Miami Dolphins Coaching Search: Jeff Fisher Reportedly To Interview For Job

The Miami Dolphins are set to interview former Tennessee Titans head coach Jeff Fisher, reports Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald, for their open head-coaching position. Dolphins secondary coach Todd Bowles took over for Tony Sparano on an interim basis for their final three games, and he finished 2-1. As Salguero notes, Miami must interview at least one head-coaching candidate outside the organization due to the NFL's Rooney Rule, but he believes it ought to hire Fisher rather than simply use him to satisfy the Rooney Rule.

Fisher coached the Tennessee Titans franchise from 1994-2010, compiling a 142-120 (.542) record during that 17-season span. He led the Titans to Super Bowl XXXIV, but they fell, 23-16, to the St. Louis Rams.

In January 2011, The Titans reached a mutual agreement with Fisher to buy out the last year of his contract.

Fisher is also set to interview for the Rams' coaching vacancy, so Miami is not alone in vying for his services.
