It’s official: The Dolphins announced they have agreed to terms with Mike McDaniel to make the former 49ers offensive coordinator their new head coach.

McDaniel and Cowboys offensive coordinator Kellen Moore were finalists for the job, with both interviewing over the past two days.

McDaniel has spent much of his career working for Kyle Shanahan. He was a Texans offensive assistant from 2006-08 and an offensive assistant under Shanahan in Washington from 2011-2012 before becoming receivers coach in 2013. He followed Shanahan to the Browns in 2014 as the team’s receivers coach. Then, he was an offensive assistant for Shanahan from 2015-16 in Atlanta before becoming the 49ers run game coordinator when Shanahan became San Francisco’s head coach.
