MIAMI (AP) - Two people familiar with the negotiations say talks between Jim Harbaugh and the Miami Dolphins have broken off, and the team is expected to retain Tony Sparano as coach.
Both people spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the negotiations were to remain confidential.
Harbaugh met Thursday with Dolphins owner Stephen Ross in the San Francisco area, two other people with knowledge of the situation said. After the meeting, Harbaugh was still considering staying at Stanford, one person said.
Harbaugh also met Thursday with the president of the university and the provost. The school made an amended offer to the coach with enhancements from an offer presented in early December.
