« McCoy believes himself the leading candidate | Main | Joe Philbin to coach the Dolphins »

Dolphins owner on the move back to South Florida

Stephen Ross is done working in New York for the week. His job as a Big Apple real estate mogul is done. His job as the Dolphins owner who has spent the past four days interviewing potential head coach candidates is also mostly done.

Time to come home.

Time to name a coach.

Ross will board his private jet at around 8 a.m. this morning and head to South Florida, where he'll arrive around 11 a.m. He is expected to have with him a decision or near-decision on Miami's next coach when he returns. It's unclear if the new Dolphins' coach will be riding with him from New York, where the interviews were conducted.

Denver offensive coordinator Mike McCoy is considered the leading candidate -- at least that's what he considered himself, as I reported two days ago. Unconfirmed reports, based on dubious tweets from CBS 4 in Denver and the assistant director of communications for the Mountain West Conference, say it's McCoy. I'm trying to confirm through, you know, legitimate means.

Green Bay offensive coordinator Joe Philbin and Miami interim coach Todd Bowles are also candidates.

[UPDATE: NFL Insider Danny More said on the Armando and Perk radio show this morning that Philbin has been eliminated as a candidate. He also reported McCoy returned to Denver following his interview with the Dolphins. That would suggest McCoy won't be on the plane with Ross when he lands.]

[UPDATE 2: A source close to Philbin tells me the Green Bay offensive coordinator has not been told one way or another what his status with the Dolphins is. Sheesh!]

[UPDATE 3: The Mountain West communications director says he has no inside information on McCoy.]

[UPDATE 4: The Dolphins contingent landed in Fort. Lauderdale. McCoy indeed was not on the plane as More said. Neither were any of the other two coaching candidates. GM Jeff Ireland and senior vice president for football operations Dawn Aponte got off the plane and returned to the team's facility. Aponte's role on the trip would obviously be one of budget and contract negotiation.]

[UPDATE 5: A Bowles family source tells me the interim coach has not been told one way or another what his status with the Dolphins is at this time.]

Breaking news !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mystery coach on the plane with Ross. Sources say it is not Bowles, Philbin, or McCoy. Will keep you posted on who this mystery coach may be.

DID THE PIZZA MAN'S SON

(( ROSS ON THE MOVE ))......

Breaking news!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It is rumored that Carl Peterson will announce this mystery coach at 12:00 PM as the next coach of Dolphins. Not sure why Peterson will make the announcement inteard of Jeff.

All comes down to NOT firing Ireland to get Fisher. All the other dominos fall (sideways) because of THAT decision.

Posted by: FLH | January 20, 2012 at 09:07 AM

I hate to keep heaping shyt onto the dung pile, but a truer statement couldn't have been made.

As sad as it is to say, I wanted Fisher BAD!

Here's the sad part, not because I think he's all that as far as coaches go. I simply wanted him because I wanted Ireland put back into his proper job title and resposibilty, which is a SCOUT-PERIOD!

C'Mon MAN! How are you going to let a Glorified Ball Boy run your Billion Dollar enterprise?

On a serious note: I suspect the early stages of Alheizers and senility is putting the double whammy on Ross. Sorry, that's just the way I feel. If you have any better explanation, I'm ALL EARS!

Miami is FKCED with either Bowles or McCoy!

Philbin was Miami's best chance to finally land a potential star QB in Matt Flynn. Philbin would of brought the West Coast offense which would have been a breath of fresh air in Miami to this horrible decade of offensive-offense in Miami. Bush and Marshall, Miami's 2 best players are tailor made for the West Coast offense.

Bowles - McCoy I can deal with it only because his name is not Todd Bowles. Nothing at all against Bowles but he is a continuation of the misery brought on by Bill Parcells and Sparano. There will be no new wrinkles or innovation. Their motto is and always has been our guys are bigger, stronger and use better technique to win games and matchups. They want you to play their game of lineup and the toughest guy physically and mentally will win. That hasn't worked since 1990 when Parcells Giants beat Buffalo in the Super Bowl!

McCoy - he is winner by default. I have no idea what he does offensively because Denver's previous offense was Josh McDaniels, pass, pass, pass team and then he switched to Tebow dive, Tebow left, Tebow scramble to a WR is wide open and Tebow fake dive handoff to Willis McGahee. But McCoy is going to want his guy at QB but Miami can't draft that guy because they pick 8 or 9. So he gets a developmental guy like Henne 2.0 in Foles or Weeden who will be 46 next season and as a rookie neither will unseat the veteran competition brought in such as guys he worked with recently in Brady Quinn and Kyle Orton. So whatever developmental rookie that is taken will be so buried on the depth chart he won't ever see the field or show promise. Miami is screwed!

PEOPLE WHO HAVE JOBS;;;

THE UNEMPLOYED ............ ALL THE REST .............INCLUDING OSCAR THE RETIRED MAIL MAN .......

ALoco,

Why so worried about everyone else having jobs?

I mean you're starting to sound like you want to give somebody a "JOB".

Not that there's anything wrong with that...........

Woah ALoco,

What about me? Lol.

BOYCOTT THE FINS UNTIL IRELAND IS FIRED! HELP MAKE A CHANGE!

Beaking News!!!!!!!!!!!!

We have uncovered who the mystery coach is. It is BOZO the clown. Ross plans are to have a circus performance at halftime of every Dolphin home game.

Update 2:

Is actually good news! Armando use credible sources only. Don't use the emails from Cholly "Bag O Donuts" Gambini anymore.

Well I think philbin would be the hungriest he just lost a son and that must be pretty bad but I think he would coach hard and be great in honor of his son and dedicate it to him!! I think he is the hungriest guy in the search but maybe I'm wrong and it could work the opposite but I don't think so Whoever it is I'm not excited about it at all. These two guys are really the blind leading the blind. Let's hope they get it right. Frankly I'm tired of being so excited before the season and then getting let down so badly. It's been going on for years. Even the old dolphin players think this organization has dropped in status and that's bad!!!!!!!!

ODIN,


I THING YOU CAN TIE BEING NOT HAVING A JOB AND REPEAT A 1000 TIME WHAT YOU ALREADY SAID ABOUT A NEW HC ,LIKE YG/DB .OR MARK OR IRELANDSUCKS ..........IT'S ALL RELEATED TO NOT HAVING A JOB .....


(( ROSS ON THE MOVE ))


PS.......THERE'S A STRONG FEELING THAT PHILBIN WILL BE THE NEW HC /.......

Llyod and Haryy have brainstormed and hired McCoy!!!! Bod news right? Well dont be disappointed tickets will be 75% off next season! Unfortunately the staduim will still be empty! Sorry fans

SORRY ANDY, I DON'T SEE YOU MUCH HERE.... I DECLARE YOU DO HAVE A JOB ........

Thanks Armando!

Is the guy doing his best to keep us informed or what?

We make jokes and we occasionally cut on Mando, but just think what you'd be doing without him right now!

Mando! Mando! Mando! Mando!

Breaking News, Mike McCoy named Dolphins head coach!!!!! Get your tickets while you can at 75%
off......... Nice hire guys, now that took an effort...

Odin, I did that post all for you bud. Glad you appreciated it.

ALoco, you should ask Mr. Ross and Jeff Ireland if they have jobs. If so, ask them to list what their responsibilities are (breaking a professional franchise doesn't seem like it's that impressive).

ODIN ,

IS CROWDER A TALK SHOW HOST NOW ?

Lloyd Christmas and Harry have hired their man McCoy is it! i am prediticting a 5-11 season

brad, Lloyd and Harry. PERFECT!!!

I'm surprised some of the genius's here weren't interviewed for the job. After all you call Ross dumb and you must be so smart! So clearly a Mando minion would be a great selection. The day after a game you all know what the fish could have done differently to win the game.

ODIN,

ALoco, try running that through the translator and re-submitting it.

Thanks in ADVANCE!

DC,


VERY CREATIVE POST @ 9;31 AM............. YOU WRITE GOOD NEW POSTS B/C YOU DO HAVE A JOB..IF YOU DON'T YOU WOULD BE REPEATING THE WHOLE CRAP ABOUT NEW HC LIKE YG/DB ........

N510SR is on it's way to south FL. I hope it brings good news that Philbin is our next couch.

ODIN,

DUE TO YOUR LACK OF EDUCATION ,YOU DIDN'T GET MY POST @ 9;27AM.................

WHAT I MEAN IS.... NOT HAVING A JOB MAKE YOUR BRAIN EMPTY OF ANY NEW IDEAS TO WRITE ABOUT AND REPEAT THE HELL OUT OF YOUR OLD IDEAS.....

(( BUFFET OF KNOWLEDGE )).....

I HAVE THE FEELING THAT PHILBIN IS OUR NEW COACH.......

PHILBIN FROM GB HAD ALMOST 16-0 EASON LAST YEAR......

HOW COULD YOU PASS ON HIM AND PICK A DENVER GUY ?

Let's face it. The writing is on the wall. Mike McCoy will be named the next coach of the Dolphins. I personally prefer Philbin because of the west coast offense knowledge. No one knows what McCoy will be able to do so we should give him a chance. Looks like Bowles will stay as DC.

JOBLESSNESS IS RAMPANT IN COUNTRY DO TO OBAMA LUXERY WELFARE WAYS,WHY ELSE WOULD DB,ODIN,CUBEN AND KRIS NOT GET A JOB?, CAUSE THEY GET TONS OF MONEY AND GOVERMENT CHEESE EVRY MONTH, THEY ALSO GET OLD FEMA TRAILERS TO LIVE IN.

I'm confident the Dolphins will screw this up. Oh no, let's not pick the OC from a Super Bowel team, let's not pick the OC who worked with the top QB for years, let's not pick the OC that worked with the scrub that came in and threw for six touch downs and over 500 hundred yards, let's not pick a winner. Let's pick a loser OC who worked with a running QB, who had a freak year. Let's pick a loser OC because Ireland isn't going to draft or even bring in any QB'S, he's going to run the Parcells blue print and run the ball with a caretaker QB.

No, dolphin in GA, we know what McCoy can do, look at his performance the last 3 years...failures. Notice the only teams to see him as a HC are the Fins and the Raiders...not good company to be in.

ODIN,REPEATING YOURSELF 1THOUSAND TIMES OVER AND OVER IS A SIGN THAT YOU MIGHT HAVE OLDTIMERS DIESIES.AND WHY YOU BEEN POSTING SINCE 4 PM YESTERDAY?, YOU LOOKING TO BREAK DB/FB/YG/LOL POSTING MARK OF 18 STRIGHT HOUR OF POSTING?

ALoco, due to your lack of education, you didn't get my post.

I understood your post just fine. I just take exception with people that make fun of others when their down on their luck.

Do you know how many people are out of work that want to work? Do you know how many people have hungry children because of the past 15 years of Politicians stealing from and running our Country in the ground?

I just don't find it humorous in any way, shape or form.

BTW, I just got awarded a year long contract with the County for upkeep and maitenance on all the parks and rest stops in the county.

This is good news! I use to close up my shop every winter and draw unemployment until spring. Not anymore. My shop will be for maitenance on my trucks, snow plows, mowers, etc, etc.

Anyways, I just don't find it humorous to make fun of people when their struggling. I've been there, I know what it's like. It's not funny.

PS: Lets not fight on this glorious day!

Wow, you're going to add hippocrit to your illustrious list of short comings as well?

You started up with the attacks by calling others stupid and unemployed?

You're one sick little simpleton. I through with this shyt! I can get Dolphin info elsewhere.

Just for the record ALoco: They say you are what you eat. That explains you being a Dik!

Now put on your knee pads and have some lunch!

I'm OUT!

Wow, Is it true Odins been posting since 4 pm yesterday? I gotta check it out.

Aloco is wrong, Odin started posting at 12:57, I believe that makes it 21 stright hours of posting., Way to go Odin.

Why is this blog always about odinseye and Aloco?

NO!

Don't even try to talk me out of it, I'm pissed.

I was in a good mood(nervous about the hiring), but a good mood, joking and anticipating news.

ALoco started it! It's HIS fault.

ALoco, like you always tell everyone else(A thousand times over-LEAK THUH UNEEDUKATED)say your sorry and apologize.

OR ELSE!

Odin, You just broke Dying breeds/Yest.Gone record for stright posting, What are you going to do Now?

HE GOING TO DISNEYLAND.

It's about Our Miami Dolphins in depth.
Odinseye and Aloco are this blogs Mr.Ross and Jeff Ireland.
The ??? is who's who?

No SHYT!

SERIOUSLY, not today Smalls. Please!

These people are trying to follow the hiring, why make them read all your trolling routines?

C'mon MAN! I was talking FOOTBALL and joking around with everyone. I've even posted a couple of articles from other writers about the Coaching search.

Now please, lets not make everybody have to wade through all the bullshyt.
And don't even try blaming the crap routine on me. Aloco started it way back calling people dumb and unemployed.

Not Today, PLEASE!

This will never be more than a mediocre chat room because it is not led by an elite journalist.

i heard zimmer was too blunt in his interviews with ross/ireland. the regime doesnt want to be exposed by a guy who tells the truth. they need more of a 3rd tier coach who will be more of a puppet.

Posted by: greg z, | January 20, 2012 at 06:35 AM

I heard the same thing & you are 1 million % accurate. This is not about finding a quality head coach to take control & do things his way.

This is about finiding someobody Ireland can step all over & throw under a bus as soon as things start to fall apart.

This franchise is soooooo lost & I am really starting to think it's not coming back.

Aloco,
Mando has a full time job.
His full time job is reporting on the Dolphins.
However no one on the Dolphins tells him anything so he is checking with journalists in Denver and Green Bay to find out what is happening on the team in the town he lives in.
Mando is not an elite journalist.
Since mando will never be an elite journalist this blog will remain mediocre at best.

Whats the story on Wsvn(Miami) Are they gonna allow Direct TV to broadcast NYG/San Fran Game?

This franchise is more concerned with protecting an unqualified GM than it is about winning.

When did Jeff Ireland become an Untouchable?

I understand that McCoy spent time in Carolina...did he have any exposure to Moore when there?

If so, then it makes sense to hire McCoy to help with Moore's continued growth as a QB.

In other words, it's Bowles.

He did work with Moore, and from what I recollect Moore did not win a game. If McCoy is back in Denver he is not the new coach. Bowles could be it...

a franchise crumbling faster than a jenga tower.....

NHFINSFAN,

Moore played in Carolina the year after McCoy left to Denver.

NH, if Miami wants Mccoy so he can continue Matt Moore's development....this team is a basement dweller for another 5 years.

Moore got McCoy fired in Carolina.
Moore is going to get traded probably to the Jets to back up.
CHAD HENNE WILL BE FRANCHISED

i stand corrected...
