Gary Miller is reporting here that Miami defensive assistant Todd Bowles will be the 7th HC candidate to receive an interview--on Thursday.
I have only a very vague recollection of Bowles as a player, but found this summary of his career--posted January 2008 (here):
Bowles joins Miami with eight years of experience as an NFL assistant, the past three of which were spent with the Cowboys, where he served as the team’s secondary coach. In his three years in that post, three Cowboys defensive backs were chosen to a combined five Pro Bowls, including three by safety Roy Williams. This year, three-fourths of Dallas’ backfield was selected to the NFC All-Star squad, as cornerback Terence Newman and safety Ken Hamlin will join Williams in Honolulu. Over the past three years, the Cowboys as a team have come up with 52 interceptions, tied for the third-highest total in the NFC. Before going to the Cowboys, Bowles had a four-year stint (2001-04) on the staff of the Cleveland Browns, including the first three years as the defensive nickel package coach and the final season as secondary coach. In that 2004 season, the Browns ranked fifth in the league in pass defense, as they allowed an average of just 181.3 passing yards per game. In Bowles’ first year with Cleveland, the Browns led the league and set a franchise record with 33 interceptions, 28 of which were accounted for by defensive backs, including 10 by rookie Anthony Henry. Bowles’ first NFL coaching position came as defensive backs coach with the New York Jets in 2000, when he helped the unit to a No. 6 NFL ranking in pass defense, permitting an average of only 183.3 yards passing per outing. Bowles, a native of Elizabeth, N.J., was a four-year letterman as a defensive back at Temple University (1982-85). He went on to play eight seasons in the NFL, including stints with Washington (1986-90, 1992-93) and San Francisco (1991). In his career, he appeared in 117 regular season games and accounted for 15 interceptions. He was a member of the Redskins team that captured the Super Bowl XXII championship following the 1987 season. Following his playing career, Bowles worked in the player personnel department of the Green Bay Packers from 1995-96. He was defensive coordinator/secondary coach at Morehouse College in 1997 and defensive coordinator/defensive backs coach at Grambling State from 1998-99.
So, does this mean that PB hasn't found his man after all? The suspense is killing me!!
