Miami Dolphins Not Hiring Jim Harbaugh, Sticking with Tony Sparano Instead

Joey GrissoContributor IJanuary 7, 2011

In a move which delightfully discredits the last article I wrote, a source apparently close to the team told ESPN's Chris Mortenson that they would retain Tony Sparano as head coach, meaning that Harbaugh is officially out of the picture in South Beach.

Harbaugh has earlier met with Dolphins owner Stephen Ross about the job and was rumored to accept the teams offer of close to $8 million a year, which would have made him among the richest coaches in the league. However, it is not to be as Sparano will be returning for the final year of his contract.
