Packers linebackers coach Winston Moss got the first interview on Saturday. Devaney hopes to have a new coach in place by Jan. 24, the date of the Senior Bowl.
Interim coach Jim Haslett, who ended the season on a 10-game losing streak but impressed Devaney with an upbeat approach, will be among the finalists. Devaney said recently he'd not make a change just for change's sake.
"People can say 'Get rid of Haslett, hire the flavor of the month,'" Devaney said. "There's no guarantees."
Bowles was Miami's secondary coach and assistant head coach last season after coaching the secondary with the Cowboys from 2005-07.
