DAVIE, Fla. (AP) -Minnesota Vikings defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier arrived in South Florida on Monday to be the second candidate to interview for the Miami Dolphins' head coaching job.
The bulk of Frazier's interview will take place Tuesday. Last weekend the Dolphins interviewed front-running candidate Tony Sparano, the Dallas Cowboys' assistant coach.
New general manager Jeff Ireland met with Sparano in Dallas. The Dolphins fired Cam Cameron last Thursday after he went 1-15 in his first year as an NFL head coach.
While Sparano worked with Ireland and new Dolphins boss Bill Parcells when they were with the Cowboys, Frazier has no ties to the new Dolphins regime.
Frazier, 48, was a defensive backs coach and special assistant to Indianapolis coach Tony Dungy for two seasons before joining the Vikings a year ago. In 2007, Minnesota's defense was No. 1 against the run for the second consecutive season but finished 20th overall because a bottom-ranked pass defense.
