Dolphins May Offer Jim Harbaugh as Much as $8 Mill

Dolphins May Offer Jim Harbaugh as Much as $8 Million to Coach, ESPN Says

By Mason Levinson - Jan 6, 2011

The Miami Dolphins are willing to make Jim Harbaugh the highest paid coach in the National Football League with a salary up to $8 million a year, ESPN reported on its website.

Dolphins owner Steve Ross, General Manager Jeff Ireland and former NFL executive Carl Peterson are scheduled to meet with Harbaugh today, a day after the Stanford University coach had a five-hour session with officials of the San Francisco 49ers, ESPN.com said, citing two unidentified sources.

Ross is prepared to offer Harbaugh, 47, an annual salary in the $7 million to $8 million range, ESPN said.

Harbaugh, who led the Cardinal (12-1) to a 40-12 win over Virginia Tech on Jan. 3, is also a candidate to become coach at the University of Michigan, where he played quarterback in the 1980s. Michigan fired Rich Rodriguez yesterday after he posted a 15-22 record in three years.

The Dolphins have yet to fire coach Tony Sparano, who led Miami to its second-straight 7-9 season. In three seasons with the team, Sparano has a 25-23 record.

8 million to a coach who has never been a HC in the NFL and you still technically have a coach under contract? Interesting.

the Fins decided to stay with Sparano after not being able to work out a deal with Harbaugh.

I don't understand why teams do this when they already have a coach in place. If they want to go in a new direction, why not just fire the guy first.

If I was Sparano, I would feel like I just got spit in my face. That has to knock down morale.

Believe me the local papers down here were saying the same thing, that he should just split. The whole team just about bashed him on the radio stations down here, he should just walk away.
