A person familiar with the team's coaching search said Fisher was interviewing for the job. The person confirmed the interview to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the Dolphins hadn't commented.
Fisher arrived aboard owner Stephen Ross' helicopter. He's believed to be the Dolphins' top choice, and Ross is willing to pay big money, but competition from other NFL teams may be fierce.
Fisher has a career record of 142-120 (.542). He led his team to at least 12 wins four times. He coached more games for one franchise than all but six coaches, all Hall of Famers.
However, his most recent playoff victory came in January 2004. His most recent winning record was in 2008 when the Titans squandered the No. 1 seed in the AFC by losing in the divisional round.
