eave it to the wayward, woebegone Miami Dolphins to mess up their coaching search before it even begins..
During this holiday season, the Dolphins are dreaming of a Jiminy Christmas except they seem to be dreaming about the wrong Jiminy.
Or should I say the wrong Jimmy?
All indications point to the Dolphins and owner Stephen Ross again making a futile run at fellow Michigan man and San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh when, really, they should be targeting Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher. ...
When Fisher took over from Bobby Bowden, he turned a lagging program into one of the most modernized football operations in America. He hired sports psychologists, nutritionists and kinesiologists and implemented the latest GPS tracking technology during training drills to keep track of a player's fatigue level during practice.
"In a four-year term, they (FSU) have put together one of the best prescription models of impact (GPS) data across all sports," sports scientist Gary McCoy told the Sentinel's Brendan Sonnone. "I'll walk into NFL clubs and they'll ask who's doing it better than anybody. I say, 'Florida State University.' "
Are you listening, Stephen Ross?
You better be.
Your franchise is falling further and further into the abyss of irrelevance.
Personally, I think Fisher would be a fool to leave FSU, but the Dolphins would be even bigger fools if they didn't try to convince him to do just that.
