The Miami Dolphins 2015 season hasn't exactly gone like they would have hoped or expected it to.
With the team currently sitting on a 4-7 record through the first twelve weeks of the season, the Dolphins have undergone plenty of change - with Joe Philbin being fired and replaced by interim head coach Dan Campbell.
And Campbell made a pretty big decision of his own on Sunday by firing Miami's offensive coordinator Bill Lazor, a move that Ryan Tannehill seems very happy with.

According to a report from James Walker of ESPN.com, Tannehill is excited by the firing because he now has more of a say in the Dolphins offense.
“I’m just excited about being part of the game plan,” Tannehill revealed. “Working with the coaches Monday and [Tuesday], just being a part of the game-plan process and having my thoughts heard and kind of putting our heads together to create some of the things we want to do, it’s been fun so far.”
It's not often that you get players quite so publicly being happy after someone gets fired. But, if Tannehill feels like he actually has some control and input into the Dolphins O now then he must be ecstatic.
Judging by his quotes, the former Texas A&M star is thrilled.
“Well, it’s an adjustment,” he said. “So obviously there is some change. But I’m excited about the changes we’re making and the possibility about what we can do.”
We'll have to wait and see if the change actually makes any difference for a Dolphins team that are fighting for pride rather than a playoff place.
