Dolphins Coaching Search: Pete Carmichael Will Be Brought In For An Interview

It seems like the Miami Dolphins have focused their search for a new head coach on someone who has experience on the offensive side of the ball. That includes, according to our Phinsider blog, Saints offensive coordinator Pete Carmichael. Carmichael has been approached about a move to the Dolphins before, but never in a head coaching capacity. It will be interesting to see if that new title and the promise of a bigger salary will be enough to convince him to move on to the Dolphins.

The Dolphins are expected to interview Carmichael sometime this week. He and his family are happy in New Orleans, so it may take a good showing from Dolphins owner Stephen Ross and general manager Jeff Ireland to convince him to come to Miami. Or, it may take Ross' deep pockets.

Carmichael has a pretty good history as an offensive coordinator, but it remains to be seen how he will do with an offense that isn't led by Drew Brees. But if the Dolphins are trying to get a young up and coming coach in to fill their head coaching spot, they could do a lot worse.
