(Newser) – The Miami Dolphins have fired coach Cam Cameron after less than a year, the Miami Herald reports. Most of his coaching staff is gone, too, after a 1-15 season that also cost the general manager his job. "We needed someone in place who shared the same philosophical compatibilities we shared," said new GM Jeff Ireland. "We weren't completely sold that he did.''

The decision follows meetings Tuesday and today between Cameron and Bill Parcells, the successful former coach recently enlisted to run football operations. The team may now be considering Cowboys assistant head coach Tony Sparano and Arizona running backs coach Maurice Carthon. "We'll have a broad range of candidates. We'll look into every possibility," said Ireland, who was hired yesterday.
