Two people familiar with the situation say Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross has been meeting with his top advisers before deciding whether to fire anyone in the wake of the team's late-season collapse.
One of the people said the meetings began Sunday night and will resume Thursday, and a decision could come then. That person said that during the Dolphins' loss Sunday to the New York Jets, Ross became so upset he turned away at one point because he could no longer watch.
Both people spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because discussions regarding a possible organizational shake-up have been private.
Second-year offensive coordinator Mike Sherman is considered the most likely to be fired.
