Dolphins coaching search reportedly down to just 3
According to Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald, the Dolphins will be interviewing Todd Bowles, Joe Philbin and Mike McCoy for a 2nd interview in New York. He also ruled out the idea of Mike Zimmer as the Dolphins head coach. I think that Bowles probably won't get the job because Ross wants an offensive minded head coach which could bring the list down to just McCoy and Philbin. I wrote an article on why I would like to see Philbin as the head coach because of the success of the Packers Offense and the fact that he could bring in Flynn. McCoy is the Offensive coach of the Broncos and he called the plays for them throughout the year. Give him credit for adapting to Tebow's strength midway though the season and changing the whole system, which showed his ability to coach players up, given his limited time in doing so. He is also very young and still in his 30s which fits the "young Don Shula" which Ross talked about. Also he coached Matt Moore with the Panthers and got him to play good. However he was taught under Dan Henning's system with the Panthers if that means anything.
