The Miami Dolphins, according to my source, have a deal in principal with Jim Harbaugh and it will be announced sometime tomorrow following a minority interview (complain about the Rooney Rule all you want, I agree). Sparano has already been informed of the decision and that announcement will come later today.
The deal is reportedly going to be in the neighborhood of 6.8 to 7.2 million…he doesn’t know the exact amount that was finally agreed upon. He will be the highest paid NFL HC and his salary requirements started with the Pete Carroll number from Seattle last season that exceeded 6 million.
Sparano has been recently rumored, although I believe them to be unfounded, to possibly be heading to Michigan to coach the Wolverines. One of the reasons they say he has been hanging around. My source doesn’t believe it but stated he didn’t know one way or the other. He has also been rumored to have interest in UConn as well.
My other source has yet to confirm this information…so stay tuned.
