Following a season where his quarterback and unique formation faltered for the Dolphins, quarterbacks coach David Lee will leave Miami and join Ole Miss as their new offensive coordinator. ESPN's Chris Mortensen first reported the news.

The 2010 season was Lee's third with the Dolphins, as he helped bring the famed "Wildcat" offense to South Beach. This season, the "Wildcat" had just a 3.3 rushing average, the worst in Lee's three seasons.

QB Chad Henne showed flashes at times, but ultimately faltered when given opportunities to put the team on his back and tossed 18 interceptions.

Offensive coordinator Dan Henning parted ways with the organization last week.

The way we see it

Lee picks a good time to return to the SEC, where he spent time with Arkansas and played at Vanderbilt. The Dolphins likely will be doing an overhaul of the offensive coaching staff, and the club is in a lot of turmoil after last week's drama surrounding Tony Sparano's job.
