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.
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.
