Report: Dolphins interview Browns' Daboll for OC vacancy

Add Brian Daboll to the list of candidates for the Miami Dolphins' offensive coordinator opening.

Daboll interviewed Wednesday with the Dolphins, the *South Florida Sun Sentinel* reported, citing a league source.

Dallas Cowboys tight ends coach John Garrett also interviewed Wednesday with the Dolphins, a league source told NFL Network insider Jason La Canfora.

The other candidates for the job, left vacant by Dan Henning's retirement, are San Diego Chargers tight ends coach Rob Chudzinski, who also is a candidate for the Carolina Panthers' offensive coordinator vacancy, and former Cleveland Browns coach Chris Palmer, Dolphins coach Tony Sparano's mentor.

Palmer, who brought Sparano into coaching at the University of New Haven in the 1980s and into the NFL as the Browns' quality-control coach in 1999, currently is coach of the United Football League's Hartford Colonials. He was the Houston Texans' offensive coordinator from 2002 to 2005.

Daboll has been the Browns' offensive coordinator for two seasons after stints on the New England Patriots' and New York Jets' staffs. But Browns coach Eric Mangini was dismissed Jan. 3, and St. Louis Rams offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur was announced Thursday as the replacement.
