Jeff Fisher recently gave the Dolphins and their fans the proverbial finger. Nick Saban once gave the Dolphins and their fans the proverbial finger. Now, the two men could be engaging in a tug of war for the coach who recently was let go by a man who in 2010 actually gave Dolphins fans the finger.
Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Fisher is interested in hiring former Jets offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer. On Friday, Schottenheimer interviewed with Saban for the offensive coordinator position in Alabama.
Fisher’s contract still hasn’t been finalized. With an agreement in principle already in place, Fisher has received authorization to begin putting together his staff.
In St. Louis, Schottenheimer would be responsible for getting quarterback Sam Bradford to play more like he did as a rookie under Pat Shurmur than Bradford played in his second season, under Josh McDaniels.
