also being considered in no particular order: donnie henderson, jerry gray, dick jauron, jim haslett.

"Bernie... Why isn't Capers on the list?"

Well he's a 3-4 guy, and I don't think Linehan wants to play a 3-4.

Also, Capers has told some associates he may take a year off.

"Bernie - Martz the buzz in Miami"

As of late this afternoon, Martz had not been contacted by Miami....

Aren't the Dolphins engaged in talks with Mularkey?
