Parcells' Step Back

Bill Parcells no longer is the man in charge of the Dolphins' football operation. The team released a statement on Tuesday explaining that GM Jeff Ireland will take over as the person responsible for the final football decisions.

Here is the two-paragraph statement:

"Effective immediately, Jeff Ireland will assume full control over all aspects and decisions in regard to the Miami Dolphins football team and support staff.

"This was the intent of the structure put in place in the past. Bill Parcells will remain with the club on a daily consultant basis."
