In the 2011 off season the Dolphins started a full fledge media circus in the process of trying to lure now 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh, now one season removed it would seem that the Dolphins are going for round 2.
While note entirely their fault the Dolphins have been forced to wait for the past week or so for Jeff Fisher to make his decision to coach either the Dolphins or Rams. Despite initial reports from Jay Glazer that it was all but inevitable that Jeff would be the Rams coach it appears for whatever reason (a potential move to LA, preference of organizational structure) Fisher has shifted his preference to Miami.
With that being said nothing is ever simple in Miami and today for a short amount of time the media circus caused from a Dolphins coaching search reappeared.
It is a bit unclear whether a rumour started from a fan or from media however there was a report that ESPN radio announced Fisher was in the midst of signing with Miami and there would be a press conference later in the day to make the announcement.
As time started to tick, the social media world slowly discovered that the rumour was completely false and while many insiders such as Michael Lombardi or SI’s Don Banks report that Fisher still is leaning towards the Dolphins there has been no official word on what Fisher decision will be and there was certainly never a press conference planned.
The power of social media was shown 10 fold this afternoon as the entire dolphins fan base was excited then disappointed and perhaps even more pissed off within hours. Some would argue that while we all love sitting on our computers anxiously waiting for twitter breaking news that twitter is often not the best form for releasing this type of news as this is the second time the dolphins fan base will be left disappointed. While I still believe Fisher will land in Miami it appears there is no avoiding the circus for this Dolphins organization.
After another day of waiting it appears Fisher will hopefully/ finally make up his mind this Friday.
Shefty reported today, Source said Jeff Fisher is making sure he has ideal situation. "This is not about money, not about negotiating. This is about winning."
Dolphins fans and Rams fans are running out of patience, so please for Tim Tebow’s sake please make your decision already.
