A source close to the situation said the team expects the Dolphins to try to hire Cowboys secondary coach Todd Bowles and linebackers coach Paul Pasqualoni to their staff.
The tie? Both were hired by Bill Parcells to the staff when he was the head coach with the Cowboys.
Parcells grew to be a big fan of Pasqualoni; the two share ties to the East coast and both are old-school, in-your-face coaches. He has been with the team since 2005.
Bowles is a top candidate to be the new Dolphins defensive coordinator. He was hired by Parcells in 2005.
