After the Dolphins were bounced from playoff contention on Sunday afternoon, team owner Stephen Ross said that he would “look at everything” before deciding how to move forward toward the 2014 season.
Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports that two sources have told him that changes of “some significance” are coming for the Dolphins. There were no specifics about what kind of changes, but that they could include the departure of General Manager Jeff Ireland and will “definitely” include changes to the coaching staff.
Nothing appears to be ruled out, although Salguero considers the ouster of coach Joe Philbin to be an unlikely development in Miami.
It would be surprising if the offense weren’t a major focal point for change in Miami. Offensive coordinator Mike Sherman never got the offensive line sorted out and never found an effective, balanced and consistent way to move the ball for a team that scored just seven points in losses to the Bills and Jets to end the season.
