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.]

This tragic incident may be a relief to many fans who have been quietly wishing for an event like this for sometime.

LOL there r a few fans up here in cold snowy CT. Could be a day to throw in a few nips!

Television viewers, who’ve mostly been collateral damage in the contractual crossfire between WSVN-Fox 7 and DirecTV over the past week, caught a break Thursday when WSVN announced it will lift its blackout of DirecTV satellite dishes Sunday night to air an NFL playoff game and American Idol special.

Correction Dolphins kick field goal instead. Ross, Peterson, and Ireland step out of plane with fist pumps with Bowles. Ross announces that Bowles is as the next Dolphin coach.

PHILBIN WILL BE THE NEW HC ......

PIST FUMPS

If we hire Mc Coy, then I believe operation: suck for barkley has officially commenced.

FLIPER,ODIN SLEEPING AFTER POSTING FOR 21 STRIGHT HOUR, AND HIS LIVER HAS ENOUGH ALOCOHOL TO LAST FOR THREE WEEKS.
(BUFFET OF KNOWLEDGE)

Long live fist pumps (Sparano).

The Miami Dolphins have the WORST owner in Pro Sports. How did this happen to us ?

McCoy is back in Denver packing up his s--t while smiling & thinging "I can't believe they bought my Bulls--t!" The new age of below-mediocrity has dawned in Miami. We should rename the Fins to the Generals....as in Washington Generals. I'm old enough to remember the sad disarray of the new startup TB bucs....I'm afaid the next 3+ years in Miami will be similar.

Taking all bets that NYG still expects Cowher to be our new HC.

If only we could be so lucky!

McCoy is another Sparano, but thinner. I didn't find any special in Denver this year. Same with this kind of sect reverend Tebow. They were dismantled by the infamous patriots.
Surely Rubber- Ireland was weaping Badman-Ross' ass in the plane for him to be clean in the press conference announcing hin brand new puppet. This threesome will make an excellent job next year 4-12, but having so fun in Ross' box consuming poppers, and playing with nice toys. Gizz, we're doomed, what an ordeal having this clowns in the front office.

Ross must feel like the most watched Man in Miami. hehe.

Worst Owner um probably not but yes he's not one of the top owners either LOL.

I can give him some credit for trying to do what he can to win, but he's got "HOT CARL" Peterson whipering in his ear and until he learns to drop the "HOT CARL" like it's hot he'll continue to bumble and stumple through decisions.

I will watch American Idol.

marchcool-
That was stated with precision. weaping and Gizz.WOW.
