Quick but interesting tidbit out of Miami this week. The Dolphins recently made some alterations to their coaching staff. Assistant Karl Dorrell is moving from receivers coach to quarterbacks coach. According to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald, the reason could be because of Brandon Marshall.
Jackson writes, “Some of the Dolphins’ coaching hires have drawn skepticism around the league, especially the shifting of Karl Dorrell from receivers coach to quarterbacks coach, a position he has never held (though he has been a college head coach and offensive coordinator). One Dolphins staffer said handling Brandon Marshall was difficult, at times, for Dorrell, though nobody would ever say that publicly.”
Perhaps the change in day to day responsibilities will serve Dorrell well. Of course, whoever he coaches at the quarterback position will likely have to deal with Marshall’s distractions in practice and constant demands for the football.
