Zimmer talk is getting HOT in Miami

Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com is reporting there is chatter in NFL circles that the Dolphins are leaning towards Mike Zimmer to be their next head coach. Zimmer is also a head coaching candidate in Tampa Bay so the Fins might have to act quick if they want to land him.

Zimmer did spend time in Dallas during the Parcells era there and does have ties to Ireland from their Cowboys days. I know, I know....another Ex-Cowboy but this time the the ex-Cowboy might be a good move for the Dolphins.

IF Zimmer does end up being "the guy" when it comes to offensive coordinators there are two thing to remember. Zimmer has worked with Hue Jackson before and there is a connection there. And Todd Haley has the same agent as Jeff Ireland, so of course there is a connection there. And Brian Daboll is still under contract so he could be kept but I find that unlikely.

UPDATE:: Jason La Canfora of the NFL Network is reporting that Mike Zimmer will interview for the Tampa Bay job on Monday.

UPDATE #2::Omar Kelly is reporting that Mike Zimmer is the front runner for the job currently.
