Miami Dolphins hire Tony Sparano as the new head coach Miami Dolphins hired on Wednesday the Dallas Cowboys assistant coach Tony Sparano as their new head coach. According to the latest reports, Sparano's contract with the Dolphins is four-year long and will pay him around $2.5 million per year. The 46-year-old Cowboys assistant head coach was offered the job by the new Miami Dolphins boss Bill Parcells, with whom Tony Sparano worked in the 2003-2006 period.

 Tony Sparano, who also interviewed with the Ravens and the Falcons, will replace the fired head coach Cam Cameron, who spent only one season in Miami and "led" the team to 1-15 record this season, Cameron's first year as NFL head coach. Ironically, this will also be the first year Sparano is a head coach in the league, although widely respected for his offensive astuteness and his demeanor with the players. He became available after the Giants upset Dallas in their Sunday playoff game.
