The Dolphins haven’t even won a playoff game since 2000, a span that goes far beyond the time which Stephen Ross has owned them.
But Ross was confident Sunday, after beating the Patriots to reach a 6-10 record, that success is on the horizon.
“I told the players that I really believe,” Ross said, via Andrew Abramson of the Palm Beach Post. “For those who stay, we’re going to be winning Super Bowls. If you look at our organization today, you see what we’ve done.
“From every aspect except the playing field, we’re probably the first class organization in the National Football League.”
Yeah, about that. The Dolphins haven’t had a winning record since 2008, Ross’s first year with his name on the letterhead. And they’re in the midst of their latest coaching search and reorganization, after hiring college scouting head Chris Grier to serve as their new General Manager under Mike Tannenbaum.
Ross wouldn’t rule out his interim coach either, saying: “I love Dan Campbell. I think he’s great.” He also said he wanted to make a hire “sooner than later,” noting that plenty of teams were looking for coaches.
