Several newspapers are reporting that Bill Parcells has locked Dallas Cowboys assistant coach and offensive lineman coach Tony Sparano as the Dolphins next head coach, effective at the end of the season.
This irritates me. It’s the third person who has left the Cowboys organization for sunny Miami. This bothers me because it’s occurring in the midst of the playoffs, when the Cowboys face the most scrutiny the team has faced since the 1-15 Jimmy Johnson year when pundits wondered if he was the answer.
If there was ever a reason to dislike Parcells, this is it. I understand the NFL is a business and the Cowboys coaches are coveted because of this success. But it does very little for the Cowboys in the playoffs. And while Tony Romo is in Mexico with his bimbo, us fans are sitting here wondering how far this team will go in these playoffs.
However, this is also good news in that Jason Garrett hasn’t committed to the Dolphins, Falcons or Ravens. If there is anyone the Cowboys need to retain, it is Garrett.
