Time has come for Miami Dolphins’ final coaching decision
None of the candidates had been informed of a decision as of Thursday evening.
...there were indications Thursday that it remained a tight race between the two offensive coordinators, with Bowles a fallback option if Ross cannot decide between Philbin and McCoy.
The Dolphins were impressed by McCoy, and he reportedly has the support of Ireland, whose opinions carry significant weight with Ross. But Ross also thinks very highly of Philbin, according to associates.
If Ireland is supporting McCoy, I have a hard time believing McCoy is going to finish as the runner up. Dolphins owner Steve Ross really does put a lot of trust in Ireland. You may recall that Ireland is the same guy who received little more than a wrist slap after asking Dez Bryant if his mom was a prostitute.
