Dolphins owner tells Ireland that Carl Peterson is not taking over

Dolphins owner Stephen Ross has a close relationship with former Chiefs executive Carl Peterson, which has led to plenty of speculation that Peterson could eventually take Bill Parcells’ old role.

That’s not going to happen, at least according to Ross.

Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports that Ross has told “various people” including Dolphins G.M. Jeff Ireland that Peterson will not be taking Parcells’ old spot.  Ireland had his contract amended recently so that he only reported to Ross.

As Florio pointed out last week, however, Ireland’s job security is only as good as the Dolphins’ record.  The organization could still cut bait with Ireland after this season if things went south for the 3-2 Dolphins.  Ireland’s contract runs through 2011.

    So, I read this correctly, you’re saying that something is not going to happen…unless it does.

    Peterson better stay far, far away from my Fins. If Ross ever brings him in to run the Dolphins, I’m done…

    What does the owner know about this, I mean half of the folks on this site say its a fact that Peterson is talking over, I wonder where they got that idea, perhaps from there ass. Bill

    I’ve never been a fan of the Dolphins but I would really hate to see King Carl end up in control there.
    Her would set the team back big time.

    If you are a Fins fan you better hope that Peterson doesn’t take control. He ran both the Saints and Chiefs into the ground. You’d be next.
