    How did we manage this?

    Dolphins | Capers will not be given defensive coordinator title
    Wed, 12 Jul 2006 18:50:56 -0700
    Barry Jackson, of the Miami Herald, reports the <A href="http://www.kffl.com/team/22/nfl">Miami Dolphins will not give special assistant Dom Capers the title of defensive coordinator, but that essentially is his job with the team. The Dolphins save cash that way, causing the Houston Texans to pay Capers $2 million in 2006 and the Dolphins only $300,000.

    How did we get an ex-headcoach and one of the brightest defensive minds in all the land for just $300,000. Sucks for the texans, we literally "stole" from them.

    The source is KFFL.

    Damn smart business on Phins part. And don't think for a minute that the Texans wouldn't have done it the same way if the shoe were on the other foot.

    We have all the answers on FinHeaven, I just don't have a clue what the question is.

    Wherever Parcells has gone, I've followed and cheered that team, now he came to my beloved Dolphins. I must be in FinHEAVEN!


    Thanks and Kudos to Crunchtime for the cool sig banners.

    Capers won't be here long, thats part of the reason he was willing to do it.

    It has to do with language in his Texan's contract. If he were hired and given the "DC" title, the Fins would have to pay his entire salary. He is actually being paid by the Texans ($2.3 m). To get him, we paid the $300K per his Texan contract, and the Texans are responsible for the remaining. It's a shrewd move, as much by Mr. H as by Saban...when the Texan's contract expires, (I'm not sure if it is 2007 or 2008) we will have to negotiate a contract to keep him. I am not sure of the exact language, but that is basically how it works...The Texans had to "buy out" his contract and the language in it also states how and who is responsible for his salary once they terminated his services there.

    Agreed. Dom may only be in S Fla a year. My prognostication for the next 'phins DC - Jeff Fisher.
