Tony Sparano will be out as coach of the Miami Dolphins at the end of the season.
The Miami Herald reported that while Sparano will be dismissed, general manager Jeff Ireland is expected to return.
There was speculation that Sparano's job could be saved after the Dolphins won four of five games following an 0-7 start to the season. The lone defeat in that span was a one-point loss at Dallas.
Miami took a step back Sunday, watching the Philadelphia Eagles score 24 unanswered points in the second quarter of a 26-10 loss.
The DOlphins went 11-5 in Sparano's first season but followed it up with back-to-back 7-9 campaigns and are 4-9 this season.
