NFL Coaching Rumors (Saban included)

LSU coach Nick Saban has emerged as a prime candidate for the Dolphins' vacant head-coaching position and the NFL Network reported Monday night that he is expected to interview this week.
-- Palm Beach Post

Contrary to the NFL Network report, although their list of coaching candidates eventually might include Nick Saban, the Dolphins have not requested permission from LSU to interview the school's coach. The Dolphins are interested in speaking with former Giants coach Jim Fassel and current Eagles offensive coordinator Brad Childress.
-- Miami Herald

Interim coach Jim Bates said he and owner H. Wayne Huizenga talk each week, but said they hadn't talked about Bates being the Dolphins' permanent coach.
-- Miami Herald

Second-year coach Dennis Erickson's departure from the 49ers appears increasingly inevitable.
-- Washington Post

Over the weekend, it was reported that Erickson was prepared to leave his NFL post on Monday and take over Ole Miss vacancy left by the Dec. 1 firing of David Cutcliffe. But Erickson -- who has three years and $7.5 million remaining on his contract -- announced he was staying with the 49ers.
-- Memphis Commercial Appeal

The whisper is that Saints coach Jim Haslett might not be going anywhere, regardless of whether his team finishes out of the money and misses the playoffs for the fourth consecutive year; if he can keep his team from falling apart at the seams; if he's willing to make changes on his staff; if a couple of more scenarios align and owner Tom Benson is satisfied with the alignment.
-- New Orleans Times-Picayune

In the final year of his contract, Mike Tice has been concerned about whether owner Red McCombs would pick up his $1 million option for 2005. McCombs said he would wait until after the season before deciding Tice's future. But McCombs gave Tice enough of a vote of confidence to suggest he might retain him. Asked to characterize his support for Tice, McCombs said: "As strong as it can be. I don't know if it can be any stronger."
