Dan Campbell leaving the Dolphins after being passed over for head coaching gig

The Miami Dolphins have granted former interim head coach Dan Campbell his release, according to NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport. Campbell interviewed for the team’s head coaching job, but the Dolphins instead elected to hire Bears offensive coordinator Adam Gase.

Campbell was Miami’s No. 2 choice following an impressive interview, according to the Miami Herald’s Armando Salguero, but the Dolphins were concerned about handing the team over to a man who had never been more than a tight ends coach.

On Saturday, Dolphins owner Stephen Ross spoke to the media about the Gase hiring and was asked whether Campbell is welcom to remain with the organization.

“I mean, that’s really up to Adam [Gase],” Ross said, via the Dolphins’ website. “I mean, I love Dan Campbell. He’s done a great job. I’d love to see him in the organization but Adam has really the free hand to hire his assistants. And the question is, he’ll probably meet with Dan, and he can tell you that, but I don’t think any conclusion [has been made]. But I think, the way we feel about Dan, as an organization, is fantastic.”

Hardy also caused various problems for the team off the field.

In his interview with KDFW 4, Mincey said that since his locker was right next to Hardy’s, he had an up-close view of this entire circus.

If there’s a tiebreaker between the two schools, it’s Martavis Bryant of the Pittsburgh Steelers, who was a fourth-round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft after three seasons at Clemson. He has provided some highlights of his own, including a ridiculous touchdown that helped the Steelers survive the Wild Card round against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Edelman, 29, last played in Week 10 for the Patriots, catching four passes for 53 yards against the New York Giants before leaving with the foot injury. The Patriots won that game 27-26 to improve to 9-0 on the year, but the team finished 3-4 in the seven games without Edelman including losses in the last two weeks that handed the No. 1 seed in the AFC to the Denver Broncos.
