Dolphins onto second round interviews

The Dolphins are making progress in their effort to hire a head coach -- at least they seem closer to getting there.

The club yesterday made the pivot away from some candidates and is "on to the second round" of interviews, I've been told by the club.

I am looking for confirmation this means no new candidates will be added to the current pool although I believe that to be the case. I have been told several candidates have been cut from the process -- one of them being Chicago Bears special teams coach Dave Toub, who was the first candidate to interview for the job.

Toub was told Monday he was no longer being considered for the job. He re-signed with the Bears today.

An NFL source tells me Cincinnati defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer has also been cut from consideration.

So what does this mean?

It means the next Dolphins coach will be selected among the following group: Todd Bowles, Joe Philbin, and Mike McCoy.

Philbin, the Green Bay offensive coordinator, will interview again on Wednesday. McCoy, the Broncos offensive coordinator, will interview again Thursday. I am trying to confirm when Bowles will get his second interview, assuming it is not happening today.

[UPDATE: I should have mentioned this earlier, but Philbin is clearly eager to have the job. There were questions about his emtional state following the drowning death of his 21-year-old son last week. There were questions whether Philbin would be willing to relocate his family. He is willing to relocate his family, a source close to Philbin told me.]

All the interviews will be in New York, where owner Stephen Ross is spending the next couple of days.

HC: Todd Bowles

FRANCHISED: CHAD HENNE

I MAKE IT SIMPLE FOR ALL 8TH GRADERS HERE
IF YOU WERE A SHAKESPAIN ACTOR, WOULD YOU WANT TO BE IN A MOVIE DIRECTED BY THE THREE STOOGES?
(BUFFET OF KNOWLEDGE)

TONY S will get the last laugh!!

He never should of been fired in the first place!!!

I would of went to war with this same staff going into next season with a weak schedule and another draft to build on!

2ND Best post of the night, Aloco is on a roll.

just make the right decision Ross. You have more riding on this decision than anyone else. Make it right!

I'M SO SICK RIGHT NOW!!

Lou -

Maybe they'll re-sign Bowles as Assistant Coach / DC and hire McCoy as the HC. SO that is why Ireland and Bowles will be there this weekend.

Ross could fuuck up a cup of coffee!!

How he was ever aloud to buy this team is a joke!!!

Why couldn't Marino get a group together to buy this team!!

Fuuuuuuuuuuuuck..........

It is a fact, that dusty disappeared.

Ross has people to make his coffee so you are probably correct about that.

if its down to these three i say bowles should be the guy. he showed what he can do with the present talent and personnel. he went 2-1 against all division opponents, and should have been 3-0 if not for a poor second half in N.E. The guy deserves a shot. what has Philbin or McCoy done in HC role

TODD, good post: 7:21 PM

t is a fact, that dusty disappeared.

No great loss.

Ok, I don't post a lot but I have read the column and comments everyday in this website at least for the past 2 years...Now I read people defending Sparano after we all wanted him gone...IMO he deserved to get fired, he didn't know how to adjust to the other teams and he look unprepared and outmatched constantly...And I am pretty sure that if I search posts from the first seven weeks of last season I'll find most of you saying that Nolan Had to go because he was doing a terrible job... Grow up and make up your minds, don't hate the Dolphins at everything they do...

Agree 1000% Todd's Board!!! Unfortunately it's too late for that now

Plain and simple!! When you allow the National Champion Florida Gators come to half time of the Dolphins vs Broncos game when Tebow is there and the Hurricanes play at Sun Life, it tells how bright he is!!!

if dolphins are kicking everyone to the curb,whats ireland still doing here???????????nolan and sparano couldnt trust the rat!!

It's simple in my honest opinion.

Ross is keeping Ireland for one last draft to solidify the O-line. That's it. He's sure Ireland won't find any sleepers and trade away multiple picks for average players.

Once Ross couldn't get Harbaugh(because of Ireland), he secretly went into suck for luck mode.

He kept Ireland! Right off the bat, that's a great move that right there..........if you're trying to lose big time.

Then he resigned SpOrano knowing he'd want to bring in more Cowboy cast offs that weren't worth a shyt. And they weren't. More of the same.

He vetoed Orton and Ok's Moore in the hopes he would do for us what he did for Carolina. It almost worked.

Now he will get the absolutely worst Coaches he can find, so together they can the first pick in next years draft.

Then he'll use his solid O-line and first pick of the 2013 draft to lure in his new General Manager and Head Coach!

What else could Ross do? Parcell's quit on him and he got stuck with a freaking Ball Boy!

Bottom's Up in 2013!!!!

Ha!

Boycott sign in sheet.

The top end of this organization is so short sighted. They made a big deal over the fact they were going to go out and hire a big-name guy, a track record guy. And then, of course, are reduced to what we have now. So they look even more idiotic because they can't follow through on their own promises.

I'm glad Fisher didn't land in Miami. His body of work really speaks to his mediocre record. Philbin might be great, if he had another Aaron Rodgers. I like the Tebow story, but let's be honest about the amount of offensive production under McCoy with Tebow and Orton.

We suck. Might as well Hire Coach Bowles and save some money.

Every year we're first class suckers. DUMP IRELAND NOW.

no one in their right mind wants to come here;only the ones who are desperate. mando has been warning us for 3 years now. he was negative with good reason. ireland rarely comes out of his rabbit hole.

The problem is each year I say I'm going to boycott and never am serious.

They might aswell hold a lottery and pick the next HC from a list of season ticket holders...it just doesn't matter and I just don't care anymore.

I'm a bit bummed Zimmer is apparently out of the running. Thought he was the right choice. Especially after just reading he was too blunt (is that possible?) And that he called Petrino a gutless b@astard. I mean that is frickin awesome! Especially considering that is exactly what he was.

Can we hire Matt Millan? He may even be a step up from Ireland.

MIKE LEACH FOR COACH!!!!

He'll instill some discipline.
If BMarsh doesn't perform, he'll be locked in a broom closet.

MIKE LEACH FOR COACH!!!!

I SEE THE FIELD FOR ADMITENCE FOR GANG OF DEFEAT IS FARCE, LOT OF NAGATRIVITY HERE BYY A :LOT OF BROWN DONKYS, MY DECISIONS WILL BE AS HARD AS MR.ROSS TRYING TO GET COACH.
(BUFFET OF KNOWLEDGE)

Stan Carino,

Thanks.

ArmandoSalguero Todd Bowles will interview with Fins a 2nd time either tomorrow or Friday. He found out today he's also on the Indianapolis Colts radar.

you cant trust your own GM because he is a sniper within. nolan and sparano didnt trust him. even the families didnt speak to eachother.

Is it hard to think when you're down in the dumps! Write, People, write.

He was too blunt!! Fuuck Armando and rest of these so called Journalists who no absolutely nothing about the game or what people are thinking!!

Mike McCoy blew away Dolphins management in his interview and is said to be the top candidate for the position at this time.
Stay tuned.

Armando is being interviewed?

McCoy can def bring that offensive with him from GB

I will never not be a dolphins fan and whoever they bring in I will ultimately support.

At this point Ross should throw in the towel.

I don't care how much of a pompous asss Billick is. I don't care if he did make a blunder headed call and helped us not go winless.

He has to be better than the other guys out there. He can bring Singletary as his DC.

Lets go Old School on their assses!

Beats the hull outta Philbin, McCoy and Zimmer!

Get the pompous asss on the phone, he and Ireland will be like twp peas in a pod!

Why you think he blew them away?

ESPN -- I am the same. I wanted Fisher, then Carmichael and now I am down to McCoy. I will support whomever is selected as the new HC.

it is obvious that Ireland and Ross want a "yes man" as coach. Ross wants to have GM authority and Ireland is his puppet. Together they are going to hire a puppet for head coach. This is why Fisher was not hired. This is getting pathetic!!!

This will never be more than a mediocre chat room because we cannot get an elite journalist to lead it.
We can't get even get a journalist who is being spoken to by the team that he is covering as a full-time profession.

Siderman, I thought McCoy coached in Denver?

Oops, sorry, I meant sPiderman.

Ciderman! LOL!

McCoy ...from GB? WTH is going on.

What a joke Zimmer should get a 2nd look. What about Carmichael yet McCoy gets a 2nd look for what Denver ran 90% of the time with Tebow.
No Winston Moss not even a look please tell me Philbin is bringing Flynn and Finley. It seems to me Ross is trying his best to put the worst out on the field maybe he is trying to move the Dolphins out of Miami to LA he is star struck.

ARMADOS ONLY SOURCE TO DOLPINS RETIRED, WHERE HE STILL GOES THE SUNDAY DINER LIKE HE HAS FOR 8 YEARS(TALOR)

Most of the comments on here come from Mongoloid out of work plumbers....get a job and quit thinking you know football....inbreads!

I AGREE MR.ROSS LOOKING TO PUT A BAD TEAM ON FIELD SO ATENDANCE DROPS BELOW 30 THOUSAND(I THINK ATENDANCE LAST YEAR 35 THOUSAND, HE DO WANT TO BE CLOSERTO B-LIST CELEBRETIES.
(BUFFET OF KNOWLEDGE)

Hey Dickabod I fixed your drip so shut your mouth.

Bro, those celebrities are going to get the hel- out of here if they don't get their promised piece.

Dickabod: only an inbred would not know how to spell it's own kind.

When the attendance gets low enough Ross will threaten to move the team and the state will offer to build him in a new stadium if he stays.
He will then depreciate the stadium and the next $500mil that he and his partners make will be tax free.
Revenue + Depreciation = Bigger profit that full stadium

The team is like the corpse that gets found by a drifter and sodomized.

Pickabod, Pickabod, I know that name....

Dickabod Crane:

I happen to be a native Mongolian and would appreciate it if you would not insult my peeps and compare the geniuses in here to them.

I am also an amateur plumber and specialize in clogging up female plumbing systems. Out.

With Nolan gone I could live with Spags and going 4-3 D. Dump Solai use that money for Flynn and draft a RT for protection. Or a ball hawk safety.

As PSU homer I wouldnt mind trading down and drafting Still and getting an extra second. Odrick, Starks, and Still would kill the middle.

Dont give Odereye any Ideas.

We played some pretty good football the last half of he season.

I'm good with hiring Philbin, retaining Daboll, and hiring a DC who doesn't change things too much.

A right tackle, a veteran safety, an elite tight end...an olb to push Misi.

We could compete despite Ross's failings......

Yeah, but if they build the Stadium, build it very near US1.

Broncos closer to losing Mike McCoy to Miami Dolphins

The D enver P ost(1 hour ago)

Mike McCoy worked closely with Tim Tebow​ this season. (The D enver P ost)There's a strong chance Broncos head coach John Fox will be interviewing for a new offensive coordinator.

The team's current offensive coordinator, Mike McCoy, is heading back to Miami for a second interview Thursday for the Dolphins' head coaching position.

McCoy had first interviewed Monday for the Miami job.

McCoy had never been a head coaching candidate before this offseason, but his prospects surged because of how he helped bring along the unique skill set of quarterback Tim Tebow.

The Broncos won seven of Tebow's first eight starts, a run that led to the AFC West title and a first-round playoff win against Pittsburgh.
-----------------------------------------------

This convinces me Ireland is trying to hammer out a deal to finally land us the long sought after first round quarterback.

When I asked my sources within the Bat-Cave, they informed me that Ireland has offered Elway our 1st and 2nd round picks this year and next for a package deal including Coach McCoy, Tim Tebow and a very promising up and coming ball boy in Dante Horkowitz.

Horkowitz was tutored at Penn State University in the finer arts of Ball Handling. Said an anonymous source: "He looking GOOD!"
