Stephen Ross must have had a wager placed that Tony Sparano would not be fired before Del Rio and Haley. Now that Haley was canned this morning, it was time for Sparano to go. Sparano, like Haley, looked like he was as good as gone. Then, the Dolphins started playing better and winning. It’s somewhat puzzling that he wasn’t fired at 0-7. The team rebounded, played hard, and won 4 of the next 5, and after the first bad performance in over a month, Ross decided he didn’t want to wait and see if Sparano pulled a “Norv.”
Miami is a potentially attractive opening, but a new coach has to deal with Ross and his mixed messages, and must find a quarterback.
