The Miami Herald reports ex-Arkansas coach Bret Bielema could serve as presumptive Dolphins coach Brian Flores' defensive coordinator.
This one comes out of left field. Bielema is most famous for his power-rushing attacks, but he served on the defensive side of the ball before becoming a head coach. The 49-year-old (on Sunday) has never coached at the NFL level
This morning, I'm only seeing this from Barry Jackson, but he's solid/in the know. But it's speculative:
Flores holds former Wisconsin and Arkansas coach Brett Bielema in high regard, and the two have gotten to know each other well in the past year, with Bielema currently working as a consultant to Patriots head coach Bill Belichick.
One source briefed on the situation said he believes Bielema - along with others - is receiving consideration for the Dolphins’ defensive coordinator job and could end up on Miami’s coaching staff in some role.
Another candidate for the defensive coordinator job, as Sirius XM’s Alex Marvez noted, is Packers defensive run game coordinator and inside linebacker coach Patrick Graham.

It's worth noting the Dolphins interviewed him for their HC job back in 2012, but passed on him because he wanted to draft Russell Wilson.
