The Tony Sparano watch in Miami remains a week-to-week activity.
Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports that a loss to Denver at home this week will make Sparano’s status “subject to re-evaluation.”
A “close associate” of Ross told Jackson that the owner was “very frustrated” after Monday night’s loss to the Jets. But he’s been advised that in-season coaching changes don’t usually help and the players on the team widely support Sparano.
Here’s perhaps the most disheartening line for Dolphins fans in the article:
“Ross believes switching to an interim coach (potentially defensive coordinator Mike Nolan) would not boost ticket sales for the rest of the season,” Jackson writes.
Gee, ya think? And that’s what’s driving this decision?
Ross should tell his close associates to zip it. Articles like this aren’t helping matters.
The report makes it clear that Sparano’s status is week-to-week at this point. We hope for his sake that a “home” loss to the Broncos on Tim Tebow day in Miami isn’t the way Sparano goes out.
