    Signs say Sparano hiring imminent

    [size=13pt]Signs say Sparano hiring imminent[/size]

    The Dolphins brass wined and dined Tony Sparano on Tuesday evening in the Cowboys assistant's second interview with the team. Sparano could be hired as head coach as early as Wednesday.

    The handshakes and smiles were taking place everywhere as the valet driver at Fort Lauderdale's upscale Grille 66 pulled around the Toyota Sequoia owned by Dolphins president Bryan Wiedmeier....

    Hopefully Dungy stays put, the Dolphins hire Sparano, and Leslie Frazier stays put with the Vikings.

    Poor Jerry Jones.........

    Since Parcells left the rats are leaving faster than the ship is sinking and most of them are going with the Tuna.

    Gonna be fun to watch the Tuna buy the grocieries for once.

    [size=14pt]Frazier downplays chance of replacing Dungy[/size]
    http://www.sportingnews.com/yourturn/viewtopic.php?t=337352
    When Leslie Frazier watched the defending Super Bowl champs lose over the weekend, it hurt a little bit.

    Though Frazier is Minnesota's defensive coordinator, he is only one season removed from coaching defensive backs and serving as a special assistant to head coach Tony Dungy in Indianapolis. Frazier remains a friend of Dungy's, and they spoke on Sunday night after the Colts lost to the Chargers.

    The possibility of replacing Dungy, however, did not come up in the conversation. Frazier said they talked about the emotion of the 28-24 defeat, but not about the future of his former boss. Indianapolis clearly wants Dungy back, but at age 52 he will contemplate retirement before making a decision about returning.

    The 48-year-old Frazier succeeded Mike Tomlin, who left after one season in Minnesota to become Pittsburgh's head coach. Frazier has already interviewed for Miami's head coaching vacancy...

    The worst kept secret in the NFL is coming to fruition ... finally.

    FOX Sports has learned that the Dolphins have tabbed Dallas assistant coach Tony Sparano as their new head coach, replacing the fired Cam Cameron.

    Dolphins officials this morning phoned the other candidates who interviewed and informed them of the team's decision...

    Tuna's reeling in his buddies.


    But seriously, he's been successful wherever he's been...and he's had good teams (Giants, NE, Jets, 'Boys). When he was HC, he had a knack of hiring extremely competent assistants. I agree it will be fun to see how he approaches the game now that's in the buyer's seat. (One thing we can be sure of is an emphasis on defensive players.)

    That makes me happy (Jerry not smiling).

    That's what Jerry gets for trying to get coaches to leave their team (falcons) and go to college
