Dan Marino resigned as senior vice president of the Miami Dolphins yesterday, only three weeks after accepting a job to return to the team he quarterbacked for 17 seasons. "I have decided that it would not be in the best interests of either my family or the Dolphins to assume the role as the team's senior vice president of football operations," Marino said in a statement released by the team. Marino played for the Dolphins from 1983 to 1999 and took them to the 1985 Super Bowl, in which they lost to San Francisco.

Minnesota Vikings president Roger Headrick has matched author Tom Clancy's bid to buy the team, hoping to satisfy what he claims is a show-me-the-money attitude of the current ownership. Headrick, one of the Vikings' 10 current owners, said last night that he upped the offer he made this week by about $20 million, equaling Clancy's NFL-record bid of slightly more than $200 million. That offer was accepted Tuesday. Headrick said he has a legal right, under the bylaws under which the current ownership group operates, to match any offer from an outside bidder.

Dan Marino returned to the Miami Dolphins as senior vice president of football operations yesterday, a surprising move that gives the team a popular if inexperienced boss. Marino was a record-setting quarterback and the last to lead the Dolphins to a Super Bowl. But there had been no indication of his interest in the job while owner Wayne Huizenga and team president Eddie Jones interviewed seven candidates in 10 days. One of those candidates, Rick Spielman, was promoted from vice president to general manager yesterday.

HANLEY RAMIREZ said he will accept a position switch to third base so Miami Marlins newcomer Jose Reyes can play shortstop. When Reyes signed a $106 million, 6-year deal with Miami last month, there was speculation Ramirez was unhappy about being supplanted at short. But new manager Ozzie Guillen sold Ramirez on the idea. "I have spoken with Guillen," Ramirez said. "What we want is to win with the Marlins. We will see what's going to happen with the position switch and everything else.
