Dolphins fire Mike Sherman

Mike Sherman AP

Mike Sherman is out as offensive coordinator in Miami.

Dolphins coach Joe Philbin announced today that he has fired Sherman after two years on the job.

“I would like to thank Mike for his contributions to the Miami Dolphins,” Philbin said in a statement distributed by the team. “Mike has been a mentor to me throughout my coaching career, dating back to 1979. He is a man of great integrity, dedicated to his family, his team, his players and his profession. On behalf of the entire Miami Dolphins organization I want to wish Mike and his family the very best in the future.”

It must have been a tough decision for Philbin, who has long considered Sherman a close friend. (The two first met when Sherman was Philbin’s high school English teacher and assistant football coach, and Sherman got Philbin his first coaching job, as a graduate assistant at Tulane in 1984.) But this was a decision that had been expected, as the Dolphins’ offense under-performed this season. Players on the Dolphins reportedly wanted Sherman out, and now Sherman is out.

    Give Dolphins fans an early Christmas present and fire Ireland too!

    Contrast of loyalty:

    Tennessee: “You fire your assistant coaches or you are fired.” “Ok, then fire me”.

    Miami: “”You fire your assistant coaches or you are fired.” “Consider it done. Mike, you are outta here.”

    I could use him here in Wisconsin. He’d have to bring his own shovel to help me dig in the trenches, and his own needles and thread, though.

    Mike, Mike, Mike, Mike, Mike……what day is it Mike?? It’s getting Fired Day!!! Woot Woot!!

    Next on the chopping block, Jeff Ireland.

  7. sod61 says: Jan 6, 2014 1:53 PM

    One thing I have not understood is tannehill would always say go-go for a run and go for a pass(even play action). I am no expert on football and would never claim to be but this seemed liked tipping your plays to the defense, especially in the case of a play action pass. That has to be on the offensive coordinater. That’s like a pitcher in baseball tipping his pitches imao. Musings of a Dolphin fan.

  8. 8drinkminimum says: Jan 6, 2014 1:54 PM

    Good first move but not enough. Go get a better GM, Pioli anyone, and let the person evaluate Philbin and staff now or in a make or break 2014 season.

    Ireland has hit on some great picks from 4th round thru undrafted free agents but has fared miserably in rounds one thru three. The Martin/Incognito mess just masked continued failure to field a top notch offensive line.

    For a guy whos not even sixty he sure does preach the football philosophy of somebody twenty years older than him. Good coach and his legacy will live on through disciples like Bo Pelini and Sylvester Croon.
    But now if I may ask you to consider the New Orleans Saints who, in Sean Payton, have one of the five longest tenured coaches in the NFL. Who through seven seasons has had the most successful debut in NFL history. What do the Saints get that the Dolphins do not?
    Well, big road wins for starters and the list goes on and on

    Philbin you cold mean man. Well done !

  12. mparmelee says: Jan 6, 2014 1:57 PM

    Bring in Mike Shula as Asst H/C and OC.

  13. haywoodjablomee says: Jan 6, 2014 2:00 PM

    Ireland just HAS to be Ross’ son-in-law.

  14. thegreatgabbert says: Jan 6, 2014 2:01 PM

    Sherman’s tank.

  15. promickey says: Jan 6, 2014 2:02 PM

    Wow what took so long! This guy mishandled just about everything on the offense; he gave bad advise on Tannehill as a NFL QB, simplified the offense so defensive coordinators had their way in stopping the Dolphin’s offense and was predictable with all of his play calling.

  16. chapmanb2014 says: Jan 6, 2014 2:03 PM

    1.) A draft class that looks like it is going to produce 0 impact players.
    2.) An offensive line left in shambles despite spending money and draft picks the past 5 years.
    3.) Over 100 million in guaranteed $ spent last off season

    This team was 8-8 and in my eyes has more holes than they did last off season by far. Why in the world has Ireland kept his job? He should have been terminated in the 4th quarter of the Jets game. Ireland knows his job is on the line and is going to spend like crazy this off season to try and save his job. These decisions could set Miami back for years.

  17. diehardfootballfan says: Jan 6, 2014 2:04 PM

    Is that it????? Come on now! Gotta get rid of the OL coach & Ireland. Come on Ross……are you brain dead? Find a QB coach who can figure out why Tanny can’t throw more then 10 yards from the line. Geezzzzzz, the team management is a joke.

  18. aldante66 says: Jan 6, 2014 2:06 PM

    If cutting Sher saves the team so be it. The Packers need to get rid of a third of their losers and find people who can actually play football without slipping on a bar of soap.

  19. grantsbuds says: Jan 6, 2014 2:06 PM

    Finger should be pointed squarely at Ireland.
    Example:
    Philbin runs the WCO.
    Wallace is a square peg in the WCO’s round hole.
    I think Ireland asked Dez the questions he did cuz he be looking for his Daddy.

  20. thewizardofbs says: Jan 6, 2014 2:07 PM

    After this news bars all over South Florida are putting on extra staff for happy hour. Many have ordered extra liquor and beer so they don’t run out.

  21. Patskrieg dot com says: Jan 6, 2014 2:07 PM

    Can we all finally put to rest the idea that 2 people working together in college automatically means success in the pros? I heard about this psychic connection between Sherman and Tannehill for the last 2 years until the final week of the season while Miami phoned in the 27th ranked offense in the NFL BOTH YEARS.

    Life is just not that simple.

  22. mackie66 says: Jan 6, 2014 2:08 PM

    Sherman was hired by whom ? Philbin. This two game collapse was a total team effort, not just one team that didn’t play well, the entire 53 man roster quit. And thats on Philbin.
    With Ireland and Philbin once again at the rudder of this leaky ship I don’t see anything but mediocre .500 teams coming out of Davie Fla for the foreseeable future, which is all they’ve had for the past 10 yrs. I don’t think Philbin/Ireland would know talent if it sneaked up and bit ‘em on the ass.
    Ireland trades up to take the third pk of the first rd. Dion Jordan who by most accounts the best young pass rusher extant. Philbin plays Jordan about 16 snaps a game, hardly enough playing time to wear out a pair of socks. When Jordan did play, he did a real nice job and had a couple of sacks/hurries, etc. Well who missed the boat, Philbin or Ireland?
    Food for thought,,,,,

  23. jc327 says: Jan 6, 2014 2:08 PM

    Might as well quit with the #Fireland crap. Jeff Ireland isn’t going anywhere, folks.

  26. chris6523 says: Jan 6, 2014 2:13 PM

    What a bad decade for Sherman!!

    10 Years ago, he was the GM and Head Coach in Green Bay. In’04, he loses the GM Title. In ’05, he gets fired as head coach. In ’11, he gets fired as head coach at A and M. Now, he gets fired as OC in Miami. How much further down the food chain is the dude going to go?

  27. wisconsinhillfolk says: Jan 6, 2014 2:15 PM

    It’s time to put Grandmama in a home.

  28. jbell75 says: Jan 6, 2014 2:16 PM

    that’s gonna be the big shake up! Got to think Ross will ride this out for another year. Phins will probably finish worse or same as this year next year, but by then they will be a mess financially like chapmanb2014 said. So be prepared for a long time of being really bad….

  29. pftfan says: Jan 6, 2014 2:16 PM

    Next up: naming Dion Jordan team captain.

  30. realfootballfan says: Jan 6, 2014 2:17 PM

    They’ve outgrown him. Some guys are just starter coordinators. Cam Cameron is another guy like this, and he’s much better at designing offenses and calling plays than Sherman. It kind of would help too if the offensive background coach who’s never called plays could have stepped in there when the offense wasn’t producing at various points this year, but I guess Philbin is an offensive minded coach in title only.

  31. mrfrostyj says: Jan 6, 2014 2:17 PM

    Chud back to Miami would be perfect. That guy has gotten some pro bowl play out of some pretty average offenses.

  32. lifeistoughtrustmeimadolphinsfan says: Jan 6, 2014 2:20 PM

    I’d tell Sherman go deep but Tannehill would just under-throw him too…

  33. nikeair497 says: Jan 6, 2014 2:20 PM

    Dolphins have the best salary cap situation in the league and will be near 30mil in free space again this year. Where do you people come up with this salary cap hell nonsense? hahahaha

  34. laxcoach37 says: Jan 6, 2014 2:21 PM

    Thank you… Sherman SUCKED!

    @sod61
    That was a good point of the Tannehill “Go, Go” snap count run vs pass early on, but I started tracking this from the Ravens (Game 5) and on and that was not true. The playcalling was predictable nonetheless and that is why we are all thrilled with Sherman getting the boot (not bootleg as he should have run everygame about 10 times). Pun-intended.

  35. emmac13 says: Jan 6, 2014 2:22 PM

    Norv Turner I believe is a better OC than Chud. Turner to South Beach.

  36. wannstache says: Jan 6, 2014 2:24 PM

    This will fix nothing. Sherman wasn’t a true OC, as Philbin was always telling him what to call. Likewise, Sherman wasn’t responsible for years of poor drafting and free-agency moves. Nothing will be fixed, but things may well get worse. This is a cowardly move that Ross thinks will appease the fans. Shame on Philbin too, for throwing his mentor under the bus.

  37. ma5terbla5t3r says: Jan 6, 2014 2:27 PM

    In all seriousness this guy would be a perfect fit for Washington. He’s the Placater in Chief. He ran the Packers into the ground with one horrible free agent and draft pick after another…all to satiate Prince Favre and his family. Sherman seems well suited to do nothing other than making Snyder happy.

  38. sndmn331 says: Jan 6, 2014 2:27 PM

    Definite fall from grace for this guy.. Used to the head coach/gm of the Packers. Now he can’t even cut it as a college head coach or a nfl coordinator.

    ____________________________________
    Miami is in great salary cap position which is why they should hire a new GM now. Ireland is going to be desperate and overspend this offseason. Ireland was supposed to bring 1 thing to the table for Miami. He was supposed to be a very good talent evaluator and strong in the draft. He is way over rated as a scout. So why are they keeping him? Must be his great people skills.

  40. laxcoach37 says: Jan 6, 2014 2:31 PM

    @nikeaire497

    You are (nearly) correct. The Dolphins are 4th best in Cap $ Space. They have $32.8M. We are not in Cap Hell at all, but rather lackluster playmaker and coaching Hell instead. My biggest fear and I am sure all of ours… is Ireland making more bad FA signing, wrong player contract retentions and no impact drafting. Get rid of this guy already before he takes us from mediocre to really bad.

  41. notoriousbri says: Jan 6, 2014 2:31 PM

    guy calls 4 plays all year. never runs the ball in the second half unless the Fins are up 2 scores.

    treats 10-0 deficit like its 35-0

    mike Wallace deep, tannehill roll out.. Daniel Thomas dive, lamar miller off tackle.

    running only on run downs.

    BAD OC Mike, GOOD FIRE

  42. xpensivewinos says: Jan 6, 2014 2:33 PM

    So Ross will keep these two worthless losers in place for another year………..why?

    It’s going to be another pathetic draft and more mind-numbingly stupid decisions in free agency to set the team back even further…….and we’ve seen all we need to see from Philbin, other than a pulse.

    The Dolphins schedule is brutal next season and these clowns couldn’t lead the team into the playoffs when all they had to do was beat Buffalo or the Jets.

    How can Ross continue to be so pathetic? It would appear after six years, the only reason he bought the Dolphins was to provide a place for Jeff Ireland to work.

  43. justafanofitall says: Jan 6, 2014 2:33 PM

    Could never figure out why he was hired in the first place. When in Green Bay they had their worst years on offense when he was calling the plays.

  44. cobaltdriver says: Jan 6, 2014 2:34 PM

    A former Packer I look for Ziggy to be gassing up the jet and going to get Sherman..

  45. eatitfanboy says: Jan 6, 2014 2:44 PM

    Sherman had to go. He was doing a terrible job of evaluating and drafting players. And he way overpaid for a one-dimensional reciever in free agency.

    Oh, wait. He didn’t do those things? And the guy that did is still there?

    Well that makes perfect sense.

  46. anicra says: Jan 6, 2014 2:45 PM

    Noooo they fired Ralphy from a Christmas Story

  47. thelastpieceofcheese says: Jan 6, 2014 2:46 PM

    Now we need Ross to fire himself!

  48. gmsalpha says: Jan 6, 2014 2:58 PM

    Tannehill is a young, average QB who still has potential IMO. But not as long as the O-Line allows him to get sacked 7 times a game. Reminds me of David Carr in Houston. Bound to fail if he can’t stay upright.

    And who’s responsible for choosing the players on the roster?

    Not Mike Sherman.

    And I agree with a previous poster that Jeff Ireland will not get canned. When something sounds too good to be true, it usually is.

  49. csbanter says: Jan 6, 2014 3:09 PM

    Joe Philbin is a chump. Mike Sherman is just taking the fall. Maybe if they didn’t waste millions on Wallace the O would’ve been better.

  50. 69finfan says: Jan 6, 2014 3:12 PM

    Go, Go Mike, right outa here.

    funny how people slammed ireland for asking dez about his mom, then what happened about 2 years later…..dez is in the news for hitting his mom, stories that she is a drug addict, media storm on the cowboys…..i’d say ireland was right to ask those questions, he never questioned his talent, he questioned his negative impact on a team. what is dez considered, a great wr who is a menace, disrespectful and a diva.

  52. finz4eva says: Jan 6, 2014 3:13 PM

    Yeah Ireland aint going nowhere, Ross said hes going to stay on and right this ship.

  53. futilephish says: Jan 6, 2014 3:13 PM

    Maybe the next oc can get tannehill to hit a wide open Wallace on the go route!

  54. mrbigass says: Jan 6, 2014 3:16 PM

    You have to believe that it was Sherman’s influence that got them to draft Tannehill since he coached him at TAMU.

    So is Tannehill now on the block?

  55. scmems07 says: Jan 6, 2014 3:17 PM

    people who slam tannehill cleary just look at stats and do not watch the game, some of the throws he makes are amazing, its hard to throw an accurate deep ball when 3 defenders are in his face. he has worked behind bad o lines both years and has looked very good for a qb with only 19 college starts. he is the future and will be a top qb in this league very soon. he is not limited to gimmick offenses like kap, rg3 and newton.

  56. daddyb1gdrawz says: Jan 6, 2014 3:23 PM

    I am not unhappy with the firing but this is like having a tooth ache and deciding to give pain medication instead of pulling out the tooth. Somebody please tell why this story does not include Ireland as well? How can a GM who has supplied this much lack of talent be shown loyalty? Ireland is blackmailing Ross. Makes no sense.

  57. finz4eva says: Jan 6, 2014 3:24 PM

    Hopefully Sherm takes that crappy WCO with him.

  58. 1rockyracoon says: Jan 6, 2014 3:58 PM

    The players rightfully wanted a new offensive coordinator. Don’t talk about Philbin’s loyalty to his friend Sherman. Sometimes you hire someone to do a job and they aren’t able to do it. You replace them; you don’t resign and have everyone go down in flames. If he refused to replace Sherman then his entire staff would have been fired along with him.

  59. zardozeppelin1963 says: Jan 6, 2014 4:07 PM

    The Dolphins draft class of this year had the fewest snaps of any other team…is that on the coach or the GM? Suggests that they are not on same page? If I was Ross I would fire Ireland and let the GM make the decision on coach(es)…

  60. phinfan says: Jan 6, 2014 4:08 PM

    Well you fired the man calling mediocre plays to mediocre talent. Now fire the man bringing in mediocre talent!!!

  61. thehawg says: Jan 6, 2014 4:08 PM

    Should have promoted Sherman to Gm & fired Jeff Ireland.

  62. ampats says: Jan 6, 2014 4:08 PM

    What an embarrassing way to end the season for the “off season winners”, Choking to the Bills & the Jets and then finishing in third place in the AFCE behind the NY Jets.

  63. jc327 says: Jan 6, 2014 4:10 PM

    Could be the best thing for Philbin and Tannehill. Sherman always came across as a smug, arrogant guy who was reluctant to change his ways and that kind of person probably felt like he was running the show in Miami, being Philbin’s superior for practically his entire career.

  64. mumfio says: Jan 6, 2014 4:11 PM

    scmems07,
    Tannehill is wildly inconsistent. One game he looks like a future great then he plays a team like the Bills or Saints & looks like he should be watching from the bench.

    The sacks aren’t all on the O-line either. I saw many times where Tannehill held the ball way too long & got sacked and of course fumbled.
    He’s better than Henne was, but how much better? I don’t see a future Brees or Brady with Tannehill.

  65. ghost26 says: Jan 6, 2014 4:13 PM

    Getting rid of Sherman is a good start BUT any Dolphin fan with a pulse realizes that Ireland & his scouts don’t know what they hell they’re doing.

    1) When you trade up to the 2nd round to get a running back you don’t draft a RB who is slow & can’t break tackles. See Daniel Thomas.

    2) You get EXTREMELY lucky that Long turns your offer down & opts to go to the Rams BUT then why don’t you trade a 2nd round pick for Branden Albert??? And then you use that 2nd round pick to take Jamar Taylor who had major medical issues??? That makes no sense. To think for a second that Jonathan Martin who was a terrible 2nd round pick the year before was going to be the answer @ LT should be enough to convince ANY owner that you’re an idiot

    3) When your O-line is the weakest unit on the team you don’t trade up to Number 3 overall pick & draft Dion Jordan who just had surgery for a torn labrum. Aside from focusing on the wrong position, Jordan failed to make an impact. If you draft a DE that HIGH he better be situational player behind Olivier & Shelby. How do you possibly pass on both Lane Johnson & DJ Flueker when you FINALLY decided to draft a QB in the first round for the first time since Marino????

    4) Bottom line–As GM your team had 4 straight losing seasons & then the team collapsed against the Bills & the Jets to finish 8-8??? Clearly Jeff Ireland is the Matt Millen of Miami. Enough already.

  66. jc327 says: Jan 6, 2014 4:16 PM

    And I may be the only one but I’m not ready to toss Ireland. He’s by no means perfect but he’s hit some nice homers here and there. And while it’s his job to bring in talent, it’s the coaches job to develop it and that’s been a problem in Miami for quite some time. Just look around at other teams’ rosters…

  67. 305phinphan says: Jan 6, 2014 4:19 PM

    The Dolphins problems can easily be fixed in one offseason if done right. Getting rid of Sherman was the first step in the right direction. The Dolphins still have quite a bit of money to spend in the offseason and after resigning Grimes, and Soliali or Starks they should still have plenty of funds to get Branden Albert who would clean up the left side of the line. After that use the first pick on Taylor Lewan OT from Michigan to bookend the right side. Grab a guard in the second, a bruising RB in the 3rd, and a LB or two in the later rounds and I think they would be just fine.

    The offensive line needs to be the number one priority in free agency and the draft. Can you imagine the numbers Tannehill would put up if he actually had time to sit in the pocket and get past his first read? Lets not forget that this team beat the Patriots, Colts, Bengals, and Chargers. There is talent on this team to make a playoff push but they need better play calling and a line and so far they are heading in the right direction.

  68. ghost26 says: Jan 6, 2014 4:20 PM

    Excuse me–‘….If you draft a DE that HIGH he better be an impact player like Von Miller or Aldon Smith instead of a just a situational player who played behind Olivier Vernon & Derrick Shelby.’

    It’s crazy how Ireland manages to dodge these kinds of bullets.

    I’ll say it once and I’ll say it again: Ireland has naked pictures of Ross.

  71. strongmackn says: Jan 6, 2014 4:23 PM

    ——

    exactly, he plays like a guy with 19 starts in college and minimum experience playing qb at a high level. none of the young qb’s are going to be brees or brady, i compare tannehill closer to big ben, which i’m ok with, he is improving at a very high rate, he clearly has the talent to be a top qb and when your being sacked at a record breaking rate its going to get to your head. he does hold the ball, and he needs to scramble more, but that comes with exprerience. for someone to just say he is not the guy after 2 seasons of really bad o line play, questionable play calling and one season of absolutly no weapons on offense is completly wrong.

    people forget for the first 5 games of the season, remember, when most said they would be lucky to win 1 game, he was in the mvp talk.

  73. FinFan68 says: Jan 6, 2014 4:28 PM

    Potential replacements: chudzinski, Norv, kubiak

    Sherman is a terrible former head coach and even a worse OC.

    So in other words, he’s qualified for the Vikings head coaching job.

    Scmemso,

    I couldn’t agree more. This was his 2nd NFL season!!! Let’s see how he plays with a decent O-line & a decent running game. BTW–People have VERY short memories b/c it’s not like Tannehill was drafted by a good team like the Bengals or the Niners or the Seahawks. Even the Dolphins run defense was a failure this year.

    And if people want to point to the Colts turnaround??? There’s a reason why Andrew Luck was considered the best QB prospect by some NFL scouts since John Elway & was drafted Number One overall. Luck was practically groomed at birth to be a franchise QB & he has the UNIQUE ability to put an entire team on his back. Tannehill was not nearly as developed as Luck (who is???) & everyone knew that when he was drafted. Clearly he needs better protection & better coaching.

    Great news! Now bring in Richie and make him a coach with the job to toughen the O line and perhaps they can learn to block so Thill can see who to throw the ball to without looking at the sky. Bill

    This is a step in the right direction at least, Philbin probably had a tough time telling his mentor that his game plans sucked. They need to bring in an up and coming offensive coordinator and not another former head coach that has been rehashed again and again. The league is changing and they need some new ideas to open up the passing game. It would help if Ireland could get some decent O-lineman in the off season since it looks like we are stuck with him for another year. Tannehill made good progress this year he just has to go work with someone on his deep balls, if he needs to throw a laser on a 20 yard route he is fine but if he has to put touch on a deep ball he struggles.

    One down one to go. Ireland, bye bye.

    Great now go fire Ireland!
    PLEEAASE FIRE IRELAND!!!
    With the salary cap space the Dollphins have this would be a great time to bring in a new GM n see if he could suround Tannehill with better talent. Having the draft class with the least amounts of snaps is completely unacceptable! If Ireland stays the Dolphins will officially be the Lions of the AFC. Soo sad!!!

    Hated the way this team finished. It wasn’t very long ago that this same team beat the colts, steelers, bengals, chargers, patriots and almost beat the panthers. How they lose to the jets, buffalo and tampa is not about the play calling of sherman but more the lack a team (player) leadership.

    A Dolphin player doesn’t want be leader, look want happen to Reggie Bush, Carlos Dansby & Richie Incognito.

    Dion Jordan was recovering from a shoulder surgery the first half of the season. Not an ideal start for a rookie but the dolphins knew this going in. If you remember, Ireland got a great bargain and paid a lower than usual price to move up in the draft. When Dion has breakout second year, please apologize to Ireland all the haters on here.
