On Leslie Frazier's interview with the Dolphins
Frazier is a good man and a solid coordinator but most folks don't think he'll get a legitimate shot to be the Dolphins coach. That is not what Frazier told me today so I wrote a story about it that is new to the Herald's website now. Here is the story: http://www.miamiherald.com/news/breaking_news/story/371394.html
Frazier told me this is his first interview for a head coaching job, but given how well the Vikings defense played at times in 2007, and his background with Tony Dungy, I get the feeling it will not be his last.
The conspiracy theorists out there are saying that Frazier was interviewed today only because he is a minority and his agent is the same as that of Bill Parcells and that is all part of the web of intrigue that will ultimately bring Tony Sparano to the Dolphins.
Well, I agree Frazier got this interview in part because he is black. And I indeed am skeptical that anyone not named Sparano will get the Dolphins job.
But Jimmy Sexton -- who is the agent for Parcells and Sparano -- did not serve up Frazier to Parcells simply to fulfill the requirements of the Rooney Rule. How do I know? Because Sexton is not Frazier's agent.
At least that is what Frazier told me.
