Dolphins exec Gaine front-runner for team’s GM job

- Associated Press - Saturday, January 25, 2014

MIAMI (AP) - Miami Dolphins assistant general manager Brian Gaine has become the front-runner for their GM job after the team's courtship of New England Patriots executive Nick Caserio apparently fizzled.

Caserio was offered the position Saturday but turned down the Dolphins, according to multiple reports. Caserio, the Patriots' director of player personnel, was interviewed Friday and Saturday.

The team had second interviews Saturday with Tampa Bay Buccaneers director of player personnel Dennis Hickey and Tennessee Titans vice president of player personnel Lake Dawson.

Gaine had a second interview Friday. He has been an assistant to general manager Jeff Ireland, who left after six seasons Jan. 7 when he and owner Stephen Ross agreed to part ways.
