The interview will be Shanahan’s second for the job after his preliminary interview on Dec. 22, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports.
He spent his most successful years with the Denver Broncos, who he led to back-to-back Super Bowl championships in 1997 and ’98. Over 14 years in Denver, Shanahan accumulated a 138–86 record.
Miami fired head coach Joe Philbin midway through this season, and is not expected to retain interim coach Dan Campbell. He will have the opportunity to state his case for being hired permanently in an interview on Friday, though the chances he stays are slim, reports Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network.
The Dolphins beat the New England Patriots in their season finale on Sunday to finish the year at 6–10 and 5–7 under Campbell.
