MMQB's Albert Breer believes Jim Caldwell will have a role on Brian Flores' staff in Miami.

Caldwell has been linked with the Dolphins as their offensive coordinator, but Breer believes Miami could put him in an "associate head coach-type role" while bringing in a younger coordinator. Considering Flores' relative lack of experience, having a veteran like Caldwell on staff makes a lot of sense.

ESPN's Mike Reiss considers Jim Caldwell a candidate for the Dolphins' offensive coordinator job.

Caldwell was tied to Brian Flores when Flores interviewed with the Cardinals last offseason. He looks to be the favorite for playcalling duties in Miami — an important hire given the Dolphins offensive struggles under Adam Gase. Ex-Arkansas coach Bret Bielema has been linked to Miami's defensive coordinator job.

The Miami Herald reports ex-Arkansas coach Bret Bielema could serve as presumptive Dolphins coach Brian Flores' defensive coordinator.

This one comes out of left field. Bielema is most famous for his power-rushing attacks, but he served on the defensive side of the ball before becoming a head coach. The 49-year-old (on Sunday) has never coached at the NFL level.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Patriots DC Brian Flores has emerged as the favorite for the Dolphins' head-coaching job.

Obviously the Dolphins can't hire Flores until the Patriots wrap up their season, but it looks like he's in line to replace Adam Gase as Miami's next coach. Saints DC Dennis Allen, Chiefs OC Eric Bieniemy, Dolphins OC Dowell Loggains, Cowboys DBs coach/pass-game coordinator Kris Richard and Dolphins special teams coordinator Darren Rizzi also interviewed for the team's head-coaching vacancy. A former linebacker at Boston College, Flores has worked for the Patriots in some capacity since 2004. He only has one year of coordinating experience on his resume, though the 37-year-old is thought of as an up-and-comer and should help to shore up what was one of the league's worst defenses in 2018.

Jets hired Adam Gase as head coach.

Gase won out over Mike McCarthy and Todd Monken, who were also finalists for New York's head job. The Jets also had discussions with Baylor coach Matt Rhule, though according to reports, they weren't willing to let him hire his own staff. Gase's Miami tenure came to an abrupt end last week following another losing season in 2018, though it's arguable the Dolphins overachieved, winning seven games despite a bare-bones roster and injuries to key players like Ryan Tannehill and Xavien Howard. Once thought of as an up-and-comer in the coaching ranks, Gase's reputation took a hit during an often-frustrating stay in Miami, though he was always a good bet to land on his feet. The 40-year-old will be tasked with developing franchise quarterback Sam Darnold, who showed flashes but struggled with consistency throughout his rookie year. He succeeds Todd Bowles, who was let go after four seasons at the helm in East Rutherford.

Saints assistant/TEs coach Dan Campbell will not interview for the Dolphins' head coaching job.

Miami brass is heading to New Orleans to speak with DC Dennis Allen about their head coach vacancy, but they have no plans to interview Campbell, who apparently isn't interested in a Dolphins reunion. Campbell served as the Dolphins' interim head coach after Joe Philbin's firing in 2015, but defected to New Orleans after Adam Gase was hired during the offseason. Campbell already has interviews on the books with Arizona, Cleveland and Green Bay.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Dolphins requested to interview Saints DC Dennis Allen for their head-coaching vacancy.

A defensive assistant in New Orleans from 2006-2010, Allen became the Broncos' DC in 2011 and parlayed that into the Raiders' head-coaching job in 2012, lasting 36 games on the job and compiling an 8-28 record before getting fired after an 0-4 start in 2014. Allen was dealt Terrelle Pryor and Matt McGloin as his quarterbacks in Oakland, an obvious recipe for failure. He's since turned around a Saints defense that was the worst in history just a couple years ago under Steve Spagnuolo. Allen is only 46 years old and has steadily been rising the ranks again.

Bears DC Vic Fangio will interview for the Broncos and Dolphins head coaching jobs on Monday.

Fangio isn't available to interview this week as the Bears have a playoff game to get ready for. The Bears retained Fangio this offseason despite bringing in a new head coach (Matt Nagy) and that decision paid off handsomely as Chicago allowed a league-low 283 points in 2018. Despite over 30 years of NFL coaching experience, Fangio has yet to be hired as a head coach. Along with pursuing Fangio, the Dolphins are also targeting Chiefs OC Eric Bieniemy, Patriots DC Brian Flores, Steelers OL coach Mike Munchak and Cowboys DBs coach/passing-game coordinator Kris Richard. Meanwhile the Broncos have been linked to Flores, Munchak, Chuck Pagano and Rams QBs coach Zac Taylor.
Jan 1 - 9:34 AM

The Dolphins requested permission to interview Cowboys DBs coach Kris Richard for their head-coaching vacancy.

Richard has also spent time on USC and the Seahawks' coaching staffs. He is credited with helping Byron Jones, Chidobe Awuzie, and Jeff Heath to take their games to the next level in Dallas. Richard is also drawing interest from the Jets.

Yahoo's Terez A. Paylor reports the Bucs, Dolphins and Jets have all requested head-coaching interviews with Chiefs OC Eric Bieniemy

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports the Cardinals have also requested an interview. The Jets' interest was previously reported by Ian Rapoport. Teams interviewing Bieniemy will be looking to cash in on the Andy Reid coaching tree that has become even more of a goldmine in recent years.
Mon, Dec 31, 2018 02:41:00 PM

CBS' Jason La Canfora reports the Dolphins will interview Steelers OL coach Mike Munchak for their head-coaching vacancy.

They join the Packers and Broncos. Munchak is the sort of coach teams love to talk to in January but rarely hire. Munchak had an unmemorable three-year stint with the Titans earlier this decade.
Mon, Dec 31, 2018 02:38:00 PM

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports the Broncos and Dolphins have sought permission to interview Bears DC Vic Fangio for their head-coaching vacancies.

60-year-old Fangio is no stranger to head-coaching interviews, but he has never held the top job at any level. It is unclear how open he would be to leaving Chicago. It is usually safe to assume anyone would bolt for the "right opportunity." Neither the Denver nor Miami job is overly appealing this cycle.
Mon, Dec 31, 2018 01:27:00 PM

Dolphins fired coach Adam Gase.

It is not a surprising move as Gase was thought to be on the hot seat following another losing season, but his fate did not seem decided before the Dolphins were humiliated 42-17 by the Bills in the season finale. Gase's case is an interesting one because Miami has arguably overachieved during his time there, making the playoffs in 2016 and winning more games than most expected this year, but he also made some puzzling personnel decisions and chased off several talented skill position players. In a weak coaching class, it would not be surprising if Gase immediately lands another head coaching job. At worst, he will likely be coordinating an offense in 2019.

The Boston Globe's Jim McBride reports the Packers have requested an interview with Patriots de facto DC Brian Flores.

The Browns, Dolphins, and Broncos also want to speak with Flores. In his first season calling the plays, the Patriots' defense finished 21st in total defense but seventh in points allowed.

Anthony Miller (shoulder) is active for Week 6 against the Dolphins.

Miller only missed one game with his dislocated shoulder. CB Prince Amukamara (hamstring) is also good to go. FB Michael Burton, CB Marcus Cooper, OT Rashaad Coward, OLB Kylie Fitts, DT Nick Williams, WR Javon Wims and OT Bryan Witzmann round out the Bears' inactives for Week 6.

Bills claimed DT Jordan Phillips off waivers from the Dolphins.

To clear a roster spot for him, the Bills released DT Robert Thomas. Phillips was let go by Miami earlier this week after getting into it with coaches on the sideline Sunday at New England. The former second-round pick has been a disaster this year, earning PFF's No. 94 defensive tackle grade out of 98 qualifiers.

Dolphins waived DT Jordan Phillips.

Losing play time this season, the 2015 second-rounder threw a "sideline tantrum" in Sunday's loss to the Patriots. That was apparently the final straw for the Dolphins, who used to make a habit of talking Phillips up. Instead, he fails to play out his rookie contract. Phillips has never been an effective NFL player.

Dolphins waived QB Bryce Petty from the injured reserved.

Nothing to really see here. Petty signed a guaranteed contract this offseason and was never a lock to be active on the roster. Brock Osweiler and David Fales are Ryan Tannehill's backups in Miami.
Tue, Sep 25, 2018 06:30:00 PM

Dolphins waived WR Tanner McEvoy.

With DeVante Parker (finger) finally healthy, the Dolphins need McEvoy's roster spot for another position.
Tue, Sep 25, 2018 05:32:00 PM

Free agent DE Kony Ealy worked out for the Dolphins on Tuesday.

The Dolphins need defensive line depth in the worst way after losing William Hayes and Andre Branch to injury. Ealy is still only 26 years old.
