Dolphins GM interviews: Ray Farmer confirmed to have met with Miami

New, comments

The Miami Dolphins interviewed their fourth candidate for the team's vacant General Manager position yesterday, the team announced. The latest potential replacement for Jeff Ireland is the Cleveland Browns' Ray Farmer.


The Miami Dolphins have announced the fourth interview for the General Manager position vacated by Jeff Ireland last week. On Friday, the team completed interviews with Dolphins Assistant General Manager Brian Gaine, Pittsburgh Steelers Director of Football and Business Administration Omar Kahn, and Arizona Cardinals Vice President of Player Personnel Jason Licht. Saturday, the team added Cleveland Browns Assistant General Manager Ray Farmer.

Farmer began his NFL career with the Philadelphia Eagles as a linebacker, playing for them from 1996 to 1998. Upon his retirement, he worked as a recruiter and academic coordinator for Duke until joining the Atlanta Falcons as a scout in 2002. In 2006, he moved to the Kansas City Chiefs as the Director of Player Personnel, a position he held for seven years before joining the Browns this past year as their Assistant General Manager.

While with the Chiefs, Farmer was one of the few Carl Peterson hires that was retained under the Scott Pioli front office.

The team still has further candidates to interview, with New York Giants Vice President of Player Evaluation Marc Ross, Philadelphia Eagles Vice President of Player Personnel Tom Gamble, and Tennessee Titans Vice President of Football Operations Lake Dawson all still on the team's radar.
