Dolphins Ax OC Sherman 1/6/14
MIAMI - Miami Dolphins offensive coordinator Mike Sherman has been fired, the first change by the team since missing the playoffs because of a late-season collapse.
Sherman's unit ranked 27th this season in the NFL in yards, allowed a franchise-record 58 sacks and scored once in its final 24 possessions.
The Dolphins (8-8) would have made the playoffs if they had won one of their final two games against the Bills and Jets. Instead, they were beaten by a combined score of 39-7.
Other changes in Philbin's staff are possible.
