Dolphins Owner Stephen Ross talks about coaching search
Ross says Fins are "committed to winning Super Bowls."
MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. – Miami Dolphins Owner Stephen Ross spoke to the media on Sunday immediately after their surprising 20-10 victory over the Patriots at Sun Life Stadium.
Ross revealed that Interim Head Coach Dan Campbell will be a candidate as their coaching search kicks off following a (6-10) season that included the firing of Joe Philbin mid-season. Campbell said, "I appreciate the opportunity to interview for it (the Head Coaching job)."
Ross stated he was pleased with the job Campbell did this season after taking over for Philbin.
On the coaching search, Ross also said, "We are committed to winning Super Bowls here. Today, it's hard to find someone with prior head coaching experience. All great head coaches had to start somewhere. I'm looking for someone who is motivational and will inspire the players to play and change the culture."
Ross also commented on the reports the Dolphins would hire Chris Grier as the new General Manager, "we think very highly of Grier, but nothing is finalized." Grier has been with the Dolphins for 16 years and has been working as the Director of College Scouting. The team parted ways with old G-M Dennis Hickey on Saturday.
Ross opened his session with the media by jokingly stating, "we are undefeated in 2016, it's 2015 I'm disappointed in."
