Poll Friday: Miami's next coach?

Our latest "Poll Friday" is a special one for suffering Miami Dolphins fans.

The question: Who do you want to be the team's next head coach in 2012?

Current Dolphins coach Tony Sparano is on a very hot seat in Miami after losing nine games in a row. Barring a historic turnaround, he will not make it beyond this season. Sparano even put his South Florida home on the market, although he said it wasn't related to his job status.

Dolphins owner Stephen Ross has deep pockets, and he will be willing to spend on the best candidate. Should Ross go top shelf to land an A-list candidate like Bill Cowher or Jon Gruden?

What about veteran coach Jeff Fisher? He had a lengthy run with the Tennessee Titans and is one of the top names on the market next year.

Should Miami go "other," which can be the assistant route? Top assistants like Rob Ryan and Perry Fewell have been mentioned as future candidates for head-coaching positions. Maybe there is another name you like out there for Miami.
