The 2019 Miami Dolphins season will be the franchise's 50th season in the National Football League, the 54th overall and their first under new head coach Brian Flores. The Dolphins will attempt to improve on their 7–9 record from last season and finish with a winning record for the first time since 2016, winning a playoff game since 2000 and to be the first team to play in the Super Bowl in their home stadium. For the first time since 2011, quarterback Ryan Tannehill won’t be on the roster, as he was traded to the Tennessee Titans on March 15, 2019. The trade will reunite Tannehill with long-time Dolphin Cameron Wake, who signed with Tennessee via free agency 4 days prior.

Offseason Coaching changeEdit

The Dolphins fired head coach Adam Gase on December 31, 2018, after the team missed the playoffs for a second-straight season and finished 2018 with a 7–9 record.[1] The Dolphins conducted multiple interviews, but were linked to New England Patriots linebackers coach and defensive play caller Brian Flores but had to wait to hire him until after the Patriots were out of the NFL playoffs due to league rules. On February 4, 2019, the day after Super Bowl LIII, the team announced Flores as their thirteenth head coach.[2] The Dolphins announced the majority of Flores' coaching staff on February 8, 2019, including Chad O'Shea as offensive coordinator, Patrick Graham as defensive coordinator, Danny Crossman as special teams coordinator, and Jim Caldwell as assistant head coach and quarterbacks coach.[3]
