    What to Know

    • McKenzie won the 2016 NFL executive of the year award for his rebuilding job with the Oakland Raiders after the death of owner Al Davis.

    Former NFL executive of the year Reggie McKenzie has been hired by the Miami Dolphins as a senior personnel executive under general manager Chris Grier.

    The move was the latest change in football operations for the Dolphins following a 7-9 season. Grier was given more authority last month, and Brian Flores was hired as coach to replace the fired Adam Gase.

    McKenzie won the 2016 NFL executive of the year award for his rebuilding job with the Oakland Raiders after the death of owner Al Davis in 2011. But McKenzie clashed with new Raiders coach Jon Gruden and was fired in December shortly before the end of a 4-12 season.

    Oakland backslid following a 12-win season in 2016, and McKenzie's two most recent drafts failed to produce many impact players.
