After two seasons as the Chicago Bears' offensive coordinator, it seems Dowell Loggains is set to move on to greener pastures.
In each of the two seasons that Loggains has run the Bears' offense, the team has ranked in the bottom five in terms of points scored and were 30th in the league in yards just this year.
The Chicago offense has had a lot of continuity issues to overcome in that time, which may speak to why the it has had such a hard time finding success.
For the Dolphins' sake, they sure must hope that's the case.

Former OC Clyde Christensen likely to remain with the team and transition to another role.
Miami lost their starting QB, Ryan Tannehill, before the year even started, pulled Jay Cutler out of retirement at the last minute to lead the team, and former OC Clyde Christensen helped turn that into a 6-10 season for Miami.
Given the circumstances, it'd be hard to necessarily say Christensen did a poor job, but the Dolphins certainly had higher expectations for themselves coming off a season in which they went 10-6 and made a playoff appearance.
We'll find out soon enough whether Loggains can be the answer to all their problems. At the very least, he's already got a relationship with Miami head coach Adam Gase, who overlapped with Loggains on the offensive staff in Chicago.
