Miami Dolphins hire new QB coach who has a history coaching Tua Tagovailoa
The Miami Dolphins have remade their offensive coaching staff this offseason, and the latest move may go a long way toward keeping potential franchise QB Tua Tagovailoa happy.
The team announced that Charlie Frye would be its new quarterbacks coach. Frye was offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Central Michigan the past two years, but previously was Tagovailoa’s coach at the Elite 11 camp for the country’s top high school players. Some SEC fans may remember Frye as director of player personnel at Florida from 2015-17.
NFL Media analyst Bucky Brooks noted the significance of the relationship between the former Alabama QB and Frye.
“He has great chemistry with him and understands how to craft plays around his skills,” Brooks tweeted. “Don’t underestimate the value of that previous relationship and connection. Frye is one of the best teachers and communicators that I’ve been around. He is OUTSTANDING with young QBs and he simplifies the game in a way that makes it easy for them. A+ hire with Tua’s long-term development in mind.”
Frye played five seasons in the NFL for Cleveland (2005-07), Seattle (2008) and Oakland (2009) and started 23 games at quarterback.
