Parcells Excuses Cameron
As expected, Bill Parcells continued to clean house in the Miami Dolphins franchise by giving coach Cam Cameron his pink slip. During his first and only season with the Dolphins, Cameron compiled a 1-15 record, an accomplishment that no doubt led to Parcells’ quick hook.
Cameron’s firing comes just one day after Parcells hired Jeff Ireland to fill the vacant general manager position, an opening Parcells created as well. Ireland was with his new boss in Dallas and helped build a team that currently has the best record in the NFC; a fact Dolphins fans should be quick to recognize.
There’s been no mention of a possible replacement, but you can almost guarantee Parcells will hire someone who he’s comfortable with. Dolphin fans can weigh in with their selection at Greg Cote’s Miami Herald blog entry.
