Now he’s back where he’s comfortable, evaluating college talent and engineering the team’s offseason strategy. Both Spielman and Ireland’s had power struggles in Miami that damaged their working relationships. But they’ve clearly grown from those battles considering their second acts serve as proof there’s light at the end of the tunnel if you’re remain patient and stay true to who you are, and what you believe. It doesn’t change what happen with the Dolphins. Neither needed to be in Miami a second longer than they were. But seeing them thrive somewhere else should provide us with an important lesson. The educational component can’t be overlooked in any of these management positions, whether you’re a general manager like Chris Grier, or a head coach like Adam Gase.
