hi-res-7611512_crop_northThe Miami Dolphins and general manager Jeff Ireland have mutually agreed to split ties with each other, the team announced today.

Ireland struggled to get things going in his six years as the Dolphins GM. In all of those six years, he made the postseason only once, including five consecutive seasons of missing the playoffs.

"I want to personally thank Jeff for his hard work and dedication in building the team over the past six years," Dolphins owner Stephen Ross said. "After a series of discussions, we both felt that it was in our mutual best interest to part ways. Jeff was a loyal and dedicated member of the Dolphins and we wish him and his family nothing but the best."

Ireland spent more than $200 million in free agency for this with Miami, only for the team to finish with an 8-8 record. However, Miami rebounded and finished pretty strong and after having a huge distraction in the middle of the year with the Richie Incognito/Jonathan Martin bullying scandal.

After dealing with so much drama, it looks like Ireland decided it was best for him to leave just as much as the Dolphins willing to let him go after five consecutive losing seasons.

Miami fired offensive coordinator Mike Sherman earlier in the week.

Joe Philbin's job is believed to be safe as the team's head coach, but Miami isn't done yet this upcoming offseason in making moves and changes to the franchise.
