    Dolphins' Tannenbaum pushed owner to hire Dan Quinn after 2014 season

    October 11, 2015 9:04 am ET
    Dolphins owner Stephen Ross, who fired head coach Joe Philbin last week after mulling doing so several times in the past, was insistent that Philbin remain in charge this offseason, which precluded making a switch in the winter. Mike Tannenbaum, who was formally brought in as Miami's vice president of football operations right after the conclusion of the 2014 season, had long championed the hiring of Seattle defensive coordinator Dan Quinn, sources said, but any pursuit of him was rendered moot by the owner.
    Ross publically supported Philbin during the season with the Dolphins again sputtering and he was adamant about entering the 2015 season with him still in charge, despite the other changes being made around the organization and despite Tannenbaum's strong support of Quinn. Tannenbaum, who was an agent during his time between NFL stints, had Quinn as a client and obviously had to dissolve that relationship once he went from consulting for Ross to actually formally running his football operation.
    Tannenbaum spent extensive time with Ross during last season, sources said, including going on road trips, and Tannenbaum's high regard for the coach was widely known throughout the league.
    But the Dolphins never once contacted Quinn or made any attempts to hire the man who currently has the Falcons undefeated and one of the most surprising stories of the first quarter of the season. While the Falcons -- who badly wanted Quinn -- were aware of the relationship between Quinn and Tannenbaum, all of their research continued to point to Ross adhering to his edict on retaining Philbin and, while they did have some initial concern about that relationship possibly leading Quinn to Miami, it never manifested.
    “We knew Ross could be loyal to a fault,” said one Falcons source, “and we know how highly Tannenbaum thinks of him. But we were pretty confident he was not going to Miami based on everything we heard, even with that strong connection between agent and coach.”

    Hey, Ross! Please sell the team! This story is out now but keeping Tannehunbaum and allowing him to hire Magini will prove one thing, you are NOT a Miami Dolphins fan! I will burn every Dolphins item I own if Mangini is hired because I refuse to support the Ross owned Miami Jets!

    Oh why couldn't Ross's effort to buy the Jets have been successful? It truly does seem like the Dolphins have curse on them especially when things that seemingly don't affect us turn out to affect us greatly and always it seems in a negative way.

    Is Stephen Ross the new Daniel Snyder? Unfortunately it looks to be the case.

      Remember that Seinfeld episode where George decided to do everything the opposite of what his instincts told him to and it actually worked? Thats what the Dolphins need to start doing because it seems like every decision we make turns out to be wrong, and this has been going on for about 20 years. We get the wrong owner, we draft or sign the wrong QB, we hire the wrong coach and we hire the wrong GM. Enough is enough.

        Would you rather have Wayne the Trashman?
        H Wayne H was the one who led the team to the downfall! The year before Huzienga bought the Fins, we were a playoff team, with Coach Shula, Dan Marino, the Marks Brothers, Webb on the OL, Cox and Offerdahl on defense... The same coach and philosophy for nearly 25 years.
        Wayne brought us Jimma, who brought us Pornstache, and the coaching carousel that brought us to a 1-15 season, with NO talent on the roster, until we finally brought the Great Tuna sideshow into town to drive the nails in the coffin. Ross bought into the team following the 1-15 season, with Parcells and a coaching staff in place. He's made his share of mistakes, but until somebody pays him 1.6 billion dollars for the team, it's his!

          That's funny! Yeah, I love that show and have seen that episode. I've seen all the episodes several times.

          It does seem like what could go wrong will go wrong with this team. Ross CLAIMS that he bought the Dolphins because he is a Dolphins fan. NO true Dolphins fan would ever try to buy another team, especially the Jets, Patriots, Bill or Colts. It's against the rules. IF you are a FAN, you just would rather not own a team then own one of those teams, if you are a fan of the Dolphins. Ross isn't a fan. Also, since Tannenbaum was hired to be the VP in charge of football operations Ross should NOT have any say in the hiring of the coaches or anything else football related. I would have stepped down if I wanted to bring in a better coach and the owner denied me the right to DO MY JOB. Ross obviously isn't in this for the money or he would let the football guys he hired do their jobs to try and help this team win and fill up those empty aqua seats. Instead he is just listening to his New York and Jersey buddies who don't really want to help this team because they are Jets fans. Sell the team, Ross, you are ruining this franchise!

            With all the consulting Ross goes out and gets from former NFL people, one guy he might have wanted to consider was former Dolphins (and Jets) special teams coach, Mike Westhoff. Westhoff was very candid an a recent interview with Joe Rose about Mike Tannenbaum, the GM. He said at first he and Tannenbaum hit it off well together. But when Tannenbaum became a GM, Westhoff said he became a guy that just liked to make the big money splash. Westhoff said the big money splash became so important to Tannenbaum and his ego that it clouded his focus on assembling the rest of the team. Westhoff went on to say that he wasn't afraid to voice his opinion with Tannenbaum and that's why he was forced out in New York. Too bad Ross didn't seek out former Miami people along the way. He could have saved us from Tannenbaum, Jordan Phillips and maybe even Man-Gina.
