Now that their third-consecutive losing season is over, the Miami Dolphins have begun their search for a head coach.
Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland released a statement through the team that kicks off the search to replace Tony Sparano.
"Steve Ross and I have a plan in place that is designated to insure that we identify and interview an outstanding set of candidtes for the head coaching position. The process will be thorough, it will be in compliance with NFL policies, and provide the best possible result for the franchise.
"That search has begun and there is no designated timetable; it will be conducted in a manner that give us the greatest opportunity to hire the individual we feel is best suited to become the team's head coach. Steve and I are excited to embark on this process, and we are confident that it will result in the selection of an outstanding individual who will return the Dolphins to their long-time status as one of the most successful team in the league."
The Dolphins haven't been to the playoffs since 2008 and haven't won a playoff game since 2000. They've also had one winning season in the last six. So you can imagine they'll want to get this one right.
