Washington Commanders to Interview Miami Dolphins Assistant Head Coach for OC

The Washington Commanders will look to the Miami Dolphins coaching staff for an answer to their offensive coordinator vacancy. The team will interview Dolphins assistant head coach/running backs coach Eric Studesville. Studesville first entered the NFL as an offensive quality control coach with the  Chicago Bears in 1997. He has served primarily as a running backs coach ever since with stints on the New York Giants, Buffalo Bills, Denver Broncos, and most recently with the Dolphins. He also briefly served as interim head coach for the Broncos in 2010 following the firing of head coach Josh McDaniels.

Studesville participated in a massive offensive turnaround for the Dolphins this season, so it makes sense that he's finally being considered for a promotion. After seven straight years of ranking 15th or worse in points scored, the Dolphins climbed to 11th in 2022 and ranked sixth in yards gained despite four missed games from starting quarterback Tua Tagovailoa. Over his 13 healthy appearances, Tagovailoa managed league-best marks in passer rating (105.5) and net yards per passing attempt (8.04).
