WASHINGTON (CBSDC) - Kyle Shanahan will not land on his feet in Miami.

The Dolphins announced the hiring of Bill Lazor, previously the Eagles quarterbacks coach, as offensive coordinator, on Wednesday.

Shanahan, the Redskins offensive coordinator for four years prior to being fired on Dec. 30 (along with his father, Mike), interviewed for the vacancy in Miami last Friday, created when the Dolphins fired Mike Sherman.

He was once believed to be a high-valued commodity, and genius playcaller before arriving in Washington. Shanahan had served as the Houston Texans offensive coordinator for two seasons, prior to following his father to the nation’s capital. He’s also held the wide receivers and quarterbacks coaching positions in Houston.

Offensive coordinator positions remain vacant in Baltimore, Cleveland, Detroit, Minnesota, and Tennessee.

The 34-year-old Shanahan faces a quickly shriveling job market, with coordinator vacancies having been filled with the Giants and Chargers in the past 24 hours alone.
