MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Former Miami Dolphins head coach Tony Sparano didn’t have to wait long to find a new job and it’s one where he can stick it to his former team at least twice a year.

Sparano was officially named the New York Jets’ offensive coordinator Wednesday.

It will be Sparano’s first stint as an offensive coordinator, though he was a play-caller in Dallas for a season.

Sparano was last seen being unceremoniously fired with three games to go in the season by Dolphins owner Stephen Ross. Sparano was expected to be fired at the end of the season.

Sparano compiled a 29-32 record as the head coach of the Dolphins.

Sparano has also been a tight ends coach, offensive line coach, and running game coordinator during his NFL career, which started in 1999.

    Of course, he didn’t have to wait very long.

    …and just like all the other quality people the ‘Daufins let go, he ends-up in the AFC East division and handing Miami their butts over the next couple of years

    Remember Wes Welker; the list goes on?!

      I couldn’t agree with you more if I tried he deserves the best job he could get and I feel sorry for Dolphins because they will get their come upins and it isn’t going to be pretty.

    I was so happy to hear he got a job because he is really a nice fellow and he deserves to get a good job right away no doubt in my mind.
