Anthony "Tony" Sparano III (born October 7, 1961(1961-10-07), in West Haven, Connecticut) is the current head coach for the Miami Dolphins of the National Football League. At age 17, Sparano had an incident which burnt his eyes, which is why he always wears his signature sunglasses even at night. Sparano is the only National Football League head coach to lead a one-win team to the playoffs the following year, which he accomplished in his first season with the Dolphins.

Sparano was a four-year letterman for Division II University of New Haven, starting at center for the New Haven Chargers and graduating in 1986.

Sparano began his coaching career at his alma mater, serving as New Haven's offensive line coach for four seasons before joining the staff at Division I-AA Boston University. After one year as the team's offensive line coach, Sparano served five seasons as the Terriers' offensive coordinator.
