Dolphins Fire Offensive Coordinator Bill Lazor

The Miami Dolphins have fired offensive coordinator Bill Lazor following Sunday's 38-20 loss to the New York Jets.

The team confirmed the news, first reported by Sports Illustrated and NBC Sports, in a statement released Monday morning.

A team source told NBC 6 that Lazor was fired Monday morning, and that quarterbacks coach Zac Taylor will take over, which was later confirmed in the release.

The Dolphins also announced that assistant wide receivers coach Phil McGeoghan had been promoted to wide receivers coach.

The Dolphins are in last place in the AFC East with a record of 47-7. Former head coach Joe Philbin was fired earlier this year after the team first fell to the Jets. Defensive coordinator Kevin Coyle was let go in October.

NBC Sports reports that interim head coach Dan Campbell held a different philosophy than Lazor, who has limited quarterback Ryan Tannehill’s ability to change plays at the line of scrimmage.

The Dolphins needed a win and instead ended up with a lopsided loss when the Jets took Sunday's game 38-20.
