Last week, Jake Mendel and I got together to discuss the Miami Dolphins head coaching search—a search that has everyone worried and speculating as to who the next head coach may be.

A search, that as of today, some reports say the front-runner might be a trio of former Dallas Cowboys’ defensive coordinator Dan Quinn, Buffalo Bils’ offensive coordinator Brian Daboll, and Arizona Cardinals’ defensive coordinator Vance Joseph. Others speculate it may be San Francisco 49ers’ offensive coordinator Mike McDaniel and Brian Daboll—a much better alternative (IMO) and one that we’ve talked about at length on the podcast.

If you want to know which head coach candidates I originally wanted the Dolphins to interview (Spoiler alert: They haven’t talked to any of them, at least I don’t think they have) click the link HERE.

But who is our favorite candidate out of those that have scheduled interviews with the Miami Dolphins?

In the latest episode of SBNation’s Phinsider Radio: the Jake and Josh Show, Jake and I discuss a few of Miami’s head coach candidates—but focused on what has intrigued us (And #DolphinsTwitter) most about San Francisco’s Mike McDaniel—and the reason WHY we think he’s the right man for the job.

We also talk briefly about Miami’s future contracts, and houtz goes on a rant about UP!
