The Miami Dolphins’ search for a new head coach continues moving forward.

Team owner Steve Ross and general manager Chris Grier met with New Orleans Saints defensive coordinator Dennis Allen for about four hours on Saturday morning.

According to an NFL source, the Dolphins are also planning to interview Dallas Cowboys passing game coordinator/defensive backs coach Kris Richards on Sunday.

Allen took the Saints 13-3 this season, earning them the Number 1 overall seed in the NFC playoffs, was the third person to interview for the job, and the seventh known candidate.

He previously led the Raiders to an 8-28 record between 2012 and 2014, and was with the Saints when they won the Super Bowl 10 years ago.

Richards is still in his first season with the Cowboys, after serving as a coach for the Seahawks for eight years. He was the defensive backs coach when Seattle won the Super Bowl back in 2013.

The Dolphins finished the season 7-9, leading to the firings of Mike Tannenbaum as their vice president of football operations, and Adam Gase as head coach.

The team interviewed New England Patriots defensive play-caller Brian Flores and Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy on Friday.

Miami is also said to be considering longtime special teams coordinator Darren Rizzi, as well as Pittsburgh Steelers offensive line coach Mike Munchak and Chicago Bears defensive coordinator Vic Fangio for the head coach job.

The Dolphins have one of eight available coaching openings in the league after firing Gase, who went 23-26 overall in his three seasons here.

The Buccaneers, Jets, Cincinnati Bengals, Cleveland Browns, Denver Broncos, Arizona Cardinals and Green Bay Packers are also interviewing potential head coaching candidates.
