The Fish Tank: Miami Dolphins Tales From The Deep

Jeff Darlington: I Like People Who Like Me

August 20, 2019

Jeff Darlington is an Emmy-nominated national television reporter with ESPN, best known for his work on NFL Countdown and SportsCenter. Prior to joining the World Wide Leader, Darlington worked with NFL Network and but he cut his teeth in the National Football League as a beat writer for The Miami Herald covering the Miami Dolphins. In The Tank, Darlington shares why he loved covering Nick Saban in Miami, gives a behind-the-scenes look at how he broke stories involving Manny Wright’s departure from the Dolphins and Stephen Ross’ purchase of the team, tries to make sense out of his obsession with Dolphins quarterbacks, and fondly recalls his legendary “Bangy Dangy” house party promoted by none other than Joe Rose.
