Caserio has served as New England’s director of player personnel since 2008. He’s been with the Patriots for 13 seasons, spending 11 of them in the player personnel department. He also served as the wide receivers coach in New England in 2007, and was the director of pro personnel from 2004-2006 with the Patriots.
This interview reportedly comes while the Dolphins have already narrowed down finalists for the job, according to Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald. Per Salguero, Caserio will have the opportunity to move into the finalists pool for the job just a day before Miami moves onto to a second round of interviews with its finalists for the position.
