- Miami Want Offense: Dolphins Hire Cam Cameron

Tell Chris your opinion.

For the Dolphins' sake, hopefully they've found the right guy. After several straight unsuccessful coaching tenures, the Miami Dolphins have named Cam Cameron as their next head coach, ending the team's two-week search for a head coach after Nick Saban abandoned the team. Cameron has spent the past five seasons as the San Diego Chargers' offensive coordinator.

It has been reported that Cameron signed a four-year deal with the Dolphins. Obviously, the Chargers will miss Cameron, who directed a high-powered offense this season in San Diego.

"Good for Cam," said Chargers head coach Marty Schottenheimer. "I think he'll be a very fine, winning NFL coach. He has done a terrific job for us, obviously. We're excited that he has been given this opportunity. I know that there's a lot of work for him to do, but he'll measure up to the task."

The Dolphins reportedly interviewed at least 12 other candidates for the job before settling on Cameron. Last week, former Atlanta Falcons coach Jim Mora Jr. was believed to have a leg up on the job. Cameron's first interview with the Dolphins came soon after Saban had quit, but the team was not permitted to interview him again until the Chargers were eliminated from the playoffs.

One of Cameron's primary goals in Miami will be to improve the offensive attack. The Dolphins only averaged 16.3 points per game this season, their lowest average since 1967. That was inexcusable, considering the Dolphins had players such as Ronnie Brown, Chris Chambers, and Randy McMichael. Cameron will have a big decision to make next season regarding the team's starting quarterback. Daunte Culpepper is still on the team's roster, but the Dolphins don't want to run into the same boat that they did with him earlier this season.
