Signs continue to point to the Dolphins landing Jim Harbaugh as their next head coach.
Tim Kawakami of the San Jose Mercury News has a source that says “all indications” are that Harbaugh will accept Miami’s huge offer, believed to be more than $7 million per season. Miami would reportedly go above $8 million per year if the 49ers upped their offer. (Translation: Harbaugh’s agent is playing this very well.)
“Not a done deal, but everything is pointing that way,” Kawakami said.
Meanwhile, Chris Mortensen of ESPN is reporting that some Dolphins coaches are packing their boxes at the team facility this morning. That does not include coach Tony Sparano, and its those coaches would be losing jobs even if Sparano stayed.
Still, this clumsy situation has to come to a conclusion soon. Dolphins owner Stephen Ross is taking deserved criticism for hanging his coach Tony Sparano out to dry.
