Surprise front-runner for Dolphins' OC job

It's been widely believed that Giants' QB coach Chris Palmer was the favorite to get the Dolphins' offensive coordinator's job.  But the Sun-Sentinel now reports there's a new candidate for that job.  And that new candidate is Dan Henning.

Henning has head coaching experience, both with the Falcons ('83-'86) and with the Chargers ('89-'91).  His record in those 7 seasons was 38-73-1.  Most recently, Henning was the offensive coordinator in Carolina from 2002 until 2006.  In his stint with the Panthers, he helped get them to a Super Bowl and help make Jake Delhomme, Steve Smith, and Mike Wahle pro-bowlers.

This article claims that two sources have said Henning is the "leading candidate" to become the Dolphins' offensive coordinator.
