The first shoe has dropped in the Miami Dolphin off-season. Offensive coordinator, Mike Sherman, has "been relieved of his duties" by head coach Joe Philbin. In an email from the team, "Head Coach Joe Philbin has announced that offensive coordinator Mike Sherman has been relieved of his duties. Sherman served as Miami’s offensive coordinator for the past two seasons.

“I would like to thank Mike for his contributions to the Miami Dolphins,” Philbin said. “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.”

How many shoes does Philbin and more importantly team owner Jefferey Ross have in their closet to "donate to Goodwill?" It seems that the general manager, Jeff Ireland, is on the outside of the perverbial shoe box with his less than stellar job the past few seasons. The lack of team chemistry, the line debacle and not drafting a first round caliber lineman may have sealed his fate with Ross. But in bringing in a new GM would that GM want to bring in a new coach and start his own tenure nice and clean?

There are sure to be more changes in administration and on the field for the Fins. Stay tuned!
