It looks like the Dolphins will have at least one in-house candidate for their defensive coordinator position.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the team plans to interview linebackers coach Anthony Campanile for the job. The Dolphins fired Josh Boyer last week.

Campanile began working for the Dolphins in 2020 and remained on staff after the head coaching change from Brian Flores to Mike McDaniel. He previously coached at Michigan, Boston College, and Rutgers.

The Dolphins have also requested an interview with Seahawks assistant head coach Sean Desai for the opening. The list of candidates will likely grow a bit longer in the coming days.

  1. Enough with hiring coaches without any previous DC experience. The last time the Dolphins hired a DC with prior DC experience was 2011 (Mike Nolan). Since then they have hired position coaches to become DC in Miami. So they come in here learn the ropes, make mistakes and some move on to become good DC elsewhere Lou Anarumo for one. The rest fai go back to being position coaches.

    That’s lunacy. You’d hire a guy who went from being an assistant to a failed DC, before hiring an assistant who hasn’t failed as a DC?

    That Retreaded. See what I did there?

    Anyone Mike McDaniel hires is going to be a lot better than anyone Chris Grier hired so I wouldn’t worry too much about it.

    You can only go up from Josh Boyer.

  3. Either way, we know we’re set on the offensive side of the ball. Too bad TB6 can’t say that about his squad.
