Bears assistant Toub interviews for Dolphins' head-coaching job

DAVIE, Fla. -- Chicago Bears special teams coordinator Dave Toub is the latest candidate to interview for the Miami Dolphins' head-coaching job.

The Dolphins completed a two-day interview with Toub on Wednesday. They've also interviewed former Tennessee Titans coach Jeff Fisher and Todd Bowles, who was Miami's interim coach for the final three games this season after Tony Sparano was fired.

Toub has been with the Bears since 2004 and helped Devin Hester, Johnny Knox, Robbie Gould and Brendon Ayanbadejo win Pro Bowl honors. He was an assistant special teams and defensive line coach for the Philadelphia Eagles from 2001 to 2003.

Toub's ascent to a head-coaching job wouldn't be unprecedented. Baltimore Ravens coach John Harbaugh was the Eagles' special-teams coach for nine years.
