MIAMI (AP) - Detroit Lions senior personnel director Brian Xanders has become the sixth candidate to interview for the Miami Dolphins' job of general manager.

The Dolphins confirmed Wednesday that they had completed an interview with Xanders. He was hired by the Lions a year ago to assist the player personnel department in college scouting and pro personnel.

Xanders was the Broncos' general manager in 2009-12 but didn't have final say on roster decisions. Before that he spent 14 years with the Falcons.

Bill Lazor was hired Wednesday as the Dolphins' offensive coordinator. He worked last year as quarterbacks coach of the Philadelphia Eagles.
