A day ago, few knew Patriots director of player personnel Nick Caserio was a candidate for the G.M. position in Miami. A day from now, Caserio could be close to getting the job.
Tom Curran of CSN New England reports that Caserio will have a second interview on Saturday, one day after Caserio had a first interview.
Caserio has helped set the table for coach Bill Belichick since Scott Pioli left for Kansas City in 2009. Despite consistently passing on other opportunities to leave, Caserio has decided to throw his three-cornered hat in the ring.
Dolphins assistant G.M. Brian Gaine has received a second interview, and Titans director of player personnel Lake Dawson is expected to get a second interview, too.
As we explained Friday, a source with knowledge of the Dolphins’ search told PFT that the Dolphins likely requested permission to interview Caserio from the outset of the search, and that Caserio politely declined.
If Caserio had shown interest in leaving sooner, the Patriots could have re-hired Pioli. But Pioli accepted a job two days ago as assistant G.M. with the Falcons.
