Ireland Hired on as New Dolphins General Manager

Ireland

The Dolphins have themselves a new GM, as the team has announced the hiring of Jeff Ireland.  The 37-year-old had spent the last seven seasons in player personnel with the Cowboys, being tight with Bill Parcells.  “Jeff Ireland certainly was an important part of this organization,” said Cowboys coach Wade Phillips. “Miami has done a smart thing by hiring him. And Bill was around him, so he knew what he does.”

Ireland spent the past three years as Cowboys vice president of college and pro scouting.  “I am excited about joining the Dolphins,” Ireland said in a statement. “I know the great tradition of the team, and in my mind they are one of the flagship franchises in the NFL. They have a great owner in Wayne Huizenga, who I know is committed to making the Dolphins into winners once again. I am looking forward to working with him and everyone else in Miami to achieve that goal.”  There are already rumors that Ireland will have a big hand in deciding if Cam Cameron will be kept as the teams head coach following the teams awful 1-15 season.
