Boyer first arrived in Miami in 2019 as the cornerbacks coach. He was promoted to defensive coordinator in 2020 and spent the last three seasons in the position.
“I am grateful for Josh’s contributions this year and throughout his tenure with the Dolphins,” said head coach Mike McDaniel. said in an official statement. “As immunity progressed through the season, this decision was not easy to reach, but ultimately I feel it is in the best long-term interest of the Miami Dolphins and the continued growth of our players and team.”
The NFL world took to Twitter to react to the news.
One fan wrote, “Much needed. Can’t wait to see who we pick.”
“Time for celebration,” said another.
“W! Really good start to the off-season,” added another.
The Dolphins finished the 2022 season in the bottom half of the league in yards per game and points allowed per game. After a promising start to the season, the Miami team disintegrated by the end of the year.
McDaniel will now have the opportunity to appoint his own defensive coordinator for the first time since taking over as head coach.
