Nolan has always been one of the best DC's in the game, Im sure since we never even looked at him as head coach and promoted an undeserving assistant ahead of him his fate was sealed
when he was turned down for the head coaching job he was never going to hang around
It's a shame when these threads get moved out of the Dolphins forum. Watching Nolan now gives us perspective on where we were and what's changed, what hasn't. He was vilified by a lot of people here. Watching how he does this year might make for some interesting discussion relevant to our new coaching staff and how our personnel performs under the change.
I though he left cause his contract was up and he knew we were getting rid of sporano who he was loyal too for what ever reason.
