Todd Haley won't be the only coach fired today.

The Miami Dolphins fired coach Tony Sparano on Monday, a source confirmed to ESPN senior NFL analyst Chris Mortensen.

Dolphins owner Stephen Ross plans to hire Carl Peterson, former president of the Kansas City Chiefs, to fill the role of executive vice president of football operations once held by Bill Parcells, the source said.

Also, Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland will stay on board in some capacity.

Assistant head coach/secondary Todd Bowles will take over the team on an interim basis, a source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

The firing comes at an interesting time. Sparano somehow survived an 0-7 start to the season, but is being let go after winning four of the last five games.

Sparano took the Dolphins to the playoffs in his first year in 2008, but hasn't finished with a .500 record since. Overall, he's 29-31.
