On the same day he parted ways with the Denver Broncos, former defensive coordinator Mike Nolan already is scheduled to interview for the vacancy with the Dolphins, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN and Jason La Canfora of NFL Network.
As a league source said, “My money is on him ending up in Miami.”
The Dolphins fired Paul Pasqualoni last week, after two years of running the defense. He joined the Cowboys for Sunday’s playoff loss to the Vikings after Todd Grantham left to become the defensive coordinator at the University of Georgia.
Since then, the Dolphins have had a hard time filling the job. Al Groh opted to take a job as an assistant coach at
Virginia Georgia Tech, Romeo Crennel picked the Chiefs, and Steelers linebackers coach Keith Butler opted to stay in Pittsburgh.
The reasons for Nolan’s departure from Denver remain unknown.
As another source said of the development, “They finally figured out defense in Denver and he’s one and done.”
