Bill Lazor certainly became a hot commodity after presiding over Nick Foles' development, a huge key to the Eagles' turnaround in the first season under Chip Kelly.
Lazor, Kelly's quarterbacks coach, was officially named the Dolphins' offensive coordinator Wednesday, one day after it was reported he was the Lions' first choice for that job. Lazor chose Miami and Ryan Tannehill over Detroit and Matt Stafford.
"Bill is an accomplished coach and will be a great addition to our coaching staff,” Dolphins coach Joe Philbin said in a statement released by the team. “Bill has been instrumental in helping players reach their full potential, as players and people, at both the college and professional level. He also has a proven track record of success working with a wide variety of offenses."
Foles led the NFL with a 119.2 passer rating in 2013, throwing 27 touchdown passes and two interceptions in 10 starts.
