Miami, FL, United States (NewsBahn) – An 8-8 season and five straight non-winning campaigns has cost Miami Dolphins GM Jeff Ireland his job, the team reported Tuesday.
The Dolphins finished the season with lopsided losses to the Jets and Bills to fall out of the playoff race and put the finishing touches on Ireland’s tenure.
“I’ve spent the last six years with the best organization in football,” Ireland said in a statement. “Steve and I came to an agreement that the best thing moving forward for all parties would be to part ways. I’d like to thank Steve for all his support and kindness. I’ve had the opportunity to work with some of the most amazing people during this time and I’d like to thank them all from the bottom of my heart.”
Offensive coordinator Mike Sherman was let go earlier in the week.
