First off, here at Phins Phocus we would like to wish all the best for Tony Sparano in the future as he was a great man and someone you could respect, unfortunately he was a pretty bad NFL head coach.

We have lived through the fist pump, through the conservative play and really a complete lack of understanding how to manage a football game however Tony Sparano was still able to get his players to believe and fall in love with his style of coaching.

However it is time to move on as at the end of the day the Dolphins record under Tony Sparano says it all. Whether the players loved him or not it is simply unacceptable to have 3 straight losing seasons and to start a season 0-7.

Its now time for the Dolphins organization to turn the page and go on a search for their new head coach. A list coaching options like Gruden, Fisher and Cowher will be brought up and then you will have your college head coaches like Les Miles and the select few of young hot coordinators. The word experience was brought up in the Dolphins press conference by Jeff Ireland and at the end of the day I believe that is the route they will go.

However it is important to note that Jeff Irelands job appears to be safe which could hinder the Dolphins search and make them a less attractive coaching option.

Lets hope for a better future for our Phins

Phins Up

Adios Tony ! Be well !

Ps Jeff Ireland better up his game, because so far he has been a very lame GM to say the least.
