Tony Sparano's job as Miami Dolphins coach is safe for at least two more weeks despite growing speculation about his future, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reported, citing a high-ranking NFL source.
The Dolphins fell to 0-4 with Sunday's 26-16 loss in San Diego and are riding a league-worst seven-game losing streak dating to last season.

His future beyond that Week 6 game could not be guaranteed.
Sparano has led the Dolphins to three straight wins over the Jets at the Meadowlands, with all three games decided by a touchdown or less.
