The Dolphins pulled out all the stops for their interview Tuesday with Jeff Fisher, taking him to and from the facility in a helicopter. Because helicopter rides are cool.
The most notable part of the interview was that former Chiefs football czar “King” Carl Peterson was in the room for the meeting, according to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.
The Dolphins and Peterson previously denied reports that Peterson was taking a Parcells-like role in the organization. But his presence in this meeting, along with his close friendship and business relationship with Dolphins owner Stephen Ross, shows that Peterson is very much a factor inside the Dolphins building.
Jeff Ireland remains the Dolphins general manager, but we’d expect Peterson to be named something in the coming weeks.
Fisher is expected to interview with the Rams this week. That’s assuming the Dolphins don’t compel Fisher to take the Miami job in the meantime.
