Dolphins fire Tony Sparano

By James Walker


The Miami Dolphins (4-9) became the second team Monday to fire their head coach. Tony Sparano was let go in his fourth season leading Miami.

It was the worst-kept secret in the NFL that Sparano would not be the coach after this season. But it was a mild surprise he was fired this week after the team was 4-2 in his last six games. Overall, Sparano was 29-32.

I will be back soon with more thoughts on the move.
