Tony Sparano Speaker Profile
Tony Sparano Biography
Tony Sparano was born October 7, 1961 in West Haven, Connecticut and is the current head coach for the Miami Dolphins of the National Football League. Sparano is the only NFL head coach to lead a one-win team to the playoffs the following year, which he accomplished in his first season with the Dolphins.
Beginning his NFL career in 1999, Sparano was fired in three staffing purges after brief stints with the Cleveland Browns, Washington Redskins and Jacksonville Jaguars. Sparano was hired by new Dallas Cowboys coach Bill Parcells in 2003, rising from tight ends coach to assistant head coach in his five seasons in Dallas. Sparano was the offensive play-caller for Dallas in 2006, but ceded the responsibilities to new offensive coordinator Jason Garrett the following season.
After firing Cam Cameron following a franchise-worst 1-15 season, the Miami Dolphins and new executive vice president of football operations Parcells hired Sparano to a four-year contract on January 16, 2008.
In his first season, Sparano led the Dolphins to an 11-5 record and the AFC East division title, securing the franchise's first playoff berth in eight seasons before losing to the Baltimore Ravens in a wild-card game. The 10-win turnaround tied an NFL record and Sparano finished one vote behind Atlanta Falcons first-year head coach Mike Smith in balloting for the AP Coach of the Year award.
