Miami Football is reportedly on the verge of hiring Dolphins legend Jason Taylor for an off-field role for Mario Cristobal’s staff.
Hailing from Miami, Mario Cristobal knows all about the people who matter most to the city.
Jason Taylor is one of those figures as an absolute giant in the history of the city and its sports teams.
Taylor is a Pro Football Hall of Famer who has spent most of his career harassing opposing quarterbacks for the Dolphins. Now he will help develop the next generation of Miami soccer stars.

Cristobal will hire Taylor as an off-field analyst for the Hurricanes this season. according to Gaby Urrutia of InsideTheU.
This will be Taylor’s first coaching opportunity in the collegiate ranks. Since retiring in 2011, he has been involved in broadcasting and other ventures.
He started at St. Thomas Aquinas High School in Fort Lauderdale as a defensive line coach and rose to defensive coordinator in 2020. With three consecutive titles at 7A level, he’s clearly done well in the role.
Taylor isn’t the only NFL star who will help Cristobal turn Miami back into a college football powerhouse. Ed Reed is also under the new coaching staff in an off-field role with the Hurricanes.
Cristobal has been winning the off-season with his signings so far. It doesn’t get much more popular than Jason Taylor and Ed Reed in Miami. They may not be able to coach players directly on the field, but their contribution should be invaluable to the program. They won’t hurt recruitment either.
The question is whether Cristobal can convert these attitudes into results. The Hurricanes have had just one 10-win season since 2003.
