The Miami Dolphins will interview Mike McDaniel for their vacant head coach spot today or tomorrow, depending on who you ask. According to reports, McDaniel sounds like the favorite for the job but it’s hard to believe anything on the internet these days. He did however receive some strong endorsements from his current boss and a former coach. Mike Shanahan said McDaniel deserves the opportunity due to him being such a big part of what the San Francisco 49ers do on offense. Robert Saleh echoed Shanahan’s praise and hopes he doesn’t have to face McDaniel twice a year if he were to get the Dolphins job.
