When Billick's Ravens lost to the winless Dolphins in 2007, Wayne Huizenga told Ross the following week that his asking price was 40 million more because they won that game. Billick has no chance at the Dolphins job, ever.
Amazingly, Billick met with Ross the following year while doing research for a book he was writing. Before shaking Billick’s hand, Ross told him, “You owe me $40 million!”
The meeting went downhill from there.
Billick, apparently unaware Ross was only half-kidding, used the quote as the title for his book’s first chapter. Billick recently told The Miami Herald he thinks Ross to be “very impressive” based on that 2008 meeting.
Ross, judging the failed strategy, the poor meeting and other data, is said to not share the sentiment. That’s why Billick isn’t getting the Dolphins’ job.
