MIAMI, FL -- Dallas Cowboys assistant head coach Tony Sparano
may soon change teams.

The Associated Press reports Sparano has been considered a
front-runner for the Miami Dolphins head coaching job.

The Cowboys lost their playoff game to the New York Giants.

fourth candidate to interview with Miami.

Sparano, who worked with new Dolphins boss Bill Parcells and new general manager Jeff Ireland when they were in Dallas, interviewed January 5th.

The Dolphins also interviewed Minnesota defensive coordinator
Leslie Frazier and former Baltimore defensive coordinator Rex Ryan.

an NFL head coach.
