Default Tomlin to the dolphins

from profootballtalk.com
Word on the NFL street is that Vikings defensive coordinator Mike Tomlin had a "great interview" with the Dolphins this week, and the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports that he will receive a second look. The interview is scheduled for Monday. (And, by the way, Wayne's plane hasn't left South Florida since Wednesday night.)

There also are reports that the Fins will narrow their list of 12 candidates to five, and conduct a second round of interviews.

Earlier on Friday, we posted some disparaging remarks from a league insider regarding the decision of the Cardinals to conduct a second wave of sit-downs with some of the candidates for their vacancy. (As one league insider later quipped, "Maybe they're going to interview Denny Green next.") So we suppose we can't defend the Dolphins by saying "they've got twelve candidates to consider" or "the first sessions were interviews but information-gathering sessions" (although we have heard that).

It's good that they're being thorough, but it's not like they're trying to determine whether the dude is spongeworthy. Meet 'em, do your homework, and make a decision.

I think Tomlin would have been a great head coach here. I dont necessarily think hiring in house is the right thing to do.

Interesting post - thanks. Unfortunately, it doesn't make the picture any clearer as to who the Steelers are going to hire. What may be even worse is that the Rooneys' 1st choice may turn them down due to already accepting someone else's (probably far more lucrative) offer.

Good point - I missed that on the first read. NFL version of the National Enquirer if there ever was one.

I'm still hoping Tomlin gets the gig here.
