Dolphins Fire Mike Sherman
Al Messerschmidt/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- After serving as the Miami Dolphins' offensive coordinator the past two seasons, Mike Sherman was fired Monday.
The Dolphins' offense ranked 26th in scoring offense this season en route to an 8-8 record.
"I would like to thank Mike for his contributions to the Miami Dolphins," Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin said in a statement. "Mike has been a mentor to me throughout my coaching career, dating back to 1979. He is a man of great integrity, dedicated to his family, his team, his players and his profession. On behalf of the entire Miami Dolphins organization, I want to wish Mike and his family the very best in the future."
Before becoming the Dolphins' offensive coordinator in 2012, Sherman was the head coach at Texas A&M where he coached current Dolphins second-year quarterback Ryan Tannehill.
Bob McAdoo, the Green Bay Packers quarterbacks coach, is considered the leading candidate to become the Dolphins next offensive coordinator, according to the Miami Herald
