In an odd turn of events, the Dolphins did not interview Vic Fangio yesterday like many presumed. The Dolphins requested a chance to interview him but did not schedule a sitdown with the Bears defensive coordinator. This news is a tad disappointing for some as many would have liked to have seen Fangio as the Dolphins new head coach. Darren Rizzi will get his shot sometime this week, but it appears Kris Richard might be the favorite to land the job.
