This past off-season, the Miami Dolphins gave Tony Sparano a two-year extension despite clear indications that the team wanted somebody else leading the team. And now it looks like the Dolphins may not get a single win for their $6 million.
Despite having Sparano under contract for another year, the Dolphins met with Jim Harbaugh last winter before he eventually took the job with the San Francisco 49ers. This came after the Dolphins lost four of their final five games and blowing a shot at the playoffs. The Dolphins owners then felt it was necessary to reward Sparano with a two-year, $6 million extension.
And now the Dolphins are at it again. The front office has reportedly contacted people close to Bill Bowher in hopes that he will coach the team in 2012. The team is 0-7 since Sparano signed his extension. And Sparano has put his house up for sale.
If the Dolphins go winless this season, they may end up with Andrew Luck as their quarterback. But it will have cost the team $6 million for a coach they didn’t want.
