GREEN BAY, WI (WHBL) - Packer offensive coordinator Joe Philbin is the latest candidate to interview for the head coaching position in Miami. He was in talks with Dolphin team officials on Saturday. Philbin has been with Green Bay since 2003 and was promoted to offensive coordinator in 2007. The Dolphins’ first choice is said to be former Tennessee Titans coach Jeff Fisher, but Chicago Bears special teams coordinator Dave Toub and interim Miami coach Todd Bowles have also been interviewed. Bowles took over when Tony Sparano was fired with three games left in the season.
Meanwhile, Green Bay Packers outside linebacker coach Kevin Greene was named a finalist for the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday. Greene played for the Rams, Steelers, Panthers and 49ers. He has been eligible for induction for the last eight seasons, but this is the first time the five-time Pro Bowl selection made it to the finals. Greene was one of the most outstanding outside linebackers in the history of the 3-4 defense. When Greene retired, he had the third-most sacks of any NFL defender in history. He will be considered for induction when the selection committee meets in Indianapolis the day before Super Bowl XLVI. Greene will need 80 percent of the vote to be elected.
