Dolphins hiring Mike Tannenbaum as executive V.P. of football operations


After employing ex-Jets G.M. Mike Tannenbaum as a consultant last year, the Dolphins are adding him to an executive’s position in the front office.

The Dolphins will hire Tannenbaum as executive vice president of of football operations, PFT’s Mike Florio reports.

Tannenbaum will start his work in Miami on February 1.

Fox’s Mike Garafolo and Alex Marvez first reported the Dolphins would be hiring Tannenbaum to an executive’s role.

According to Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald, General Manager Dennis Hickey will work under Tannenbaum.

Tannenbaum has long known Dawn Aponte, the Dolphins’ executive vice president of football administration, with both working together in the Jets’ front office. Aponte oversees the Dolphins’ salary cap and handles contracts.

Tannenbaum and Aponte would be the Dolphins’ lone executive vice presidents, according to Miami’s front office organizational chart.

Since being let go by the Jets at the end of the 2012 season, Tannenbaum has worked as an agent for coaches. Seahawks defensive coordinator Dan Quinn is among his clients.
