New Dolphins coach Mike McDaniel very high on Tua Tagovailoa

February 7, 2022

The Dolphins hired 49ers offensive coordinator Mike McDaniel as the franchise’s new coach on Sunday, replacing Brian Flores, who was fired on Jan. 10 after three seasons.

One of McDaniel’s key responsibilities as the new coach in Miami will appear to be attempting to maximizing 23-year-old quarterback Tua Tagovailoa.

NFL Network’s Peter Schrager spoke to McDaniel over the weekend, saying that, in Schrager’s words, McDaniel told him he is “very high“ on Tagovailoa and excited to work with him.
