  • Coaches Linked To Miami

    Coaches like Sean Payton, Chuck Pagano and Mike McCoy -- currently still employed by NFL teams -- could wind up as enticing options if they become available.


    Alphabetical Order -




    Adam Gase, offensive coordinator, Chicago Bears

    Age: 37
    NFL head-coaching record: n/a
    Possible fits: Cleveland Browns, Miami Dolphins, Detroit Lions
    The buzz around Gase: Will be at the top of a number of lists because of his ability to work with quarterbacks, but just as important might be his ability to manage different personalities. The last two signal callers he has coached (Peyton Manning, Jay Cutler) are strong-willed in different ways, and this Nick Saban protégé found a way to get the most out of both of them while building strong relationships with each. Gase was pursued by Cleveland two years ago, and if Manning were to be hired in a front-office capacity (as some have speculated) by Browns owner Jimmy Haslam (who liked Gase quite a bit), he'd be a natural there. He's from the Detroit area, and a team -- like the Lions (or Dolphins) -- that needs to get more out of a high-priced quarterback should be intrigued.
    Hue Jackson, offensive coordinator, Cincinnati Bengals

    Age: 50
    NFL head-coaching record: 8-8 (Oakland Raiders, 2011)
    Possible fits: San Francisco 49ers, Miami Dolphins, Tennessee Titans
    The buzz around Jackson: Jackson has waited his turn for a second shot after acquitting himself pretty darn well in his one-year head-coaching debut in Oakland. The job he's done with Andy Dalton and AJ McCarron is the shiny object for all to fixate on, but the ex-Raider head man also spent time coaching on the defensive side during this four-year stint as a Bengal assistant. His ties to the Bay Area would make him a natural in San Francisco, and Dolphins executive vice president Mike Tannenbaum actually served as Jackson's agent before being brought on full-time in Miami. The Titans merit mention, as well, because of their young quarterback and Jackson's experience developing guys at that position.

    Chip Kelly, unemployed

    Age: 52
    NFL head-coaching record: 26-21 (Philadelphia Eagles, 2013-15)
    Possible fits: Tennessee Titans, Miami Dolphins, San Francisco 49ers
    The buzz around Kelly: So ... This is a new one. Per sources, Kelly intimated to people on Tuesday night, after his firing in Philly, a desire to stay in the NFL. And there's reason to think he can succeed there. The bottom line, as those in the Eagles' building see it: The deconstruction of his running game over the last three years led to his demise. Having a quarterback who runs isn't required for Kelly's scheme, but it helps. And while you don't need superstar guards, having competent players at those spots would've helped, too, as would have better planning at tailback. (If Frank Gore signs, DeMarco Murray never lands there, and the dynamic is different.) The truth is, Kelly needs a run game like most teams need a quarterback. When that failed him in Philly, the rest of the operation suffered badly. So the idea that pairing him with the right personnel man who can help him build the team his way could work isn't crazy. And Tennessee is the obvious place for him to do it.

    Jim Mora, head coach, UCLA

    Age: 54
    NFL head-coaching record: 31-33 (Atlanta Falcons, 2004-06; Seattle Seahawks, 2009)
    Possible fits: San Diego Chargers, San Francisco 49ers, Miami Dolphins
    The buzz around Mora: There are two sides to this. On one hand, there have been rumblings that Mora would like to get back into the NFL. On the other, he has an incredibly promising true freshman quarterback (Josh Rosen) to build around in Westwood. Mora's run in Atlanta did include an appearance in the NFC title game, and he was only fired after he made eyes at his alma mater, Washington, late in the 2006 season. And it's hard to kill him for what happened with the Seahawks: He got one season with a roster in complete disrepair that Pete Carroll and John Schneider gutted the following year. The Charger job is one the rumor mill has connected him to, which makes sense geographically (if the team goes to L.A., L.A. already knows Mora), and also because GM Tom Telesco has ties to Mora's dad.
    Kyle Shanahan, offensive coordinator, Atlanta Falcons

    Age: 36
    NFL head-coaching record: n/a
    Possible fits: Indianapolis Colts, Tennessee Titans, Miami Dolphins
    The buzz around Shanahan: Atlanta's late-season swoon isn't going to help Shanahan, but his work with the running game and setting up Julio Jones for a career year certainly will. Shanahan's work with a host of different types of quarterbacks, along with his adaptability (see: 2012 Redskins), make him very much a candidate for today's NFL. It'd be interesting to see Shanahan paired with Andrew Luck. But he might be more attractive to teams like the Titans and Dolphins, who have quarterbacks with unconventional backgrounds.
    Mike Shula, offensive coordinator, Carolina Panthers

    Age: 50
    NFL head-coaching record: n/a
    Possible fits: Tennessee Titans, Miami Dolphins, Philadelphia Eagles
    The buzz around Shula: This wouldn't be Shula's first shot as a head coach: He preceded Saban at his alma mater, took the Alabama job under very adverse circumstances and helped set the stage for the success to come. He was fired from that job, so a deeper look into what went wrong in Tuscaloosa would be merited. But in the time since, he's clearly distinguished himself with his work first as Cam Newton's position coach (2011-12) and then as his coordinator (2013-present), and he has 24 seasons as an NFL assistant on his résumé. Teams that have passers who came into the league a little raw (Marcus Mariota, Ryan Tannehill) have taken notice.

              I guess I don't pay too close attention to some things about the NFL because I didn't even know he interviewed the first time. AHA


              Former Denver Broncos and Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan is scheduled to meet with the Miami Dolphins for a second time, league sources tell ESPN's Adam Schefter.

              The interview will come Tuesday, Fox Sports was first to report.

              He also met with the team on Tuesday, Dec. 22, in New York, where the second meeting will also take place.


              The 63-year-old Shanahan's last NFL coaching job was with the Redskins, where he led the team from 2010-13, going 24-40 and making the playoffs once. His greatest success came with the Broncos, where he won two Super Bowls in a tenure that lasted from 1995 to 2008.

              In addition to the Dolphins, Shanahan is likely to have some interest in theSan Francisco 49ers' open head-coaching job, Schefter reports.Shanahaninterviewed with the team last year.

              Among the other candidates the Dolphins appear to have interest in areChicago Bears offensive coordinator Adam Gase and Detroit Lions defensive coordinator Teryl Austin.

              The Dolphins fired Joe Philbin earlier this season, and interim coach Dan Campbell won five games in seven starts as the team finished 6-10.

                yeah, i hadn't heard he had previously interviewed either...Still not sure how i feel about the elder Shanahan (I hated him in Denver though there's no denying his success there) I just kind of wish we could find the next great up & coming coach rather than an old retread who's on the wrong side of 60...

                    December 22nd fell on a Tuesday in 2015 so they are referring to a couple weeks ago.

                  The first interview with Shanahan took place on December 22, 2015 so Ross actually learned something from his first mistake with Harbaugh.

                    The Miami Herald's Adam Beasley wrote on Sunday that the team has interviews set for this week, meeting with Gase, as well as former Buffalo Bills head coach Doug Marrone and former Denver Broncos and Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan. He also writes that Detroit Lions defensive coordinator Teryl Austin, Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter, and former Atlanta Falcons head coach Mike Smith are "on Miami's radar."

                      Gase, Ausitn & Koetter: Never been head coach, why is he better option than Campbell. The Bears are nothing to brag about.
                      ​Shanahan: Only won with Elway. Failed everywhere else.
                      Chip Kelly: Failed
                      Hue Jackson: Failed
                      Jim Mora Jr: Possible. He has some success
                      Shula: Same as first three but the story is a good one with the legacy.

                      Sorry guys no one on these lists is making me feel like they are going to turn the world around. I say keep Danimal another year and see what shakes out.

                        my thoughts are if miami can't get shula or cowher ,I agree with finatic just keep DC and see how it shakes out.
                        I know everyone wants a big splash or a big change in miami but if the perfect fit can't be found ,I think DC can improve his 5-7 record next season and at least be fighting for a play off spot without blowing the team up and having a 3 year rebuild. the 3 year rebuild is a usually what it takes from scratch,but DC has a jump on players and personal that will stay and personal understanding of the team the upper management etc but that;s my view of the situation!
