    Re: Frazier, Dolphins to meet today

    ESPN's Chris Mortensen calls Jaguars assistant Mike Tice a "darkhorse" to be the Dolphins' next head coach.
    Mort agrees with the general belief that Cowboys assistant head coach Tony Sparano is the favorite, but says Tice could emerge during the interview process. Tice has long admired Bill Parcells, and at 6'7, certainly looks the part. It's debatable whether Sparano (short, mustache, glasses) does. Jan. 3 - 8:38 pm et.

    Minnesota Vikings defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier and former Baltimore Ravens defensive coordinator Rex Ryan, both of who will interview for the head coaching job of the Miami Dolphins, have no ties to Bill Parcells. They do, however, have ties to new Miami GM Jeff Ireland. The Palm Beach Post reported that may signal that Ireland will have a bigger say in who is the next head coach that previously expected.

    Re: Frazier, Dolphins to meet today

    Frazier did a hell of a job this year considering teams averaged 50 pass attempts on us a game.
    Plus it would be nice to keep the same guy in here 2 years in a row....(Tomlin

    Re: Frazier, Dolphins to meet today

    Well it looks like a token interview to fulfill the Rooney rule..

    http://www.miamiherald.com/616/story/370080.html

    Seems to be the case indeed.


    FINS SITUATION GETS EVEN FISHIER

    Taking a page from Raiders owner Al Davis, Dolphins football poobah Bill Parcells is hiring the members of a coaching staff before actually hiring a head coach.

    Or maybe, just maybe, the Tuna already has hired a head coach without hiring him, and said head coach is compiling his staff with Parcells running interference.

    According to Jeff Darlington of the Miami Herald, former Arkansas offensive coordinator David Lee is jumping from a brief stint with Mississippi to join the Dolphins.

    Lee, who worked for four years as a member of Parcells' staff in Dallas, will be the quarterbacks coach in Miami.

    As we heard it on Sunday, Lee's was leaving Ole Miss not to join a ship without a captain, but to work for Cowboys assistant head coach Tony Sparano, who reportedly has been offered (and plans to accept) the head-coaching job in Miami.

    The whole thing stinks.
    In our view, it's another example of the reality that certain (or, as the case may be, every) NFL team consists of folks who will do whatever is necessary to win.
    Whether it's tampering with players under contract, offering jobs to assistant coaches who still have jobs to do with other teams, or videotaping defensive coaching signals, we've learned over the years that breaking the rules is far more rampant in the NFL than most folks realize.


    In this case, Parcells has, by all appearances, lined up Sparano.
    And now Parcells is hiring the guys whom Sparano would be hiring if Sparano were able to actually hire them.


    Meanwhile, Vikings defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier was due to interview on Monday to be the head coach of a team that already is hiring staff members with whom the next head coach will have to work, regardless of whether they know each other, like each other, or share any of the same views about how to run a football team.

    Clearly, the Frazier interview is a Rooney Rule sham, and it'll be interesting to see whether former Parcells player Harry Carson has anything to say about it.

    Though some might think that the right thing for Frazier to do would have been to tell the Tuna to stick it, the reality is that Parcells has tentacles throughout the league -- and pissing him off probably is not the wisest thing to do.

    Um.
    Hmmm.
    Okay, forget everything we just said.

    Re: Frazier, Dolphins to meet today

    Frazier interview legit?

    Vikings defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier is scheduled to speak to Miami Dolphin officials tonight and tomorrow about their vacant head coaching job. But there continues to be alarming stories related to the Dolphins.

    According to The Miami Herald, the Dolphins have already hired David Lee as the quarterbacks coach. That's a fairly significant position. So why would the Dolphins do that? Perhaps because they already have picked out their head coach.

    Sadly, by interviewing Frazier, the Dolphins would fulfill the Rooney Rule, which requires a team interview a minority candidate before hiring a head coach.

    This is a difficult issue, since the spirit of the rule is to promote equity. But, in reality, some good people like Frazier could be dragged through a pointless interview.

    If that proves to be the case, the league needs to revisit this whole rule -- or start punishing the teams that make a mockery of it.

    I think they really need to rethink the rule.
    Yes, I know there was a time during the NFL where it was very racist, considering the NFL didn't even allow black players, until the AFL started picking up very talented players from small, all black schools.
    And then after that, black players weren't allowed to play quarterbaack or center because they "arn't intelligent enough".


    But in this day and age, where the majority of players are black, and coaches have proven that the color of their skin is nothing more than just that, the rule is a joke.
    Tony Dungy, Lovie Smith, Denny Green, Herm Edwards, Marvin Lewis, Romeo Crennel, Mike Tomlin, etc have all put that logic to rest.

    I don't like the rule anymore either. There was a time and place where it may have had relevance, but I have never thought that coercion was a great way to get people to buy into an idea.

    If Parcells knew who he wanted as a coach, that is who he was going to take regardless whether he interviewed a black candidate or not.

    Not sure which one to post this in since there are 4 different open threads discussing the Frazier-Miami interview............

    Various media outlets have suggested defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier as a possible candidate to interview for the Washington Redskins’ head coaching job, which was vacated this week when coach Joe Gibbs retired. But Frazier, who was kind enough to give Access Vikings a call this afternoon, said he has yet to hear from the Redskins....

    Coach says he's still focused on Vikings

    Vikings defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier likes to finish what he starts.

    He started as a cornerback on the famed 1985 Chicago Bears Super Bowl championship team, and he served as an assistant coach on the 2006 Indianapolis Colts Super Bowl championship team....
