Earlier this week, the thought was that the Bills would retain most of their coaching staff after vacant jobs around the NFL started to get filled.

First, offensive coordinator Brian Daboll did not land either job he interviewed for, which included the head coach duties for the Jets and Chargers. Then Buffalo quarterbacks coach Ken Dorsey, connected to the Lions and Seahawks, seemed good to go for the Bills’ 2021 season as those vacant OC jobs were filled.

Further good news came late Wednesday as the Texans decided not to hire Bills defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier as their head coach.

But wait, there’s more?

According to a report in the Sun Sentinel from the Senior Bowl, there’s a new potential team to monitor in terms of Dorsey: The Dolphins.

Specifically, the report says that the interest in Dorsey, like interest around the NFL in Daboll, comes because of the development of Buffalo’s Josh Allen. However, the interesting part is that the report states that some in the league think Dorsey is more of the reason for Allen’s improvements than Daboll, which could be why the Dolphins are interested.

Perhaps speculation, perhaps truth. It’s something that’s likely unlikely to ever be discovered, but it is an intriguing philosophy nonetheless. Reportedly a knock on Dorsey currently is his lack of experience calling plays… which really isn’t even a report. When Daboll was connected to other jobs, Dorsey was pegged the most-likely in-house replacement by some, but the fact that he has no experience calling plays was a concern to those doing so.

Former Bills head coach Chan Gailey was previously the Dolphins’ OC last season but stepped down following 2020. That’s the potential job Dorsey is connected to with the Dolphins.
