Former Miami Dolphins coach Tony Sparano has died at the age of 56.  His death has yet to impact the Vikings odds of winning Super Bowl 53.  They were listed at 10/1 odds along with the Eagles, second shortest after New England.

Since 2016, Sparano had served as the offensive line coach for the Minnesota Vikings, who confirmed his death.

"Our hearts go out to Jeanette and the entire Sparano family as we all mourn the loss of Tony," Vikings owners Mark and Zygi Wilf said in a statement. "Tony was a passionate and driven individual who cared deeply about his family, and especially enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren. Tony's presence within the Vikings organization will be deeply missed. We are only thinking of Tony's family during this incredibly difficult time. We ask that the entire NFL and Vikings family keep the Sparanos in their thoughts."
