Miami Dolphins coach Brian Flores confirmed Wednesday that rookie Tua Tagovailoa will be the team’s starting quarterback moving forward.
Flores said the Dolphins feel that starting Tagovailoa is what’s best for the team, citing the rookie’s performance in meetings, walk-throughs and practices.
“He’s gotten more comfortable — accuracy, decision-making have been good in practice. … We’re comfortable and confident that he’ll be able to competitive in those games when that time comes,” Flores said.
Flores also said he was disappointed that he didn’t address the QB change with the team before ESPN and other outlets reported Tuesday that Tagovailoa would replace popular veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick.
Flores said he will talk to the team and apologize about that, noting it was not how he wanted the players to find out.
