Report: Ex-Dolphins LB Cox interviews to join coaching staff

Bryan Cox could be the next former NFL player added to the Miami Dolphins' coaching staff.

The team already has hired ex-New York Giants and Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Ike Hilliard as an assistant coach, and sources told the *Miami Herald* on Wednesday that Cox, a former linebacker who started his 12-year career with the Dolphins in 1991, interviewed this week to join coach Tony Sparano's staff.

Cox, a three-time Pro Bowl selection, also played for the New York Jets, New England Patriots, Chicago Bears and New Orleans Saints.

What role Cox could play with the Dolphins isn't known, but he previously worked as an assistant defensive line coach for the Jets and, most recently, as the Browns' defensive line coach under Eric Mangini.

The Dolphins currently have a defensive line coach in Kacy Rodgers and linebackers coach in Bill Sheridan, meaning Cox likely would serve as an assistant to one of those men.
