• Dolphins interviewing Nick Caserio today

    Summary of 24 articles · Updated Jan 26, 2014
    And that something could result in Caserio taking over the Dolphins. After Patriots director of player personnel Nick Caserio declined an offer to become the Dolphins G.M. As one league source with knowledge of the Miami search process explains it to PFT, the Dolphins likely requested permission to interview Caserio from the outset of the search. And Caserio like several others politely declined. We won’t try to identify all of the various potential reasons for multiple reports that the Dolphins were proceeding to round two on Thursday, when it was surely known that Caserio was coming to town for a sit down. Caserio, Titans’ vice president of football operations Lake Dawson, and Buccaneers director of player personnel Dennis Hickey met with team owner Stephen Ross Saturday, while the team’s current assistant GM, Brian Gaine, had his second interview Friday night. So if that's the case, why even interview? A few thoughts along those lines: It gives him a chance to develop a connection with Dolphins owner Stephen Ross, similar to what Josh McDaniels just went through by interviewing with Browns owner Jimmy Haslam for Cleveland's head coaching job. I don’t see how either of these two would want to take the Dolphins job, especially when it is clear they are the backup choices.
