The Miami Dolphins made what many around the league considered a shocking decision when they decided to fire Brian Flores after a 9-8 season, with the team closing the year on a 8-1 run. With Flores out, Miami will look for a new voice who will mesh well with the owner and general manager while also bonding with Tua Tagovailoa. Those were all things Flores reportedly struggled with, even if he was able to lead a competent team on game day.

Update, Jan. 27 — Cowboys OC Kellen Moore, 49ers OC Mike McDaniel, and Bills OC Brian Daboll will all get second interviews, per Ian Rapopport.
