McCoy emerges as leader for Dolphins' head-coaching spot

As the Miami Dolphins get ready to make their decision on their next head coach, Denver Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy continues to have a strong shot at landing the job.

McCoy had a second interview with Dolphins owner Stephen Ross, general manager Jeff Ireland and team consultant Carl Peterson on Thursday in New York, according to league sources, and McCoy was very impressive during the eight-hour meeting.

Green Bay offensive coordinator Joe Philbin and Dolphins interim head coach Todd Bowles are the other finalists for the position. Miami is expected to make a decision within the next day or two. Philbin interviewed with the Dolphinsfor a second time Wednesday.
