Updated Report: League Sources Feel Daboll to Dolphins

Pat Leonard
@PLeonardNYDN

Several league sources believe Bills OC Brian Daboll is the favorite to be the Miami Dolphins' next head coach.

If Daboll takes that job, Dan Quinn & Brian Flores are the leading contenders to be the Giants' next head coach, to me. NYG's done significant work on both.

If so

The plot thickens.

As someone who likes Flores this isn’t necessarily a bad development.
some additional context  
Anando : 1/26/2022 6:21 pm : link
Ugh  
Trainmaster : 1/26/2022 6:21 pm : link
Bad news IMHO. Don't want any part of Flores.

I hope this isn't true.

The true nightmare scenario is if Mr Bend & Break 2.0 Patrick Graham returns as DC.

I wouldn’t bet the farm of course, but if true, then I’m happy if it’s Flores and would be extremely pissed if it’s Quinn
If he is going to bet his career on Tua

Not sure I want him here. That said, it sounds like a bunch of talk based on nothing.
BC man, come on down.

Better be Flores then

Want absolutely no part of Quinn or Frazier.

Yeah. The fact that Daboll thought more of Tua than Hurts - a correct view - doesn’t mean he thinks Tua is a big time NFL QB.
many were unconvinced by my post yesterday

pin this but Leonard was wrong about the DC search the other day.
Yeah...not sure I am buying it  
Emil : 1/26/2022 6:31 pm : link
Dolphins have had one interview with Daboll, and that was last week. No word (unless it's late breaking) that a second interview has been set up.

This sounds like more conjecture and prediction based on history. "Daboll coached Tua in college and it would make sense for them to reunite". Ok maybe, but maybe not. Tua doesn't exactly translate seamlessly to pro-style systems.

Quinn is growing on me.

It took awhile to sink in that my dream of Harbaugh is not happening.

Leonard has been wrong about alot, hopefully that trend continues.

Quinn or Flores would be disasterous.
Sounds

like Daboll's agent fed Leonard some bullshit so the Giants ante up for Daboll's asking price.

I was wondering the same thing.
RE: Want absolutely no part of Quinn or Frazier.  
Trainmaster : 1/26/2022 6:39 pm : link
100% agree on Frazier. I tend to agree on Quinn. I think there is a Peter Principle at play with Quinn; excellent DC, but crappy HC (like Spags).

Daboll is my preference,  
Go Terps : 1/26/2022 6:40 pm : link
but Flores and Quinn are fine choices. This was a strong group of candidates.

The thing about Quinn is the amount of attention he is getting around the NFL. He must have a great reputation.
that said  
Eric from BBI : Admin : 1/26/2022 6:42 pm : link
everyone thinks Quinn is going to Denver.
Watch, it will be Frazier.  
Big Blue '56 : 1/26/2022 6:42 pm : link
😂
Quinn  
Toth029 : 1/26/2022 6:42 pm : link
Was not a good coach. Only time his team did anything remotely positive is when he had Kyle Shanahan. I'd hate that.
Somebody leaks that the Giants like Quinn  
jeff57 : 1/26/2022 6:44 pm : link
Now somebody leaks that Miami like Daboll. Sounds like roundabout contract bargaining.
Am I the only one who doesn't have a strong preference for HC?  
j_rud : 1/26/2022 6:45 pm : link
I feel like it's a fairly underwhelming group outside of Harbaugh. And while I see the allure with Daboll but after 2 of our last 3 were disastrous 1st timers there's certainly a lot to be said about Quinn or Flores who have shown they can handle the job. But they also come with their own concerns.

Maybe it's just a residual losing hangover but none of them inspire a ton of confidence.

He's apparently incredibly well-liked. Also lends credence to the rumor that he'd bring Mike McDaniel in as OC which I'm sure would be attractive to teams.
 
ryanmkeane : 1/26/2022 6:46 pm : link
I think Flores would be the best chance for the Giants to get back to legit relevancy, and quicker than maybe we’d anticipate. The Dolphins might have a worse roster than us and look what he was able to do there. I hope he gets the gig. But I’ll be on board with whoever they choose.
Anyone remember when  
Emil : 1/26/2022 6:46 pm : link
The Eagles were about to hire MacAdoo out from underneath the Giants?
Leslie Frazier would be such a meh hire.  
FranknWeezer : 1/26/2022 6:46 pm : link
I could get behind the likes of Brian Flores. Heck, he may bring back Judge as his ST Coordinator!


I kid...

Eric on Li : 1/26/2022 6:46 pm : link
show that he refuses to be leveraged by anyone. miami and their best cardiologist can take him. put the league on notice he's not running a best friends club.
Why is Harbaugh not in the mix?  
Matt M. : 1/26/2022 6:47 pm : link
Regardless of Daboll's status, I would feel better if we at least give him a call.
I don’t get the attraction with Quinn.  
Section331 : 1/26/2022 6:47 pm : link
2 good years in Atlanta with Shanny, then busted once Shanny left. His defense in Dallas this year was underwhelming to say the least, 19th in yards and. 26th in points. Hard pass.

Yea Pat Leonard isn’t credible. I’m not saying this can’t happen but I don’t think Leonard actually knows anything. He’s goal as always is to generate clicks by pissing giants fans of that’s it.
I still think it's one of the two Brians-  
SFGFNCGiantsFan : 1/26/2022 6:52 pm : link
Daboll or Flores.

The more I read about Quinn...fine. I think he'd assemble a good staff.

Leslie Frazier...Lord no. And good luck selling that hire!
Leonard must have a nice gig if this indeed is him speculating...

Make shit up, rile some up, & move on as if nothing happens if Daboll ends up here as HC. & then repeat a week or two later with DC options.

There is no chance in hell that a first time GM would bring on a domineering HC like Harbaugh.
