Hooray! The King (Carl story) is dead! (for now)

According to the Associated Press, via the Sun-Sentinel, Carl Peterson has said that he will not be taking any kind of job with the Miami Dolphins.

As I talked about on Monday, there is nothing good that could come from having Peterson involved with this franchise.

Of course, this doesn't rule out the possibility of Peterson's name popping up again later on down the road. raised an interesting point having to do with future majority owner Stephen Ross and his troubles lining up the $500 million that he needs to finalize the transaction. If the sale is ultimately put on hold, which it appears it may be, then Wayne Huizenga will retain control over the franchise, and thus Bill Parcells would be unable to exercise his opt-out clause.

However, once the sale finally does go through, don't be surprised if Ross once again pokes around his old pal Peterson to see if he's interested in a job. I hope Ross will wisen up by then, but you never know.
