Dolphins Fire DC Josh Boyer
NFL Divisional - The Miami Dolphins have fired defensive coordinator Josh Boyer, according to a report from ESPN's Field Yates.
Boyer was hired as a defensive pass game coordinator and cornerbacks coach in 2019, following Brian Flores from New England to Miami upon receiving the head coaching job. Boyer was promoted to defensive coordinator in 2020 and retained his role once Mike McDaniel was hired as head coach.
In 2022, Miami posted a positive defensive DVOA for the first time since 2019 and for the first time under Boyer. While the Dolphins finished fourth in the league in defensive rushing DVOA, they were significantly lacking in their pass defense. Miami's eight interceptions this year were the fourth-fewest for a team this season. The Dolphins also finished the year with a 6.8% adjusted sack rate, ranking 20th in the league.
