Reports surfaced on Tuesday that Eagles quarterback coach Bill Lazor was going to be the next Lions offensive coordinator. The reports were later retracted and Lazor was simply a strong candidate.
Well, fast forward 18 hours. Bill Lazor is now an offensive coordinator in the NFL! The difference? Everybody had the wrong team. ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports Lazor has been hired as the new offensive coordinator on Joe Philbin's staff with the Miami Dolphins.
The 41-year-old Lazor just completed his first season as Eagles quarterback coach. The product on the field was nothing to scoff at. Nick Foles, a third round pick in 2012 who didn't become the team's starter until October, is headed to Honolulu as a Pro Bowl quarterback. Prior to joining the Eagles, Lazor was the offensive coordinator at the University of Virginia.
This is a pretty big loss for the Eagles but I trust Kelly won't miss a beat with the replacement.
