The Miami Dolphins fired offensive coordinator Bill Lazor on Monday, according to an official announcement from the team. The Dolphins have been no stranger to making significant changes this year. Miami replaced Joe Philbin with interim head coach Dan Campbell earlier this season.

Lazor joined the Dolphins ahead of the team's 2014 campaign. Miami hired him away from Philadelphia where he had success as the Eagles' quarterback coach. Lazor is often credited with helping Nick Foles throw for 27 touchdowns and only two interceptions in 2013. Some started to wonder if the loss of Lazor contributed to Foles' struggles in 2014. As it turns out, Foles didn't want Lazor to return.

The Dolphins experienced some early offensive success under Lazor. Miami ranked as the No. 8 overall offense by Football Outsiders in 2014. Many noted how Lazor's offense borrowed concepts from Chip Kelly. But the success hasn't lasted and now the Dolphins are already moving on.
