DAVIE, Fla., Jan. 3 (UPI) -- Cam Cameron and all but two members of his coaching staff have been fired by the Miami Dolphins four days after the end of a 1-15 season.
Cameron was the Dolphins head coach for one season after five seasons as offensive coordinator of the San Diego Chargers. The Dolphins announced the change Thursday in a two-paragraph announcement on their Web site.
"This is a difficult decision and I want to thank Cam and the rest of his staff for their work this past season," said Dolphins General Manager Jeff Ireland. "By making this decision now, it gives all of the coaches the greatest chance to pursue other opportunities."
Assistant special teams coach Steve Hoffman and linebackers coach George Edwards were retained by the team. The Dolphins' Web site listed 18 men as assistant coaches to Cameron.
Miami was an NFL-worst 1-15 in 2007. The Dolphins were 0-13 before beating the Baltimore Ravens -- who also fired their coach -- and then ending the season with losses to New England and Cincinnati.
