The Bengals will retain OC Bill Lazor.
He's being signed to a two-year contract alongside coach Marvin Lewis, who also just signed a deal through 2019 to stay in Cincinnati. Lazor took over play-calling duties two games into the season after Ken Zampese was fired by the Bengals. The Bengals still finished dead last in total offense and 26th in scoring, but the unit improved after Lazor took over. They'll need to find serious offensive line improvements this offseason and get Joe Mixon on the right track in 2018. Jan 3 - 11:36 AM

Bengals promoted QBs coach Bill Lazor to offensive coordinator.

It's a move that shows support for Andy Dalton, replacing fired OC Ken Zampese in favor of Dalton's position coach. Lazor's hands were tied as a short-lived OC with the Dolphins, but he was also working under offensive-minded Joe Philbin, whose affinity was for passing at all costs. At his core, Lazor's roots reside with Joe Gibbs and Chip Kelly. We would expect him to focus on feeding A.J. Green and weed Jeremy Hill out of the RBBC.

Bengals hired ex-Dolphins OC Bill Lazor as QBs coach.

Lazor lasted just over a year and a half as the Dolphins' offensive coordinator before getting fired in November after coach Joe Philbin and DC Kevin Coyle were canned earlier in the season. Prior to being the Dolphins' play-caller, Lazor was coach Chip Kelly's QBs coach in Philadelphia in 2013.

Dolphins fired OC Bill Lazor.

Dolphins QB coach Zac Taylor will replace Lazor as offensive coordinator the rest of the season. This decision was reportedly made by interim coach Dan Campbell after Lazor refused to adopt the run-heavy approach he desired. If true, it shows Campbell wields a surprising amount of power for a coach sure to be out of a job in a month. Despite a strong showing last year, Lazor consistently abandoned the run too early and struggled with play calling inside the red zone this season. Ryan Tannehill also took a step back, and Lazor could never create effective protection packages to keep his almost comically unaware quarterback off the deck. Lazor was something of a hot name after last season, and he should get another shot to call plays in a less toxic situation.

The Dolphins have hired ex-Raiders OC Al Saunders as an offensive consultant.

Instead of firing more coaches, the Dolphins are shaking up the offensive staff. Bill Lazor will remain the Dolphins' OC, and he and Saunders are said to be close. Saunders, 68, has worked for a number of teams, including the Greatest Show on Turf Rams, and was last with the Raiders in 2014. In additional changes, the Dolphins have re-assigned WRs coach Ken O'Keefe to a new role.

New Dolphins OC Bill Lazor will call his own plays.

It's not a surprise, as coach Joe Philbin didn't even call plays during his days as the Packers' offensive coordinator. Lazor has never called plays at the NFL level, but has learned under master play-caller Chip Kelly, and can't possibly be any worse than ex-Dolphins OC Mike Sherman. Sherman dialed up plays seemingly at random, and was prone to abandoning the run. Lazor should work to establish the Dolphins' ground game.

Dolphins hired Eagles QBs coach Bill Lazor as offensive coordinator.

This goes completely against a report from ESPN's Ed Werder on Tuesday that said Lazor was expected to be named the Lions' offensive boss. Lazor interviewed for the Miami job last Wednesday. After the Dolphins lost out to the Giants for ex-Packers QBs coach Ben McAdoo on Tuesday, they turned their attention to Lazor. Lazor, 41, spent one season in Philadelphia and drew high praise for his work with Nick Foles. The Dolphins hope Lazor can get similar improvement out of Ryan Tannehill in his third season.

According to ESPN's Ed Werder, Eagles QBs coach Bill Lazor is expected to be named the Lions' new offensive coordinator.

Lazor has drawn plaudits for his work with Nick Foles, but has never coordinated an NFL offense. Before joining Chip Kelly's staff, he spent three seasons as the Virginia Cavaliers' offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach. He was a Redskins assistant from 2004-07, and served as the Seahawks' QBs coach in 2008-09. In Detroit, Lazor's main task would be sharpening Matthew Stafford's shoddy mechanics. Stafford has thus far been unwilling to clean up his sloppy game.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Dolphins are interviewing Eagles QBs coach Bill Lazor for their offensive-coordinator vacancy Wednesday.

Lazor, 41, just wrapped up his first season with the Eagles and was a big part of Nick Foles' sophomore leap. Previously, Lazor was the offensive coordinator and QBs coach for the Virginia Cavaliers from 2010-2012. He began his NFL coaching career in 2003 under Dan Reeves in Atlanta before making stops with the Redskins and Seahawks. ESPN's Chris Mortensen also mentioned ex-Redskins OC Kyle Shanahan as a candidate for the opening in Miami.
