Dolphins Gm Rumors: More Interviews Still To Come

Large_thephinsider The report from Salguero also stated that the Dolphins are doing a "deeper dive" into the candidates they have already interviewed, as well as into other potential candidates, to further vet the potential finalists for the position. The Dolphins have interviewed Miami Assistant General Manager Brian Gaine, Arizona Cardinals Vice President of Player Personnel Jaoson Licht, Pittsburgh Steelers Director of Football Administration Omar Khan, Tennessee Titans Vice President of Player Personnel Lake Dawson, Cleveland Browns Director of Football Administration Ray Farmer, Detroit Lions Senior Personnel Executive Brian Xanders, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers Director of Player Personnel Dennis Hickey thus far. LaCanfora describes the Dolphins interview process as " bizarre ," pointing to Ross' business trip, the fact that the already interviewed candidates have not heard if they will make the finalist list or when a second round of interviews could be held, and the potential of the Dolphins using a three-tiered power structure, with the new GM, Head Coach Joe Philbin, and Executive Vice President of Football Administration all reporting directly to Ross. Apparently, according to LaCanfora, there is also concern that Ross, who is deemed an "absentee" owner because he spends time with his company in New York, would only be reachable when he is not at the team facility by going through Aponte, because Philbin and Aponte are close and, apparently, the new GM would not be able to pick up a phone and call the man to whom he would report. The Dolphins are doing their due diligence in this situation. If the team had rushed to hire the first person they interviewed, or simply promoted Gaine without considering other sources, the media would trash the team for ignoring qualified candidates. Now that they are trying to interview candidates and find the right person for the position, they are getting trashed for taking too long. Is it ideal that the Senior Bowl practices would begin without a General Manager in place for the Dolphins?
