The Miami Dolphins are interested in Patriots director of player personnel Nick Caserio for the team's vacant general manager job.
The team confirmed Caserio interviewed for the position Friday in Miami. ESPN's Adam Schefter first reported the news.

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 with 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. He has, in some capacity, helped in the coaching department as well. Caserio was the team's 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.
The Dolphins fired general manager Jeff Ireland after six years.
Tennessee Titans vice president of player personnel Lake Dawson, Dolphins assistant general manager Brian Gaine, and Cleveland Browns assistant general manager Ray Farmer were all interviewed for the position, according to multiple reports.
