DAVIE, Fla. (AP) -Dallas Cowboys executive Jeff Ireland is rejoining Bill Parcells as general manager of the Miami Dolphins.
Parcells hired Ireland on Wednesday to replace Randy Mueller, who was fired Monday after three seasons with Miami.
Parcells, who spent four seasons as Cowboys head coach, joined the Dolphins two weeks ago as executive vice president of football operations.
Still to be decided is the fate of Cam Cameron, whose job is in jeopardy after going 1-15 in his first season as an NFL head coach.
Ireland spent the past three years as the Cowboys' vice president of college and pro scouting, and he helped build the team that won the NFC East this season. Before that, he was an NFL scout for 11 years.
He has been around football since childhood, spending summers as a ball boy during training camp for the Chicago Bears. His grandfather, former Philadelphia Eagles player Jim Parmer, scouted for the Bears.
Ireland's stepfather is E.J. Holub, a former linebacker with the Kansas City Chiefs.
