The Miami Dolphins are on the search for a new defensive coordinator after their talented defense underperformed in 2022, ranking No. 24 in opponent points per game.

They have interviewed a number of candidates already, but the one added to the list on Wednesday, already appears to be the favorite to land the job. Former Denver Broncos head coach Vic Fangio's interview will reportedly be more substantial than that, with potential terms and conditions of his contract being discussed as well, according to ESPN's Josina Anderson.

That certainly sounds like the Dolphins might have found their man. If head coach Mike McDaniel thinks of him that highly already, then it seems like it's Fangio's job to lose.

Fangio has always been highly regarded as a defensive coordinator and should excel with a defense as young and talented as Miami's. It sounds like the Dolphins know what they want, so don't be surprised if both sides come to an agreement sooner rather than later.
