Regarded as the frontrunner to succeed Jeff Ireland as the General Manager of the Dolphins, Ray Farmer officially has completed his interview.

The team has announced that Farmer’s interview has been completed.

Farmer, 39, serves as the assistant General Manager of the Browns.  He was hired from the Chiefs last year, and he was a fourth-round pick of the Eagles in 1996.

He’s the fourth candidate whose interview has been announced by the Dolphins.  On Friday, Miami announced that Dolphins assistant G.M. Brian Gaine, Steelers director of football and business administration Omar Khan, and Cardinals V.P. of player personnel Jason Licht had been interviewed.

The Dolphins have committed to transparency when it comes to identifying the candidate for the job.

  1. How exactly are the Fins committed to transparency when they have disclosed everybody that has interviewed, thus being a candidate for the job?

  2. I’ve heard nothing but great things about this guy. So much so that I wish the Browns would give him the GM position instead of this hiding Lombardi guy. Not even sure he is our GM I haven’t seen him at all.

    Anyways I can’t really trace any personnel moves back to him so it’s hard to truly say how good he is but I’ve heard nothing but great things.

  3. I called this earlier that he would be the front runner, before he was even interviewed, Carl Peterson is now the consultant to Ross and Farmer was his protege at KC, how hard was this to figure out?

  4. I remember him on KC’s Hardknocks. He was straight to the point with players that were cut and 100% honest. I think players respect that.

    Dude, do yourself a favor and look up the word transparency.

  6. Sorry but I do not expect a football team to be transparent. How can you be transparent when you are competing against 29 other franchises? Ross is going overboard to show the public that Ireland was the person that wanted to leave everybody in the dark. The reason Miami has had a bad perception around the league is because they publicly lost out on some big name coaches and players. Why add to that by letting everybody know your business? Just be aggressive and hire the best available. If you do a good job everything else will take care of itself.

  7. At least this time they fired the GM and OC first. I wonder what the deal will be with the DC, perhaps other then Joe everyone needs to keep there suitcase close by. Bill

  8. Dolphins announce that any announcements made before official announcements can happen that all previous announcements up until that time must be disreguarded announcements as those announcements do not qualify as an official announcement. Any announcement going forward should be considered a possible announcement but until an official announcement is made those announcements could potentially be false announcements and those announcements must be looked upon as such. For any and all other anouncements please be advised that those announcements must be announced in an official announcement capacity.
