Per a report by Miami-based Alex Marvez of FOXSports.com, the first big name on Miami’s list has been revealed.
Two-time Super Bowl winning head coach Mike Shanahan will meet with Dolphins officials on Tuesday to discuss the head coaching job.
It’s mentioned in the report that this will be Shanahan’s second interview with Miami, with the first coming on December 22nd in New York, which is where the next meeting will take place.
Shanahan’s career coaching record, including the playoffs, is 178-144. That spans 20 seasons with the Los Angeles Raiders, Denver Broncos and Washington Redskins.
While coaching Denver he saw the most success, leading the franchise to back-to-back Super Bowl wins in 1997 and 1998.
In addition, Shanahan was also the offensive coordinator for the San Francisco 49ers team that won Super Bowl XXIX in 1994.
Some feel that Shanahan’s most successful years are behind him, especially considering the way his tenue ended in Washington.
