    probably as early as tomorrow. oh well.

    and Detroit might want him as OC.

    edit: it's official. Cameron got fired.

    as for Miami's next coach....Tony Sparano, probably. current Dallas assistant head coach and o-line coach. apparently his mentality is the opposite of Cameron's. definitely a Parcells kinda guy.

    That is pretty stupid, how are you supposed to implement your system, get your personnel in place, turn a team around in one year.

    On top of that the Dolphins played hard all year from what I have seen/heard which speaks volumes for Cameron's efforts.

    This would be another example of why the Dolphins are such a bad organisation, they can't leave well enough alone.

    What is Cameron's mentality exactly?

    Judging from his almost winless season, he's "mentally" gone.

    Sparano is a lot like Parcells in that he's a no-nonsense guy who will shout and scream and belittle you if he has to, Cameron is the opposite. real calm, doesn't raise his voice much, etc

    also looks like Miami's new defensive coordinator is going to be Todd Bowles, current Cowboys secondary coach.

    which means good ole Dom Capers is going to be gone.

    Hey. Maybe Parcells will make Dom the new HC!

    That would be cool.

    Not for you, though.

    if it happens i'd prefer sooner rather than later. the GM is gone, the DC is gone, we desperately need a new ST coach.

    In light of a recent report about Gailey being a possibility for the 49ers next OC, I was curious, how was he as Miami's OC back in 2000?

    we probably had our best offense since Marino retired under Gailey. nothing exciting, but consistent. considering our QB was Jay Fiedler, our RB was Lamar Smith, and our leading receiver was Orande Gadsden, that's saying something. there was a small contingent of people who wanted Gailey to be Dolphins HC last year.

    PFT reporting that Cameron was informed last night that he's gone.

    I read that, but PFT doesn't exactly have the best sources. So it could be hogwash.

    yes but they get some things right well in advance too many times for me to ignore them.

    I wonder how it will be before the Tuna gives Chris Palmer a call to be the OC.
