    Please clarify..When is the earliest we can hire a Head Coach?

    Afterthe game on Sunday, can Ross name a HC? Does the season end there, or after the playoffs and SB? I believe I heard it said that Ross can interview potentials like Gruden, Billick and Cowher now, while working coaches need to wait until the season is over.

    Can someone clear this up, thank you.

    Right after the regular season ends on Sunday. Ross can "officially" start interviewing candidates on Monday. Don't think though that this will only take hours or a few days. This will probably take around 1-2 weeks until a head coach is introduced.

    As long prospective coaches team are in the regular season or playoffs the Dolphins can't talk to them. The exception is the 4 teams that get byes can have coaches interviewed the first week. After that, no coach can be interviewed until his team is eliminated from the playoffs.

    I know we have Ross on "Airplane watch" and thats good to know where he's going. I believe the next really exciting thing for me is the process of interviewing. Who comes to town, how many get interviewed, and the fans and media's reactions. I still am on the fence about the next game. Yes, id love to eliminate the jests, but I'm also looking at the draft placement. So hard! Haha!

    Can't be now. He has to officially give an interview to a minority even though Bowles is coaching the team, he has to grant him an interview for the position of head coach.

    Highly doubtful they would interview more than one candidate per day so the first round of interviews will probably take a week, second round could take another week and then they have to negotiate a contract with the potential head coach's agent. If they come to an agreement I would say it could be close to 3 weeks...if the coach and his agent don't like the contract and decide they don't want to be part of the organization then the process could take longer.

    I would rather they be very thorough and careful in the process than hurry the process through and screw it up...again.

    You can look at it as a win-win situation....that's how I'm looking at it. If we win and knock out the Jets, awesome! If we lose and move up in the draft, awesome! Either way I won't be disappointed.
