SATURDAY, 8:41am: Caserio will continue interviewing with the team today, according to Ian Rapoport (via Twitter).
FRIDAY, 12:38pm: The Dolphins officially announced (via Twitter) that they’ve completed their interview with Caserio.
11:56am: Unsatisfied with their list of general manager finalists, the Dolphins will interview Patriots director of pro personnel Nick Caserio today, reports Adam Schefter of ESPN.com (via Twitter). The news comes a day after one of the favorites for the job, Ray Farmer, withdrew his name from contention.
With Farmer out of the mix, Dolphins assistant GM Brian Gaine and Titans VP of player personnel Lake Dawson are believed to be among the finalists, with Bucs director of player personnel Dennis Hickey also potentially still in the running. The Dolphins were believed to be whittling down their list and approaching the final stage of the process, but by bringing in Caserio, it seems the team hasn’t finished adding to its list of candidates.
Multiple reports have suggested there’s some confusion or uncertainty among the Dolphins’ interviewees about how the power structure in the team’s front office would work, and Caserio has enjoyed plenty of success in his current role with the Pats, so it will be interesting to see if he’s open to leaving New England if the Dolphins decide he’s their man. Andrew Abramson of the Palm Beach Post indicated yesterday that Miami is expected to make a hire next week.
