Dolphins Interviewing Eric Studesville for RB's Coach Job



Earlier this season as we all know our Dolphins made one of the most controversial trades this season. They traded running back Jay Ajayi to the Philadelphia Eagles for a 4th round draft pick. After that trade the Dolphins plan was to split reps between Damien Williams and Kenyan Drake. Shortly after the trade Williams suffered a season ending injury leaving the starting role to former Alabama running back Kenyan Drake. Drake strived in the games he played but even after that Gase decided to part ways with two year RB's coach Danny Barrett who was one of the main pieces in turning Jay Ajayi into a Pro Bowler in 2016.


So now in the offseason the Miami Dolphins are on the hunt for a running back’s coach. The latest candidate is Former Broncos Assistant Head Coach/Running Backs Coach Eric Studesville. Studesville has 21 years of coaching experience and is well known around the league which is a good thing. But it looks like Studesville is looking for bigger things as he did just recently interview for the head coaching job with the New York Giants. But the likelihood of Studesville getting the job is slim to none because of the possibility a bigger name and more proven coach will land that position. Studesville hasn't worked with very many talented running backs in his past besides CJ Anderson but if he takes this job in Miami he will have the opportunity to hopefully make Kenyan Drake become a great running back.


Studesville has worked with Adam Gase before as they were both on the staff with the Broncos as the same time. We will hopefully know soon if Studesville will becoming to Miami as their next running backs coach.
