The Miami Dolphins had a series of interviews scheduled through Friday, when interim head coach Dan Campbell will get his chance to talk to the team's leadership. That schedule now extends to Sunday, when the team has added Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator Hue Jackson to the list of candidates getting their sit down with owner Stephen Ross, Vice President of Football Operations Mike Tannenbaum, and the rest of the Dolphins coaching search committee.
NFL Network's Albert Breer reported the scheduled interview, as well as the plan for Jackson to meet with the San Francisco 49ers on that day. Ian Rapoport of NFL Network adds that the Cleveland Browns will also interview Jackson on Sunday.
A busy Sunday for Jackson will come a day after the team's AFC Wildcard Playoff game against their division rivals, the Pittsburgh Steelers. If Cincinnati loses, Jackson will be able to continue to interview whenever the schedule works. If the Bengals win, any first interviews teams want to have with him will have to happen at the Bengals' convenience during the week between the Wildcard and the Divisional rounds. Sunday's scheduling makes the most since for the Bengals, allowing Jackson to complete his interviews in what should be an off-day for the team following their Saturday night game. All interviews, with a Cincinnati win, will have to take place in Cincinnati.
