As Senior Bowl practice get rolling, the Dolphins still don’t have a G.M. By the time they play the game this weekend, the Dolphins still likely won’t have a G.M.
And the Dolphins are fine with that. Even if their fans and some members of the Miami media may not be.
Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports that more interviews for new candidates are still coming, and that after the initial wave of interviews ends, the team will select a group of finalists and then select a successor to Jeff Ireland.
The good news for the Dolphins is that oft-times absentee landlord Stephen Ross reportedly is engaged in the process. The bad news is that he’s reportedly out of the country, in the United Kingdom and then on his way to China.
The candidates include Browns assistant G.M. Ray Farmer, Titans V.P. of player personnel Lake Dawson, Dolphins assistant G.M. Brian Gaine, Steelers director of football and business administration Omar Khan, Cardinals V.P. of player personnel Jason Licht, Lions senior personnel executive Brian Xanders, and Buccaneers director of player personnel Brian Hickey.
Other candidates have said “thank you” preceded by “no” to a chance to interview, including Ravens assistant G.M. Eric DeCosta, Seahawks personnel exec Scot McCloughan, and Vikings assistant G.M. George Paton.
