With Mike McDaniel the new head coach of the Miami Dolphins, all of the attention will now turn to quarterback Tua Tagovailoa.

Tagovailoa has been a hot topic of debate in South Florida for the last couple of years as fans are wondering if he can get the job done.

McDaniel seems to be high on Tagovailoa, per Peter Schrager of Good Morning Football.

"I spoke to Mike McDaniel this weekend. Every QB he’s ever worked with has had the best season of his career with him on staff. He’s bullish on Tua and is excited to maximize what he does best," Schrager said on Tuesday morning.

Now, this could be just coach-speak, but there's a chance that McDaniel truly likes what he sees in Tagovailoa. He's coming off his second season in the league and did show some signs of improvement.

Tagovailoa finished with 16 touchdown passes and 10 interceptions on 2,653 yards.

If McDaniel can find a new level in Tagovailoa, then the team won't have to go shopping for a new franchise quarterback.
