For those few who thought former defensive coordinator Bill Sheridan caught a raw deal with the Giants, relax. He's landed on his feet. The Dolphins made it official something we knew last week, that he'll serve as Miami's inside linebackers coach.
In an odd twist, he might well end up working under another Giants former defensive coordinator. Mike Nolan, who just left the Broncos, is said to be interviewing for the Dolphins job. If they're smart, they'll take him, as he's always been one of the best defensive minds in the league. Nolan ran Dan Reeves' defense here from 1993-96. Among other things, he's the guy who gave Jessie Armstead, the soul of that 2000 Super Bowl unit, his starting spot.
UPDATE 3:20 p.m.: Nolan got the job.
