Owner is displeased with last two weeks
NASHVILLE -- Sunday's blowout loss in Tennessee didn't sit well with Miami Dolphins owner H. Wayne Huizenga.
But after talking with head coach Dave Wannstedt via phone on Monday, Huizenga confirmed that there would be no coaching change during the season.
The day before, Huizenga told the Herald that he wanted to meet with Wannstedt in hopes of improving the skidding team's performance. The Dolphins have dropped three of their last four games after a 4-1 start.
Huizenga, however, also strongly expressed to the paper that Wannstedt's job was not in immediate jeopardy. Asked if he would consider changing coaches in midseason, Huizenga told the Herald: "No, absolutely not. I have no interest in replacing Dave Wannstedt."
Nonetheless, the 31-7 pounding the Dolphins suffered at the hands of the Titans has the owner dissatisfied enough to get involved. Several sources told the Herald that Huizenga was already displeased after the Dolphins' home loss to Indianapolis the week before.
"Needless to say, this is obviously disappointing," Huizenga told the paper about Sunday's loss. "This is not the type of performance we were expecting.
"When I get back on Tuesday, I want to talk to Dave. I don't know what he has planned at this point and I want to hear what he has to say.
"I won't talk about what we're going to do until I talk to him."
