Stephen Ross has patiently watched the wreckage unfold and is "very frustrated," The Miami Herald reported Wednesday, citing a close associate of the owner.
The source shared that Ross was a volatile rainbow of emotions during Monday night's loss to the New York Jets.
"At times, he was very (ticked) off," the associate told The Herald. "And other times, he laughed it off because he's sitting there with friends and it's embarrassing to watch this when you're there entertaining friends."
The newspaper stated that Ross -- while reportedly consulting with former Browns and Jets coach Eric Mangini -- hasn't pulled the trigger on Sparano because the players have told the owner they still believe in the coach. But eight consecutive losses dating to last season are testing Ross' patience.
