— Green Bay Packers offensive coordinator Joe Philbin interviewed for the Miami Dolphins’ head-coaching job for a second time Wednesday.

Philbin met with team owner Stephen Ross and general manager Jeff Ireland in New York City, where Ross has an office. Also scheduled for second interviews in New York this week were Denver Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy and Todd Bowles, the Dolphins’ interim coach for their final three games this season.


The three coaches are finalists for the job after top choice Jeff Fisher turned down the Dolphins on Friday to become head coach of the St. Louis Rams.


Philbin completed his first interview in South Florida on Jan. 7, and he decided to remain in consideration despite his son’s recent drowning in a Wisconsin river. After spending a week away, Philbin rejoined the Packers on Sunday for the divisional playoff loss to the New York Giants.


Philbin has been with Green Bay since 2003 and has been offensive coordinator since 2007, although coach Mike McCarthy calls plays.
