    Dolphins coach Cam Cameron was fired Thursday morning, ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports, continuing the team's shakeup following the hiring of Bill Parcells as head of football operations.

    Cameron's fate was decided a day after the Dolphins hired Jeff Ireland as their new general manager and less than a week after Cameron finished a 1-15 season in his first year as an NFL head coach.

    Parcells' call also means the Dolphins will have their fifth head coach in five seasons in 2008.

    I find it funny that the Dolphins, who just crucified Nick Saban for walking out on their organization, hire a coach and fire him after one season. Sure Cameron will get paid but it doesn't make Huizenga must different than Cameron in my book.

    If you literally had the perfect coach, who made the perfect call every time, and made every perfect management decision, the Dolphins go 4-12 this season. Mere mortals: 0-3 wins.

    When you have five years of recent drafts and none of those players are on your current roster, that's not a very good situation.

    Cameron is probably best suited to be an offensive coordinator but I'm sure he would have made a lot of different decisions if he knew he was only going to be there for one season. He's the first coach in a long time there that actually realized it needed to be blown up.

    Ahhh, but remember that Huizenga stuck up for Satan and showed him no malice for bailing. Explains how they're cut from the same cloth...

    By Steven Wine, AP Sports Writer
    DAVIE, Fla. — Coach Cam Cameron is done with the Miami Dolphins after his only season produced only one win. Cameron was fired Thursday by new Dolphins' boss Bill Parcells, which means the reeling franchise will have its fifth head coach in five seasons in 2008.
    Parcells began work Dec. 27 as executive vice president of football operations and quickly concluded the Dolphins need another fresh start.

    It has been 37 years since the Dolphins fired a coach. But they never finished 1-15 before.

    Re: Cam Cameron fired

    Short list of names;

    Jason Garrett
    Josh McDaniel

    Whoever Miami doesn't get, KC better damn well get them.

    Jeff Jagodzinski is a sleeper for the Miami job. McDaniels won't get a chance for another year or two. He's only 31 and doesn't have enough coaching experience for a head job yet.
     
  8. Coach Jags?
    Damn. That's a lot of respect for the Champs Sports Bowl.

    What kind of experience do you need for a head job again? Damn, I'm in the wrong biz.

    Exaggerate much? The Phins have drafted like shit but there have been productive players taken in the last 5 years. Carey, Brown, Crowder for example. Trading picks for shitty QB's didn't help either.

    He sucked as a head coach at Indiana; I have no idea why the Dolphins thought he'd be better in the same role for them.
