The Dolphins are interviewing a pair of defensive coordinator candidates on Wednesday and they’re expected to add another name to that list in the coming days.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Dolphins have requested an interview with Saints co-defensive coordinator/defensive backs coach Kris Richard. Richard is expected to take that interview.

Richard joined the Saints as their defensive backs coach in 2021 and joined Ryan Nielsen as co-defensive coordinators after Dennis Allen became the head coach in New Orleans. He also spent three seasons as the Seahawks’ defensive coordinator from 2017 to 2019.

Seahawks associate head coach Sean Desai and former Broncos head coach Vic Fangio are the two coaches interviewing with the team on Wednesday. They’ve also interviewed their linebackers coach Anthony Campanile.

  1. Wasn’t too long ago that Richard was a HC candidate. He’d be a good hire for them as DC.

  2. Saints have lost enough needed and key players through terrible trades along with franchise qb and premier head coach. Despite that, their defense has remained elite throughout most of the season for several years. Losing Richard and Neilson will probably bring that to an end as well. Total implosion with crippling cap and lost draft picks.
