“I want to thank Dennis for his work over the last two years. We talked about a number of different possibilities, but at the end we reached this agreement,” Executive Vice President of Football Operations Mike Tannenbaum said in a team statement. “I have a great deal of respect for what he accomplished here and wish Dennis and his family well.”

“Over the past week, I have had a number of conversations with the Dolphins organization about my role in the team,” Hickey said. “Ultimately the Dolphins and I agreed that it would be best peyton manning pro bowl jersey if we parted ways.”


NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reports that director of college scouting Chris Grier will be among those considered for the opening.

Hickey was hired by owner Stephen Ross in 2014. However, the Dolphins took in Tannenbaum during the 2014 season as a consultant before promoting him to oversee football macro-operations above Hickey in 2015. Tannenbaum’s role gradually increased over the tumultuous season which saw coach Joe Philbin and offensive coordinator Bill Lazor fired. Hickey’s role, on the other hand , was reduced essentially to that of a scouting director. NFL Media’s Jeff Darlington reports that Tannenbaum and Hickey weren’t talking much and didn’t even sit together during games.

This move, heading into the final weekend of the season, signifies a total sea change in the Dolphins organization from the top down. With Tannenbaum leading an extreme makeover, there’s no doubt we’ll see more moving and shaking in Miami in the coming days.
