The head coach of the Miami Dolphins, Brian Flores, did not take long to determine whether he would do that to instruct the wrong man to train his line of attack. Pat Flaherty had the job for less than six months – he was hired by Flores on February 8 and fired on Monday after only four practice sessions.
Ian Rapoport says Flaherty's problems go back several months. and have to do with his ability to coach the system of Dolphins offensive coordinator Chad O & # 39; Shea. DeGuglielmo was reportedly included as an analyst in the organization to help Flaherty "tell the players what they want". After Flores had watched the attack line dominate at the beginning of the training camp, he had obviously seen enough and traded DeGuglielmo for Flaherty.
DeGuglielmo was bombarded over two seasons with the Patriots from the same job, culminating in the catastrophic performance of the line at the 2016 AFC Championship. Tom Brady was beaten to hell, the running game was absent, and the Patriots lost just against the Denver Broncos. DeGuglielmo was fired the next day. Last season, he was the only offensive coach to take the lead in the nine hours between Josh McDaniels, who took the head coaching job in Indianapolis, and the resignation of the head coaching job in Indianapolis. The current Colts head coach Frank Reich left Guglielmo for last season, and Indy's attacking line improved dramatically, but Guglielmo was fired in January to clear the way for one of Reich's own employees.
It's great to read brilliant reviews of Miami's center-back line for a few days at the training camp, knowing that the team's offensive line play was so alarmingly incoherent and incoherent that it cost the brand-new coach his job. On the other hand, the Dolphins with this kind of defensive line and Flore's proven commitment to excellence are on the right track to win 11 games this season, maybe 12 games.
