Assistant GM Gaine leave Dolphins

The SportsXchange

Brian Gaine is out as the Miami Dolphins' assistant general manager after the team announced Wednesday an agreement to a mutual parting.

Gaine came to the Dolphins in 2008 and served as the team's assistant GM in 2013. Reports indicated that he was one of the finalists for the general manager job that went to Dennis Hickey last week.

"I want to thank Brian for his contributions to the Miami Dolphins," Hickey said in a statement. "We both agreed that this decision was in everyone's best interests going forward. This will allow Brian to move forward in his professional pursuits and the Dolphins to move forward with our 2014 plan. I want to wish Brian the very best in the future."

Hickey was hired to replace Jeff Ireland, who left after six years as Dolphins GM following the 2013 season. Hickey was the director of player personnel with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Gaine has been in the NFL for 16 seasons and came to the Miami organization from the Dallas Cowboys in 2007.
