UPDATE: The Dolphins hired former NY Giants DC Bill Sheridan as a LB coach. The position itself, outside or inside, has not been determined. Sheridan was fired after one season with the Giants.
Normally, there is not an issue with getting content up on this site, especially when it comes to breaking news. On the surface, it could be suggested that we have been “slacking” however, the surface isn’t always as it seems. Patrik had his computer crash on him and now, well, it’s my turn. I’m actually typing this on my iphone…not an easy task. Still, when you have a responsibility, you do what you have to do and for the Miami Dolphins, this young off-season has already begun…and so have the changes.
The Phins yesterday terminated the contract of defensive co-ordinator Paul Pasqualoni which now leaves a gaping hole in the coaching staff. With coach “P” gone, the question turns to who replaces him? Romeo Crennel the ex-Browns HC is available but he seems to be headed to KC. Al Groh maybe? A Parcells favority, Groh is 65 years old so how long does he want to continue this?
Either way, the Phins will need to address the spot soon so that they can start implementing a new system and decisions can be made on assistant coaches like the LB’s coach who left for Virginia.
The loss of coach “P” didn’t bother me honestly. The Phins didn’t exactly have a stellar unit on that side of the ball. What does kind of bug me is the loss of Miami CEO Bryan Weidemeir. Some will argue that he really didn’t do much as the CEO who last year saw his position relagated to head of football operations and special events.
Weidemeir had been an employee of the Phins for 30 years. He came across as a class act and in my opinion the Phins lost a piece of their history. He has joined the Cleveland Browns.
For now, that’s all I got but there is a lot more going on and although the season is over for us fans, the season has just begun for the Dolphins. Stay tuned to Phinphanatic.om for more updates as they occur…or at least when we writers get some decent CPU’s that won’t crash on us…sorry!
