The Miami Dolphins will hire Brian Daboll as their offensive coordinator, ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported. Daboll served as the Browns' offensive coordinator for the past two seasons.
Daboll's hiring is expected to be announced Monday or Tuesday, sources have told Mortensen. Daboll is still under contract with the Browns, but his days in Cleveland were numbered after the team fired coach Eric Mangini on Jan. 3.
This past season, the Browns' offense ranked 29th (289.7 yards per game) in the NFL. In 2009, it ranked 32nd -- last in the league (260.2 yards per game). In 2010, the offense averaged 16.9 points per game compared with 15.3 from the previous season.
The Browns showed interest in replacing Daboll with Denver Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy, but he decided to stay put. Cleveland is now expected to target other assistant coaches who are familiar with Browns coach Pat Shurmur.
