Dolphins Hire Sparano As Head Coach

Tony Sparano, who had been the Dallas Cowboys' assistant head coach, accepted a job offer today as head coach for the Miami Dolphins. The Dolphins have repeatedly tapped Dallas talent since the arrival of Bill Parcells. Former Cowboys assistant David Lee was hired as quarterbacks' coach, and on Tuesday, Brian Gaine was hired as assistant director of player personnel after three years as the Cowboys' assistant director of pro scouting. This is just another example of Parcells dismantling the Dolphins so a new and improved team can rise from its ashes. In many sports analysts' eyes, there is too much turnover in Miami's front office and coaching positions. But then again, desperate times call for desperate measures, and the Dolphins are a desperate team. When asked about whether or not he thinks he's up to the challenge of being head coach of the Dolphins, Sparano states, "I'm prepared. I'm confident in myself." I think we all have confidence Sparano can improve one of the worst teams in football history. How can they get any worse?
