The speculation, or rather rampant rumor over the weekend was that Mike Tice from the Jaguars would be interviewed today and hired by Wednesday. Well, it was in fact…only a rumor. Much to the delight of many a Miami Dolphins fan Mike Tice is not being interviewed today.
According to the Sun-Sentinel, the Phins never got permission to interview Tice and he is not coming to Miami today for an interview…sorry Mike, but your friends were wrong.
The Sentinel also says that Jim Schwartz, the DC in Tennessee was in town this morning and has left after his interview for the vacancy. Schwartz informed local media that the interview went fine but had no interest in talking about it.
Tony Sparano indicated that today he would “…be in Dallas” to wrap up the season ending duties of the Cowboys, his words a possible indication that he will not “…be in Dallas” tomorrow or Wednesday.
The Dolphins need to move quick on Sparano if they have him targeted for the HC position…or whoever they have tagged for it…the Senior Bowl is in two weeks and the Dolphins will want to have their HC in attendence…the Phins will not be coaching one of the teams.
However, the Senior Bowl has been used in years past a place to interview and hire assistant coaches to new staffs. The Dolphins will be very active in that department soon.
