Since taking over as the head coach of the Miami Dolphins ahead of the 2022 NFL season, Mike McDaniel has also served as the team’s primary play caller. But with the team failing to meet its goals this season after a Wild Card round loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, it sounds like he’d be willing to give up those duties.

In a press conference this week, Mike McDaniel made it clear that he would be open to giving up play-calling duties next season if he determined that would be in the best interest of the team.

“Nothing’s off the table, ever,” McDaniel said according to David Furones of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. “I think we failed to reach our goals this season, so play-calling wouldn’t live outside that.”

It’s worth noting that the Dolphins were actually pretty successful on the offensive side of the ball this season, averaging 27.9 points per game, which ranks No. 4 in the entire league, as well as 393.7 yards per game, which ranks No. 2 in the league.

Still, the offense obviously wasn’t enough to help the team win the division or a playoff game, so it sounds like McDaniel and the Dolphins will at least consider a change in this regard.
