if he’s officially out of football for good.
The Dolphins will now be looking for their third offensive coordinator in three years, and the new hire will likely have the responsibility of developing quarterback Tua Tagovailoa. The Dolphins could theoretically move on from Tua after just nine starts – they own the No. 3 overall pick in the upcoming draft – but general manager Chris Grier recently committed to Tagovailoa as their starting quarterback in 2021. He was once considered a no-doubt franchise quarterback, but a hip injury at Alabama has clouded his future. He was mediocre as a rookie, finishing with an average of 6.2 adjusted yards per attempt while tossing 11 touchdowns and five interceptions.
