Miami Dolphins Coaching Staff: Who Is on the Dolphins’ Coaching Staff?

The Miami Dolphins' coaching staff will feature a big change for 2023 that should improve a unit that took a step back in 2022.

Mike McDaniel and the Miami Dolphins‘ coaching staff made a splash in South Beach during their first season. At one point, they looked like Super Bowl contenders, and QB Tua Tagovailoa looked like an MVP candidate. Tua’s health will provide a bit of savviness to navigate should it be an issue. How they navigate those challenges will determine their level of success. Here are the people in charge of steering the Dolphins’ ship toward a second consecutive playoff berth.

New Changes to Dolphins Coaching Staff in 2023

All in all, the 2023 Dolphins’ coaching staff made several new additions. First and foremost, the addition of defensive coordinator Vic Fangio. Fangio is considered one of the top defensive minds in all of football.

The defense took a big step back in 2022, and Fangio is charged with getting them back in order. He’ll have one of the top secondaries to work with and an improved pass rush with familiar face Bradley Chubb.

One trouble spot in Miami has been their offensive line. 2023 will see a new offensive line coach added to the coaching staff in Butch Barry. Barry spent time with the 49ers and Broncos the last few seasons. Both teams run a similar offense to Miami.

Additionally, the Dolphins hired offensive assistant Max McCaffrey, assistant defensive line coach Kenny Baker, defensive assistant Steve Donatell, passing game coordinator/secondary Renaldo Hill, and safeties coach Joe Kasper. All were new additions to the Dolphins’ coaching staff.

Miami has given three coaches from 2022 new roles for 2023. They are outside linebackers coach Ryan Slowik and offensive assistants Ricardo Allen and Mike Judge.
