New Coach? No Problem


William Karanian, Reporter


After an unimpressive 2021 season, the Miami Dolphins franchise decided it was time for a change. The team hired coach Mike Mcdaniel to try and steer the team back to its former glory. The 39 year old coach played college football at Yale. He was then hired as a coach by the Broncos in 2005. Although he is a promising football mind, and play caller, doubters still 

didn’t agree with the decision to hire this inexperienced coach. The Dolphins have started the season off 3-0, and McDaniel is the first Miami coach to do so since hall of fame coach Jimmy Johnson, which is pretty good company. In week 1 the McDaniel led Dolphins took down Bill Belichick and the Patriots 20-7. The following week the Dolphins routed the Ravens 42-38 thanks to a last second touchdown by receiver Jaylen Waddle, the Dolphins were down by 21 points in the fourth quarter, but through Mcdaniel’s brilliant play calling and leadership, he guided the team all the way back to win the game. In week 3 the Dolphins beat the Bills who are arguably the best team in the league. After week three the Dolphins star quarterback Tua Tagovailoa was concussed. He would then start in week 4 and was hit in the head again and was carted off the field. Doctors say he will be out for weeks, which was the reason behind them bringing in Veteran Teddy Bridgewater who then got hurt in week 5. After a storybook start, Miami has hit a rough patch. Now with no clear starting quarterback Miami needs to rally behind their coach and persevere through their unfortunate situation. Now as the dolphins are facing some adversary, we wait for coach Mcdaniel to guide this team back into the win column.
