The New Haven Register has the scoop.
New Haven native Tony Sparano has been offered the head coaching position by the Miami Dolphins and will accept it at the conclusion of the Dallas Cowboysâ€™ season, according to a source.
The 46-year-old Sparano, who graduated from Lee High and the University of New Haven, is the assistant head coach for the Cowboys.
A 1982 UNH graduate, Sparano was the head coach of his alma mater from 1994-98, leading the Chargers to the 1997 NCAA Division II national championship game. He was an assistant at UNH from 1984-87 and an assistant at Boston University from 1988-93. BU was 11-0 in 1993. Sparano did not return calls.
A Dolphins spokeman denied the report through the Associated Press.
A Dolphin source denied the report to the Palm Beach Post also. What’s my take-
The job is Sparano’s if he wants it. Miami is just going through the motions in order to fufill the Rooney rule.
