Things could have been a lot different for the Miami Dolphins if Wayne Huizenga had his way. In 2008 then owner Wayne Huizenga flew to Costa Rica in an attempt to lure Pete Carroll to Miami to succed Nick Saban.
The Dolphins were starting to turnaround but still lacked key pieces on both sides of the ball. Carroll was at the time the head coach at USC. Huizenga failed to lure Carroll who was nonetheless impressed with what Huizenga was offering.
Carroll was rumored to have been offered full control over the team including all personnel decisions. After Carroll turned down Huizenga, something Huizenga was not used to, the Dolphins owner hired Cam Cameron.
Cameron of course failed miserably in Miami and his once promising career in the NFL nose-dived after a stint as OC with the Ravens.
In 2010 Carroll would leave the college ranks and return to the NFL staying on the West Coast where he became the Seahawks head coach.
