https://www.palmbeachpost.com/sport...d-miami-dolphins-are-good-fits-for-each-other excerpted: If the Dolphins hire Kris Richard or Brian Flores as their next coach, it won’t be because they’re defensive gurus, secondary or linebacker whisperers or play-calling geniuses. It will be because general manager Chris Grier and owner Stephen Ross believe Richard or Flores is the best coach to teach players and lead the entire organization. The Dolphins need a coach. They don’t need another person to recommend or sign off on free agent or draft acquisitions. They don’t need a glorified coordinator who speaks about the other side of the ball with disconnect. They need a head football coach with a balance of skills who delivers big-picture confidence. And in a day in which the league-wide trend has shifted toward young, charismatic offensive play-callers, we can get on board with going against the grain. Trying something different, after years of mediocrity and failure, is more inspiring than frightening. Ross will not be outspent on free agents, when the time comes to strike (unlikely this summer). Ross has gone into his own pockets to make Hard Rock Stadium a world-class facility. There is a brand-new practice facility in Miami Gardens on the way. But this truly isn’t about improving one side of the ball. It’s not about fixing any one player, such as quarterback. It’s about fixing what’s wrong with the entire team. It’s about connecting with the entire team, while also holding individuals accountable. It’s about being a leader and a teacher. And bringing solutions, not excuses. The Dolphins need a head football coach. Not a play-calling genius. Not a guru. Not a whisperer. They need a man to lead men and Richard or Flores would do it well.
