The Miami Dolphins have granted offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains permission to speak to other teams around the league to explore potential opportunities, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Rapoport noted Loggains is expected to become the offensive coordinator for the New York Jets, where he would reunite with the newly hired Adam Gase. Loggains was Gase's offensive coordinator in Miami in 2018, and the two were also on the Chicago Bears coaching staff together in 2015.

Loggains has more than a decade's worth of coaching experience in the NFL. He was a scouting assistant for the Dallas Cowboys back in 2005 and has served as the offensive coordinator for three teams Tennessee, Chicago and Miami.

In Loggains' first season in South Beach, the Dolphins ranked 31st in yards, 30th in passing, 18th in rushing and 26th in scoring.

The overall numbers may not have Jets fans eager to add Loggains to the coaching staff, but it's important to note Miami's starting quarterback Ryan Tannehill (shoulder) was limited to just 11 games, leaving backup Brock Osweiler to make five starts.

Even with an injury at the quarterback position, the Dolphins managed to hang in the AFC playoff picture for much of the season. They ultimately fell short of the postseason, however, by finishing 7-9.

A Loggains hire would just be the latest addition to New York's coaching staff. Last week, the Jets hired former Cleveland Browns interim head coach Gregg Williams as their defensive coordinator.
