Miami Dolphins set to interview two potential candidate for defensive coordinator role

Miami’s search for a new defensive coordinator continues.
The Miami Dolphins are looking for a new defensive coordinator.

Following interviews with former Los Angeles Chargers head coach Brandon Staley and current Buffalo Bills linebackers coach Bobby Babich, the Dolphins are allegedly planning to interview former Minnesota Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier for the defensive coordinator position.

Frazier was the Vikings head coach from 2010 until 2013. During his career, he served as the defensive play-caller. Below are the Vikings’ defensive rankings throughout Frazier’s tenure as head coach:
