MIAMI -- Dan Marino resigned as senior vice president of the Miami Dolphins on Tuesday, only three weeks after accepting a job to return to the team he quarterbacked for 17 seasons.


"I have decided that it would not be in the best interests of either my family or the Dolphins to assume the role as the team's senior vice president of football operations," Marino said in a statement released by the team.


Two days ago, team sources told ESPN's Chris Mortensen that Marino was having second thoughts about his role, which had yet to be defined.




Sources told Mortensen then that Marino discussed his future with Dolphins owner Wayne Huizenga, but it was not an indication that Marino would resign. Huizenga had offered to give Marino some time off after the Super Bowl to think about the change in lifestyle his role will require.


What Marino's role exactly would be -- or whether he indeed would have one -- was expected to be determined in the next week.


Marino denied Mortensen's report before taking the air for CBS' Super Bowl XXXVIII coverage.




Marino was an unexpected hire by the Dolphins after coach Dave Wannstedt was stripped of control over personnel decisions following the regular season. Marino has not held a front-office job before and there had been no indication prior to his selection that he had any interest in the position or had been interviewed by Huizenga and team president Eddie Jones. Huizenga and Jones interviewed seven candidates before hiring Marino.


Marino will report directly to Jones. Rick Spielman, was promoted from vice president to general manager when Marino was hired, and Wannstedt will both report to Marino.


Concern also was raised about Marino's return to the team -- the NFL's most prolific passer played for the Dolphins between 1983 and 1999 -- and his ability to work with Wannstedt. Marino has had a strained relationship with Wannstedt in the past; Marino retired reluctantly in March 2000, two months after Wannstedt was hired as coach.


Marino, who's done NFL studio and analyst work for CBS and HBO, took the Dolphins to the Super Bowl in 1985, where they lost to Joe Montana's San Francisco 49ers. Marino holds league records with 61,361 yards passing and 420 touchdown passes.


The Dolphins went 10-6 to miss the playoffs in consecutive seasons for the first time since 1988-89.

I think this is good for Miami. Id let Rick Spielman run the FO. He's a more experienced guy.
