Report: Dolphins interview Dennis Hickey for G.M.

The Buccaneers and Dolphins are both looking for a general manager right now and the latest reported candidate in Miami comes from the Tampa front office.

Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports that Buccaneers director of player personnel Dennis Hickey interviewed for the general manager position on Friday. While there have been several candidates on the radar of both teams during the search process, there haven’t been any reports that Hickey is in the mix to get a promotion in Tampa.

Hickey has been in the Buccaneers organization for the last 18 years, serving as a college scout and director of college scouting before moving into his new role. As a scout, he had a hand in acquiring some of the players that helped the Buccaneers to the only Super Bowl title in the history of the franchise.

Hickey is the seventh person to interview for the G.M. job in Miami with Lions exec Brian Xanders the most recent addition to the list this week.

    Dolphins only interview GM wannabes.

    Like Yogi said: “Nobody goes there any more. The place is always full”

    I am glad they are interviewing a lot of potential candidates but I feel like the fanbase has to be getting antsy at this point.

    Are people standing in line in Miami taking numbers like at a bakery to see who’s interviewed next?

    Wow. Ross didn’t get that rich being lucky. I don’t understand why he is handling his team like this. Is he impressed with Bucs strong roster?

    Ross is an idiot

    As a Bucs fan, please take this guy.

    The same dude who asked Myron Rolle (during combine interviews) what it feels like to desert his team.

    We’re interviewing a guy named Hickey and we’re not talking to Alonzo Highsmith…???

    First order of business…put a “Hickey” on Tannehill’s wife

    They should hire his cousin, Earl Hickey.

    He’s great at lists.

    Where are all these crappy canidates coming from?!?
    Why aren’t they giving the new GM real GM responsibilities and letting him hire and fire who ever he wants, including head coaches and personnel?!?
    Why are the Dolphins always doing things backwards?

    If it were my billions, I’d open up the purse strings and go after the best person available, even if they are employed by another team. Draft picks and millions for someone like Ozzie Newsome and be done with it.

    I remember last year when the Eagles were interviewing coaching candidates for what seemed like an eternity. They were being mocked by many. But then out of the blue, they hired Kelly. Don’t judge the Phins GM hire until they hire somebody.

    This is good, because the bucs are widely known for their consistently high quality talent evaluations and draft selections…right?

    Well, looks like it’s back to the liquor store for me. Honestly, I hope that they just interviewed him so when they finally hire someone, we’ can all say “well, at least they didn’t hire that fool from Tampa.”

    Did Hickey have anything to do with the selection of Josh Freeman? If he did-enough said!

    The 8-8 Dolphins are contemplating hiring an employee from the 2-14 Bucs? Now that makes “Ross sense”.
