When the Dolphins brought Bill Lazor aboard to be the new offensive coordinator, the question came up about how much Chip Kelly would be in his offense? Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald answered that question for us today.
Just before training camp, Lamar Miller met with LeSean McCoy for advice about Bill Lazor’s offense. http://t.co/dyXmpLy3RZ

Lazor told Miller that it would be a good idea for him to meet with LeSean McCoy, the Eagles running back who had arguably the best year among running backs in 2013. McCoy explained to Miller what to expect from this offense, the same one that turned McCoy into a top tier running back.
Everyone expected Miller to have to compete with Moreno for Miami’s starting job, but by the looks of things Lazor is confident that he can get big things from Miller. With a new offensive line and the defense no longer knowing what the play was going to be (Go-Go), the sky’s the limit for Miller, who also got support from San Fran running back Frank Gore during the offseason.
Last year, Miami’s offense was very vanilla and rarely played to a player’s strengths. With Bill Lazor in charge we could see three or four different players having a breakout year, starting with Lamar Miller.
