The Miami Dolphins have hired a new General Manager, but he wasn't their first choice. In fact, according to reports, Dennis Hickey may have been the fourth or even fifth choice for the Fins, but several other candidates either turned down the job or declined to come back for second interviews.
43 year old Hickey spent the past 18 years with the Tampa Bay Bucaneers, taking on the role as personnel director in 2011.
The Bucs recently hired a new General Manager, but didn't consider Hickey.
Other candidates for the job with Miami may have been concerned over not being able to hire their own head coach. Team owner Stephen Ross wants Joe Philbin around next season.
