Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.


  • The Miami Heat got blown out by the Utah Jazz 118-89. [Herald]
  • The Miami Dolphins fired defensive coordinator Paul Pasqualoni. Former University of Virginia coach Al Groh is apparently the hottest name in the mix to replace him. Let's not forget, though, this is the guy who shut out the Hurricanes in their final game in the Orange Bowl. [ESPN]
  • The Hurricanes, meanwhile, have lost a few star recruits, but analysts at Scout.com say the Canes are doing just fine in the overall quality of their recruiting class and there's no need to panic. [ESPN]

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
