Miami Dolphins Coaching Search: Running News Updates


This will be our running article on the Miami Dolphins head coaching search with all the latest rumors from Twitter, the local & national media, updates from my sources as well as others.  We will run this up until the time of any official announcement or when it becomes clear one will not be made.

Correction:  Earlier today I said that Sean Smith tweeted “Do your research on McCoy and Del Rio”.  I attributed that to Sean Smith the Dolphins CB however I have been alerted by a follower that Sean Smith did not say that someone else with a close name did.  My apologies to Smith and to anyone else who read what I wrote from him.  Simple mistake…;)

Break:  Time to take a break for the refresh button and pick my son up from school.

Dolphins have still not announced any form of press conference as of 1:30 this afternoon.  Mike McCoy according to Ben Volin of the Palm Beach Post was not seen at any of the airports although he does say he could have missed him.

Did you know:  To further instill excitement and make you want to run out and buy season tickets…Mike McCoy worked under Dan Henning.  Yes, that Dan Henning.

While we wait:  This site is getting an extreme makeover...I tried to run and hide but they caught me!  The entire FanSided Network is making a move to supply you with more and more content.  In a short week our site here on Phinphanatic.com will have a new look and feel.  Like everything, change will take a little getting used to.  For those of you following along with our updates today, you can see the new version of the site by visiting here and looking at our networks Chiefs site that was already updated.  Let me know your thoughts on the changes in the comments!

 QUOTE by McCoy:  Was watching a video of him prior to starting in Denver as the teams OC, towards the end of the video he said “it’s the QB’s football team”. McCoy will need to find a QB in Miami. You can watch the video here.

UPDATE:  Ross is in Miami.  Also, if you still think that Miami is a black eye franchise then consider that we are still getting knocked around by the media over all this HC stuff yet no one really cares what went on with Jacksonville or what is going on with the Buc’s, Raiders, and even to a degree Indy.  Why Miami?  Because it’s still is a top destination.

Update:  Non-HC information.  Jake Long has pulled out of the Pro-Bowl due to injuries…not unexpected, and the Rams and their new HC Jeff Fisher announced today that they will play at minimum 1 home game each year in England…how do you like that Jeffie?

 UPDATE:  Marc Kohn via Twitter is reporting that Ross has not landed in Miami stating his plane is still in the air.

So far this is what we know…updates will appear “above” this line…all are rumors at this point.

Stephen Ross is on a flight to Miami (may have already arrived)

Harvey Greene has not yet announced any requests for media to be at the facility today

Mike McCoy appears to be headed to Miami as well…but this only speculation

National media is predicting that McCoy has been offered the job.

  • RandyCarlson

    This is like a soap opera

  • Phinphanatic

    @RandyCarlson to put it mildly…LOL. Wonder if we can get an Emmy nomination for the team…LOL

  • ChrisLeeuw

    Awesome go-to place for the day…thanks brian

  • ChrisLeeuw

    Welp…if this ends up true here’s hoping McCoy can put together a good staff. I was kinda leaning toward Philbin though – mostly because a west coast offense would have been exciting.

  • RandyCarlson

    @Phinphanatic

    Ross should compensate you and the other writers for emotional and/or mental stress.

  • Txmedic5

    @tweetBmartin who did? Swore it was him

  • Txmedic5

    @tweetBmartin Thanks for that heads up…I corrected that on my site as well as a forum as well. Appreciate it!

  • Dviper2399

    WOW thats all I can say,..this owner & management are truely clueless, look how bad we are in stats & lets hire coaches with worse stats!! Just as we did with the OC last off-season. Philbin was obviously the better choice & had stats to back that up. Is Ross the owner from those Major League movies?? I am done unless we trade up for Luck you wont see me at any games.

    @Txmedic5 LOL no biggie, i saw someone said it to him, i think it was phinsrock
