    DAVIE, Fla. -- Unlike his boss, Bill Parcells didn't need to go to Costa Rica. He stayed right at home and decided Cam Cameron had to go, along with just about everyone else on the Miami Dolphins.

    A year ago Thursday, Dolphins owner Wayne Huizenga embarked on a two-week coaching search that took him as far as Central America to interview at least a dozen candidates.

    Now the Dolphins are starting over.

    Cameron was fired Thursday after winning only one game in his first year as an NFL head coach. The move means Miami will have its fifth coach in five seasons.

    heres was some news on their coaching search after cam was fired
    **UPDATE #2**: In Ireland's press conference, he said that a big reason for the firing of Cam Cam was that he and Parcells just didn't know him very well and they would rather have someone who shared their same philosophies. So the rumors about the high interest Parcells has in Tony Sparano and Todd Haley are probably quite accurate. Also, ProFootballTalk is reporting that the Dolphins will be having former Ravens defensive coordinator Rex Ryan in for an interview for the head coaching job. [end update #2]

    **UPDATE**: It's official, as the team has announced the move on their website. New GM Jeff Ireland released the following statement:
    "This is a difficult decision, and I want to thank Cam and the rest of his staff for their work this past season. By making this decision now, it gives all of the coaches the greatest chance to pursue other opportunities."

    Also, the Herald reports that there will be an 11 am press conference with both Bill Parcells and Jeff Ireland. [end update]

    It is being reported that the Dolphins have finally fired Cam Cameron. ESPN's Chris Mortensen first reported it. And since, both the Miami Herald and the Sun-Sentinel have posted their own stories.

    It's also being reported that all but 2 of Cam's coaches have been fired as well. The two that have been retained are assistant special teams coach Steve Hoffman and linebackers coach George Edwards. Why have these two been retained? Probably because both have experience working with Jeff Ireland in Dallas

    and 3 years later, almost to the day...how much has Parcells really improved upon what Cameron(and regimes before him) destroyed?

    going undefeated is a stain this team cannot get away from. it's now become our albatross, our curse. get used to hearing the phrase "...they're a long way away from that undefeated '72 squad..." the next 3-5yrs.

    Maybe so, but the decision to let him go came way before that. Wayne Huizenga must have been talking with Parcells weeks before that happened, and he knew Parcells was going to give Cam the axe as soon as he could pretend to "evaluate" him (which took abouut 1 day).

    likewise in sparanos case. im sure ross made up his mind when we were eliminated 2 weks ago. it took 3 days to officially fire cam , i bet it wont take that long for sparano
