The Miami Dolphins' performance this season has certainly turn heads around the league. Miami's made major strides on offense, in particular, with third-year quarterback Tua Tagovailoa leading one of the NFL's best units.

Now this success could lead to one Dolphins coach being poached in the offseason.

NFL insider Josina Anderson reports QB coach and passing game coordinator Darrell Bevell is "gaining momentum" as a head coaching candidate. With two HCs already fired in 2022 and several more on the hot seat, teams are already eyeing potential successors.

Bevell hasn't officially held the role of head coach during his long career, but he has served on an interim basis twice. He went 1-4 with the Detroit Lions in 2020 after taking over from the fired Matt Patricia, then was thrust into interim duties again the following year for the Jacksonville Jaguars (1-3 in four games).

Bevell's offensive background has been on full display this season in Miami. Tagovailoa has already set a career high with 18 passing touchdowns, and he's set to smash his passing yard mark with 2,265 yards in just his first eight games.

After helping Tagovaioa take the next step and previously helming a Seattle Seahakws offense that went to back-to-back Super Bowls, Bevell will certainly draw some looks from teams in need of a change this offseason.
