I really don't get the move as I thought Barrett did a good job with Kenyan Drake, Jay Ajayi, and Williams. To me, I'd fire the OC play caller who abandoned the running game quickly in the 2nd half of games. Guess who needs an upgrade .. Gase as play caller.

The Miami Dolphins continue to make changes to the their coaching staff, particularly on offense, as running back coach Danny Barrett has been fired, a league source told The Miami Herald Thursday night.
In a move that is quite likely related, the team expects to soon interview former Denver Broncos running backs coach Eric Studesville, The Herald has confirmed. The Sporting News first reported Miami’s interest in Studesville.
Studesville’s availability is what moved Dolphins coach Adam Gase to consider releasing Barrett because he wants a coach that could upgrade the staff. The Dolphins finished 28th in points per game in 2016.
Gase tried to hire Studesville when he was forming his first staff in 2016 but was blocked from doing so by the Broncos. In that regard, Studesville was Gase’s first choice to be his running backs coach.
