BOSTON (CBS/AP) — New England Patriots Director of Player Personnel Nick Caserio has reportedly turned down the Miami Dolphins’ offer to become their next general manager.
According to multiple reports late Saturday night, Caserio will stay with the Patriots, where he’s been since 2001.
Caserio was among three candidates to meet with the Dolphins for a second interview Saturday. The team also interviewed Tampa Bay Buccaneers director of player personnel Dennis Hickey and Tennessee Titans vice president of player personnel Lake Dawson.
Brian Gaine, the Dolphins’ assistant general manager, had a second interview Friday.
A decision is expected soon on a replacement for Jeff Ireland, who left after six seasons on Jan. 7 when he and owner Stephen Ross agreed to part ways.
Caserio, the Patriots’ director of player personnel, met with Miami for the first time Friday.
