Miami Dolphins coach Mike McDaniel ripped on Tua Tagovailoa’s concussion

Sometimes even a “dream job” can turn into a nightmare. Happens all the time. But it happens way too frequently to the man occupying the biggest office among Miami Dolphins coaches.

Not only was Mike McDaniel living that dream, but things could not have started better. Players love him. He’s eccentric. It’s funny. It’s authentic. It’s cool. He’s the “mad scientist.” He’s not Brian Flores or Adam Gase.

And, he was winning while doing something no one else could, developing quarterback Tua Tagovailoa. The national media was hooked.

That all changed during Week 4 of his first year on the job following a much-celebrated victory over the Buffalo Bills. Not the players loving him part. That remains. And he’s still the same innovative, cool guy. But the 39-year-old who looks like you’d run into him at the skatepark is no longer the national media darling.
