As Black Monday approaches, plenty of people are saying plenty of things about potential vacancies. In response to our item from Friday regarding the future of Dolphins G.M. Dennis Hickey, a league source with knowledge of the dynamics in the Miami front office told PFT that Hickey is “definitely out.”
The source also said that director of college scouting Chris Grier will be elevated into the G.M. position.
It’s unclear whether the promotion of Grier would occur quickly or after a formal search process. Because Grier is a minority candidate, he can be elevated into the job without further interviews under the Rooney Rule.
The Friday report was softened a bit by a source who said that discussions will continue over the next few days, and that nothing had been finalized. Still, if the move wasn’t looming, there would be nothing to discuss into early next week. And there would be no urgency to end the discussions within the next few days.
