Mike Zimmer To The Miami Dolphins Continues Gaining Momentum

Cincinnati Bengals defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer interviewed with the Miami Dolphins earlier this week for the head coaching position that was vacated following the team's decision to fire Tony Sparano in mid-December. Though no moves have yet been made, much of what we expected to unfold started with the first domino falling on Friday following Jeff Fisher's decision to join the St. Louis Rams.

The announcement prompted growing speculation that Zimmer could be the front-runner for the position and he's doing everything he can to impress Miami enough for another look.

According to NFL Network Insider Jason La Canfora, Zimmer had a great interview with the Dolphins and "could" be asked back for another.

If the Bengals lose Zimmer to Miami, Cincinnati will have to go on a defensive coordinator search -- one we hope is already being made as a contingency that Zimmer is hired by Miami.
