The Miami Dolphins are courting Stanford coach Jim Harbaugh to become the team's new head coach. It also is well known that they have been in contact with ex-Steelers coach Bill Cowher about the same job.
The problem is, they have a head coach in Tony Sparano, who is 25-19 with a title in the AFC East, one of the toughest divisions in football, in three seasons with the Dolphins.
But apparently Sparano doesn't have the pizazz, the glitz, or the glamor needed to compete for attention in a city where the Miami Heat reside.
It appears that Dolphins owner Stephen Ross is getting a free pass from the media as this goes on.
I wonder if identical behavior by Dan Snyder would be greeted by such deafening silence? Or would he be blasted (and rightfully so) for leaving a coach with a winning record and a division title to his credit twisting in the wind while he held multiple meetings with his potential successor?
