Despite the proverbial black eye that is the Richie Incognito-Jonathan Martin saga, the Miami Dolphins have pressing issues as the team heads into the offseason with a new GM. With the looming scouting combine, free-agency, and draft, Dennis Hickey will need to act fast to hire an assistant GM of his choice.
Just last week, as reported by Andrew Abramson, of the Palm Beach Post, on the Big O Show on 640 sports, with Orlando Alzugaray, the idea of Dennis Hickey hiring Marc Dominik was floated. In fact, it's been widely reported that Hickey, who has full reign over his roster and scouting department can hire an assitant of his choice. It is highly possible that Hickey has a wink-wink, nod-nod agreement with Marc Dominik, but because a myriad of other issues, he has yet to be hired.
With the partying of ways and murky exit by assitant GM Brian Gaine, the Dolphins have managed to make a common situation look worse. In fact, it was Gaine who pounded the pavement at the scouting combine talking to prospective draft hopefuls, watched practices, and took copious notes. One wonders if Dennis Hickey has a copy of those notes taken of players the Dolphins were looking at and analyzing.no comments
