The Miami Dolphins may be looking for a new head coach in the near future. They also may bring back Tony Sparano, the man who led them to an 11-5 record in 2008, but has since gone a disappointing 14-18.
At his press conference today, Sparano said that he has a meeting set with owner Stephen Ross. It is unlcear when the meeting will take place, but it will likely be before Wednesday.
If we were betting on if a change were coming in Miami, we would guess it is. As late as last night, the Giants and Texans were rumored to be letting go their head coaches. BUT, owners of each team came forward and vowed to bring their head honchos back. Tony Sparano received no such endorsement from Dolphins owner Stephen Ross. Now, Ross’ travel plans could be the reason. He wasn’t in the country when the Dolphins were getting smoked on Sunday by the New England Patriots. Maybe that’s why there hasn’t been any news yet.
Or maybe Ross is evaluating the situation before making a decision. Shouldn’t be too hard to evaluate consecutive 7-9 finishes. Shouldn’t be too hard to evaluate the situation if there are 1 or 2 Super Bowl Championship coaches waiting for a chance at the Dolphins job. This much is clear, we should know a lot more about the state of the Dolphins and the future of Tony Sparano by Wednesday.
