MIAMI (AP) - Miami Dolphins offensive coordinator Mike Sherman has been fired, marking the first offseason change for a team that missed the playoffs because of a late-season collapse.

Owner Stephen Ross was expected to demand some sort of shakeup following the team's dismal finish. Sherman joined the Dolphins when Joe Philbin was hired as head coach two years ago.

Philbin announced the move in a statement Monday.

Sherman's unit ranked 27th this season in the NFL in yards, allowed a franchise-record 58 sacks and scored once in its final 24 possessions. The Dolphins (8-8) would have made the playoffs if they had won one of their final two games against the Bills and Jets. Instead, they were beaten by a combined score of 39-7.
