As the Dolphins play a totally meaningless game today, come 4pm when the final whistle blows the only thing that will matter in Dolphin-land is who the next head coach will be. And the names are flying around Miami fast and furious.
Jay Glazer on with Mike Francesca of WFAN out of New York reported that the Dolphins want to hire a "big name" coach but will end up also interviewing a ton of assistant coaches. Two names he hears for Miami are Mike Pettine (Jets defensive doordinator) and Joe Philibin (offensive coordinator of the Packers, but doesn't call the offensive plays.)
Peter King on TwitterSaturday afternoon is saying the rumors of Brian Billick to Miami are very real. Peter also said Bill O'Brien (Patriots offensive coordinator) and Vic Fangio (49ers defensive coordinator) are names to watch out for.
UPDATE Sunday 10:53am::: Adam Schefter of ESPN is reporting that Bill O'Brien is the leading candidate to take the Penn St head coaching job
