Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross has had a change of heart regarding his succession plan for the NFL franchise. The 82-year-old has notified the league of his intentions to change his successor of the Dolphins to his daughter, Jennifer Ross, according to the Sports Business Journal. The process has not yet been completed, but Ross has reportedly made it clear to NFL executives of his desire to pass the team on to his children. Before this development, Dolphins vice chairman Bruce Beal would have had the opportunity to ascend to be the club’s owner.

Roger Goodell says the evidence is clear that the Dolphins didn’t tank in 2019. The evidence is equally clear that owner Stephen Ross wanted the team to tank — and that it would have if coach Brian Flores hadn’t refused to go along with the plan. https://t.co/ECSfQnqGDR
