The Miami Dolphins are interested in Patriots director of player personnel Nick Caserio for their vacant general manager’s job. The Dolphins confirmed that Caserio interviewed for the position Friday in Miami.

The Patriots have seen a number of departures in recent days, with assistant head coach/offensive line coach Dante Scarnecchia retiring, linebackers coach Pepper Johnson leaving, and tight ends coach George Godsey joining the Houston Texans staff under former Patriots offensive coordinator Bill O’Brien.

Caserio has been with the Patriots for 12 seasons, getting promoted to director of player personnel in 2008. Caserio also was wide receivers coach in 2007, the only year he was not in the personnel department. But he has often been a participant in the team’s practices.

Earlier this month, the Dolphins fired general manager Jeff Ireland after six years.

According to multiple reports, other candidates who interviewed for the job were Titans vice president of player personnel Lake Dawson, Dolphins assistant general manager Brian Gaine, and Browns assistant general manager Ray Farmer.
