Even after the Miami Dolphins decided to retain head coach Tony Sparano, after openly (and unsuccessfully) seeking Jim Harbaugh as his replacement, the Dolphins coaching situation remains in a state of disarray.
For one, reports have surfaced that some tensions between general manager Jeff Ireland and Sparano, dating back to their time in Dallas, have only recently been quashed--and the finality of this resolution is completely debatable. Then there’s the feeling that the team will soon clean house with respect to assistants, particularly on offense.
Then there’s that vacancy at offensive coordinator left by the departure Dan Henning.
Of course, as far as the Dallas Cowboys are concerned, none of this would matter much, if not for the fact that one names that has been listed among those drawing interest from the Dolphins to fill the offensive coordinator vacancy is John Garrett, Dallas tight ends coach and brother of new Cowboys’ head coach Jason Garrett.
The South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported last Friday that Garrett was one of four potential candidates for the position, according to sources. Other candidates include the Raiders’ Hue Jackson, the Saints’ Pete Carmichael and the Chargers’ Rob Chudzinski.
