Report: Sparano safe despite latest collapse
The Miami Dolphins spent Sunday afternoon added to the legend of Tim Tebow, falling 18-15 in overtime and coughing up a 15-0 fourth-quarter lead in the process.
However, that doesn't mean that Dolphins coach Tony Sparano is on his way out the door just yet, despite Miami falling to 0-6.
According to the Miami Herald, Sparano's job remains safe for now. According to Armando Salguero, Dolphins owner Stephen Ross is most likely to stay the course and then make a play for one of the big-name coaches currently on the outside looking in - Bill Cowher, Jeff Fisher or Jon Gruden.
If the Dolphins continue to struggle and somehow luck into Andrew Luck with the first pick, the job could become very attractive very quickly.
Meanwhile, Sparano continues to scratch and claw, as a camera from CBS Channel 4 in Miami picked up on the Dolphins coach asking officials to review Denver's first TD, saying ,“ If I don’t call timeout we’re all (explicit). Now I’m getting fired,” according to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.
