Miami Dolphins Make Sudden Coaching Change

The Miami Dolphins made a sudden coaching change this week.

University of California assistant Gerald Alexander has been hired by head coach Brian Flores to serve as the team’s defensive backs coach.

The previous defensive backs coach, Josh Boyer, was promoted to defensive coordinator when Patrick Graham jumped ship to the New York Giants.

Alexander’s return is a unique one because once upon a time he played for the Dolphins.

Following the end of his nine-year playing career in 2011, Alexander began coaching.

To date, he has worked in various capacities at Arkansas State, Washington, Indiana State, Montana State and Cal.

“DW – Grateful you took a chance on me as a 2nd year FCS coach in your first opp to be a HC and trusting me with the responsibility of the back end,” he wrote on Twitter.

“Thank you for helping my NFL dream come true!…. AGAIN!!!”

The Dolphins went 5-11 last year but did finish the season on a two-game winning streak.

It remains to be seen what impact Alexander will ultimately have on the defense.
