The Miami Dolphins have fired embattled offensive coordinator Mike Sherman today, the team announced.
With coach Joe Philbin making the announcement via a statement, it looks like he's safe to return. There are reports that general manager Jeff Ireland will be back, too.
The Dolphins' offense was inconsistent and failed to protect quarterback Ryan Tannehill.
“I would like to thank Mike for his contributions to the Miami Dolphins," Philbin said in a statement. "Mike has been a mentor to me throughout my coaching career, dating back to 1979. He is a man of great integrity, dedicated to his family, his team, his players and his profession. On behalf of the entire Miami Dolphins organization I want to wish Mike and his family the very best in the future.”
