Source: Parcells unhappy with QB Henne's development

Things suddenly look a tad tumultuous for a Miami Dolphins team once believed to be in position for a run at the AFC East title.

The latest downer to come out of Miami is that Bill Parcells, who ceded full control of the team to general manager Jeff Ireland this week, is "disappointed" with quarterback Chad Henne, a source close to Parcells told's Vic Carucci.

Specifically, Parcells isn't happy with Henne's development. The quarterback is entering his third NFL season, and he passed for 2,878 yards and 12 touchdowns with 14 interceptions in 2009, his first year as Miami's starter.

Parcells' feelings on the quarterback matter don't have anything to do with him resigning his position as football czar, according to Carucci.

This is the latest in a recent string of unsettling news for the Dolphins.

In addition to Parcells' reduced role as a consultant, linebacker Koa Misi lost his starting job. In a surprising outcome, second-year cornerback Sean Smith was beat out by Jason Allen. And center Jake Grove had his contract terminated only one year into a multiyear deal that included $14 million guaranteed, leaving Joe Berger to start the season opener.
