MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. – The Miami Dolphins coaching search goes on, as they look at replace Brian Flores.

According to the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the Dolphins will conduct a round of second interviews next week.

The three names that Rapoport says the Dolphins will be calling back are Cowboys offensive coordinator Kellen Moore, 49ers offensive coordinator Mike McDaniel, and Bills offensive coordinator Brian Daboll.

The common thread with all three is that they are offensive minds.

The Dolphins fired Brian Flores the day after finishing the season with a 9-8 record and missing the Playoffs.

Heading into Thursday, there were 9 head coaching vacancies in the NFL.

Two of those were filled with the Broncos and Bears hiring head coaches.

As for Flores, he is reportedly having a second interview with the New York Giants on Thursday.

Flores is from New York, so a job with the Giants would be a homecoming.
