Former Jets GM Mike Tannenbaum has been hired by the Miami Dolphins as a consultant.
Tannenbaum will consult with the Dolphins on a variety of projects involving innovation, analytics and sports science. He will continue in his role at Priority Sports and Entertainment, Miami said.
“As an organization, we are committed to innovation and technology and we feel the creation of our analytics department and the development of our sports sciences program will help our personnel, coaching staff and players reach their full potential,” Dolphins GM Dennis Hickey said of Tannenbaum and his other recent hires.
Brian Bassett, TheJetsBlog.comIt is no secret that Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross (a New Yorker) looks to the Jets organization as a template based on his frame of reference. While Ross has done a number of things differently, there are plenty of of instances of coaches, players or staff have ties between the Jets and Dolphins going back to the Parcells era in New York.
Tannenbaum might be happy as an agent, but he understands the cap about as well as anyone and it is no surprise to me that he wants to stay relevant for another GM opening in the NFL could he get one.
