Back To The Drawing Board: Dolphins Look For New Approach To Fund Stadium Upgrades
Published January 9, 2014
UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT: Garfinkel said that the Dolphins tomorrow "will hold their first interview" to fill their vacant GM position. While Garfinkel would not name the first interviewee, he said that the team "would soon release a list of prospective candidates who agree to be identified." In West Palm Beach, Andrew Abramson notes Garfinkel does not believe that previous experience as a GM "would be required." The Dolphins and Buccaneers reportedly have "requested permission" from the Giants to interview team VP/Player Evaluation Marc Ross (PALM BEACH POST, 1/9). In Ft. Lauderdale, Omar Kelly cites a source as saying that Ross is "looking for a team player, someone who can foster 'a more harmonious organization.'" Garfinkel yesterday said of the ideal GM candidate, "A football person. Intellect, a collaborative team player. Someone who is creative and has an open mind" (South Florida SUN-SENTINEL, 1/9).
