Miami Dolphins owner Mike Deegan on his relationship with owner Dan Campbell
The Dolphins owner is not the only one who feels betrayed by the decision to remove him as chairman.
And they’re not alone.
Miamians David Deegan and Michael Deegan say they don’t know who made the decision and they don´t know if Dan Campbell has been fired.
Deegan, the owner of the Miami Dolphins, says he does not know who put the move into motion.
The Dolphins said on Monday they were cutting the board member who made Campbell’s removal and that Campbell would remain on the board.
They also said they were terminating his contract.
It´s been four years since the Dolphins’ most successful season in franchise history and they are still trying to get back to the playoffs.
The team was ranked sixth in the NFL in 2013.
They lost to the Cleveland Browns in the wild-card round and then lost to Buffalo in the AFC title game.
The Dolphins had a record of 5-13 last season.
Campbell is the second person to be ousted as the Dolphins chairman, joining Jim Kelly in 2003.
“I was a very close friend of Dan Campbell.
He was a great friend to me.
I was very disappointed to hear of his departure from the Dolphins,” Deegan told reporters on Monday.
We had a very good relationship.
“We have a good relationship and I will continue to work with him to try to make the Dolphins the best football team in the league. “
A source with knowledge of the matter confirmed the move to ESPN.com. “

This is the third time in six years that the Dolphins have gone to an owners meeting and lost a chairman. “
They (the Dolphins) are in the process of firing Dan Campbell, but that decision is not final,” the source said.

Miami has gone 5-14 since losing to the New England Patriots in the playoffs last season and was eliminated in the first round of the playoffs by the Kansas City Chiefs.
They are 3-9 since.
They lost two members of their coaching staff and one of their general managers to free agency.
Former Dolphins general manager Dennis Hickey, who is now the NFL executive vice president of football operations, was fired by the team in January 2016.
He said he was fired after he failed to convince his team to buy out a player.
