Cleveland Assistant General Manager Ray Farmer has pulled out of the running for the Dolphins general manager job, according to CBS Sports reporter Jason LaCanfora. Farmer had been expected to get a second interview for the position.

Farmer pulling out leaves the Dolphins with in-house executive Brian Gaine, Tampa Bay’s Dennis Hickey, Omar Khan of Pittsburgh and Lake Dawson of Tennessee as remaining candidates who have interviewed for the job.

However, candidates for the job have expressed concern about power structure within the front office, saying that owner Stephen Ross has been non-committal about the structure.
