DAVIE — Following the release of a video featuring Dolphins offensive line coach Chris Foerster sniffing a white substance from his desk and his subsequent resignation, the Dolphins are set to add Dave DeGugliemo as their senior offensive assistant.
DeGugliemo, 49 is a familiar face in Miami as he served as the teams offensive line coach from 2009-2011 under head coach Tony Sparano. He has since served in the same capacity for other AFC East teams such as the New England Patriots and the New York Jets.
DeGugliemo operated as the Los Angeles Rams assistant offensive line coach from 2016-Oct. 2017. In his new position of offensive line coach for the Miami Dolphins, he will now team up with assistant offensive line coach Chris Kuper to help get the Dolphins’ offensive line on track.
The Dolphins run game is ranked 31st in the NFL (74.8 ypg) and their passing attack is dead last in the NFL (156.5 ypg). The Dolphins will rely heavily on DeGugliemo, whose NFL coaching career 12 years to right the ship.
The Dolphins have a great deal of talent on offense, but if the offensive line is unable to generate a surge in the run game, or protect the quarterback, weapons such as Jay Ajayi, Jarvis Landry, DeVante Parker and Kenny Stills will be rendered useless.
