However, all the blame certainly does not fall on Dominik, who did acquire a decent amount of talent in Tampa Bay throughout his term as the team's general manager.
Dominik's right-hand man, Dennis Hickey, who was the Buccaneers' director of pro personnel, recently accepted the job as the new general manager of the Miami Dolphins. One of Hickey's first moves was ousting Dolphins' assistant GM Brian Gaine.
Now, Dominik is looking for work, and according to sources, he's contemplating whether or not to take a position in the Dolphins' front office, which would allow him to again work alongside Hickey. In Tampa, Hickey and Dominik had a very close relationship and the two communicated often, particularly on practically all personnel decisions.
Currently, Dominik has not decided to join Hickey's staff, but Hickey has basically told Dominik that he's welcome to join him in Miami, a source said.
"He's got options, right, so we'll see," the source also added.
