The options to become the next head coach of the Miami Dolphins appears to have been whittled down to three names.
NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport reported Thursday that Miami will conduct second interviews next week with Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator Brian Daboll, Dallas Cowboys offensive coordinator Kellen Moore and San Francisco 49ers offensive coordinator Mike McDaniel.
According to Rapoport, "most people think" Daboll is the favorite for the job because of his close relationship with Dolphins owner Stephen Ross and his previous experience coaching quarterback Tua Tagovailoa when he served as the offensive coordinator at the University of Alabama in the 2017-18 season.
Daboll has also had interviews this offseason for head coaching vacancies with the New York Giants (twice) and the Chicago Bears. However, the Bears are reportedly set to hire Indianapolis Colts defensive coordinator Matt Eberflus as their next head coach.
Moore has interviewed with several teams regarding their head coaching vacancies (Dolphins, Jaguars, Vikings and Broncos), but this will be his first second interview with an organization this offseason.
McDaniel has been the right-hand man for 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan for the last decade and is in his first season as the team's offensive coordinator.
