The Randy Mueller era in Miami is going to come to an end possibly as early as this week. The Dolphins GM is going to be fired, not much of a surprise in that considering that new VP of Football Operations Bill Parcells wants to bring in his own guy to run the team in 2008. The Florida Sun-Sentinel reported the firing to be on its website on Sunday. The report also says it would be a shock if Cam Cameron would be back for 2008 as well.
Parcells was non-committal Thursday during his first press conference with the Dolphins when asked about both Mueller and Cameron, but it was no secret that Parcells likes his own guys, so firing the two is not a surprise at all. Mueller has been the Fins GM since 2005, but was only in control of personnel decisions this past season. Cameron came from the Chargers in the last offseason, leaving the Chargers as their offensive coordinator and moving to Miami to be the head coach.
Some of the decisions that the pair made this past season even before the season was a bit of a head scratcher, as they traded for aging QB Trent Green, and then when Brady Quinn was on the board with the 9th pick in this last April’s draft, the team went the other way, taking Ohio State wide out Ted Ginn Jr. The fan base in Miami has been growing more and more unhappy with the direction of the team, and there were tons of empty seats in Pro Player Stadium today as the Bengals beat up the Dolphins, sending them to 1-15.
