The Miami Dolphins are off to one of their best starts in a decade after beating the Browns, Colts and Falcons. But the biggest winner so far has been general manager Jeff Ireland.
On Monday, The Miami Herald reported the Ireland’s contract was extended by the Dolphins in the offseason. He is under contract through at least the 2014 season.
Ireland has been the Dolphins’ general manager since 2008. After making the the playoffs in his first year with the team, the Dolphins followed that up with four straight losing seasons.
The Dolphins are 41-42, including this season, under Ireland, who drafted quarterback Ryan Tannehill and signed wide receiver Mike Wallace in the offseason.
The Dolphins are 3-0 for the first time since 2002 an tied with the Patriots for first place in the AFC East.
