Dolphins great DC Fangio is one and done in ’23

The Miami Dolphins and defensive coordinator Vic Fangio have parted ways after just one season together.

Rumour has it that Fangio will move back to Philadelphia to be near his family, and with the prospect of the Eagles dc job on the horizon after Philly sacked Sean Desai.

“I want to thank Vic for his contributions in 2023,” Dolphins head coach Mike McDaniel said in a statement. “When we assessed the season, it became apparent that this was the best path forward for all parties involved.

Dolphins needed consistency, stability

“Now we turn our focus to 2024 and beyond with urgency as we identify the best candidate to lead our defense moving forward. We remain steadfastly committed to the development of our players and to building a winning team with sustained success.”

While the decision may be mutual, cracks had been rumoured in the relationship between McDaniel and Fangio. Fangio has been getting much more favourable press than McDaniel of late, and there was a rumour of personalities with both McDaniel and some of the defensive players.

The Dolphins now have the job of finding their third defensive coordinator in three seasons as they will look to try and be competitive with a roster in won-now mode. Current linebackers coach Anthony Campanile has been tipped as a possible successor, but his lack of experience may hold him back this cycle given the teams aspirations.
