Well, Sports Illustrated has made it official. Dave Wannstedt is gone.
I’m not surprised. Getting rid of a coach in midseason is pointless in terms of turning a team around, but at this point the Dolphins have no chance of a turnaround, and need to throw a bone to their fans and players. Based on comments in the press from players recently, the team has been melting down and Dave wasn’t doing anything to stop it.
It’s sad that a coach that brought some solid winning seasons to Miami has to go out this way, but that’s pro sports for you…
