Mike Nolan = Miami HC??

Tony Sparano press conference for Monday canceled Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on October 3, 2011, 9:13 AM EDT

We're not sure this means anything yet, but Dolphins coach Tony Sparano's media availability for Monday has been canceled according to Greg Cote of the Miami Herald.

The moment that Miami went to 0-4 on Sunday, the Dolphins started their bye week and the Sparano hot seat watch went into overdrive.

Owner Stephen Ross is in a tough spot. He's the one that gave Sparano an extension in the offseason. Ross is the one that made a big show of organizational unity and stability after going after Jim Harbaugh.

Just four games later, firing Sparano would be another admission of incompetence by Ross. The only logical in-house replacement is defensive coordinator Mike Nolan, whose disappointing defense has fallen from sixth to 30th in the league.

We'll be tracking this story throughout the day.

Nolan might end up a good coach some day but hes only going to be a temp coach this year if they can Sparano.
Miami is going for the big names.
Report: Tony Sparano safe until Oct. 17


Tony Sparano's job as Miami Dolphins coach is safe -- at least for a couple weeks, according to a published report.

Ross is probably the worst owner right now.

Unless Nolan proves himself, which I don't think happens.
WTF . Id defenitely watch some of dolphins games if this happens just to see what unfolds with Nolan as interim HC.

Dumb move, IMO.
Exactly! But friends in Miami say he is gone...by the time they come off of the bye week, new coach in place. Local sports stations saying Nolan would coach out the rest of the season and be evaluated.
And then Nolan will refuse to draft luck, because of his attitude, will draft somebody else, and throw him under the bus, just before he requests the league to wear a suit on gamedays.
Will he bring the suit back?
suck for luck!
oh god... next thing you know singletary will be the hc of the vikings because he had experience as a hc lol
