We’re a little late on this one, but heard from enough of you guys that we thought it was worth addressing.
NFL Network’s Mike Lombardi mentioned more than once early in the week that Mike Nolan and much of his staff in Miami wanted to leave the Dolphins to join Jason Garrett in Dallas. The partnership makes some sense on paper, but the report apparently came under wrong pretenses.
Jay Glazer of FOX said on Sid Rosenberg’s show on WQAM that the Cowboys wanted Nolan, but once Tony Sparano stayed Nolan didn’t want to go anywhere. The Dolphins confirmed Nolan is under contract and staying put.
It’s possible both reports are true, and that Nolan simply isn’t able to make a lateral move just because he wants to. Either way, it’s a lot more likely that Nolan’s predecessor in Miami will get the gig.
Cowboys assistant Paul Pasqualoni (the former Dolphins coordinator) may be the leader in the clubhouse for the Cowboys coordinator gig.
