Dolphins courting Pete Carroll

The Miami Dolphins dream situation is to persuade Bill Cowher into thinking about coaching the Dolphins. A offer of 9 million per for 4 years is believed going to be offered to Cowher representatives in the next week. With the slim chance of Cowher returning this season the Miami Dolphins are exploring all of their options including college footballs most prestige coach Pete Carroll.

Dolphins owner Wayne Huizenga flew Sunday to Costa Rica, where Pete Carroll is vacationing, to interview the USC coach for the Dolphins’ vacant head-coaching job, according to multiple reports.While they guage Carroll’s interest in returning to the NFL, the Dolphins will continue their interviews today when they speak with Minnesota defensive coordinator Mike Tomlin. Miami has already interviewed Bears defensive coordinator Ron Rivera, Bears offensive coordinator Ron Turner, former Falcons coach Jim Mora, Georgia Tech coach Chan Gailey, Pittsburgh offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt and San Diego offensive coordinator Cam Cameron.

Russ Grimm will interview for the Arizona Cardnals vacancy but he is a long shot to get the job. As it looks right now Norm Chow is the favorite and will be reunited with quarterback Matt Lineart.
