The Miami Dolphins have completed another interview in their quest for a new head coach. Friday morning's interview was with the team's interim head coach Dan Campbell, who coached the team for the final 12 weeks of the 2015 season. Owner Stephen Ross and Executive Vice President of Football Operations Mike Tannenbaum both stated after the season that Campbell's performance on the season earned him an interview for the job.

Now that is officially complete.

Campbell, who went 5-7 as the interim head coach, was promoted from the team's tight ends coach to replace Joe Philbin after the former head coach led Miami to a 1-3 start on the season. The team gave Campbell this week to put together a plan and find a coaching staff he could bring together if he were to be hired as the permanent head coach.

Miami is expected to interview Doug Marrone, the assistant head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars and former head coach of the Buffalo Bills, later Friday. They are also scheduled to interview Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator and former Oakland Raiders head coach Hue Jackson Sunday. The Dolphins have requested interviews with New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels and defensive coordinator Matt Patricia as well as Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter. No official interviews with any of the three appear to have been scheduled thus far.
