Dolphins Hiring Danny Crossman As STs Coordinator, George Godsey As TEs Coach

Field Yates reports that the Dolphins are expected to hire Danny Crossman as special teams coordinator, George Godsey as TEs coach and Karl Dorrell as WRs coach under Brian Flores

Crossman replaces Darren Rizzi as the team’s special teams coordinator.

Crossman, 51, began his coaching career at U.S. Coast Guard Academy as their DBs coach/special teams coach in 1993. He worked for a number of colleges before the Panthers hired him as their special teams coach in 2003.

Crossman eventually worked his way to special teams coordinator before departing for the same job with the Lions in 2010. After three years in Detroit, the Bills hired Crossman as their special teams coordinator in 2013.

However, Buffalo elected to fire Crossman a few weeks ago. 

According to FootballOutsiders, the Bills’ special teams unit ranked last in the NFL.

Godsey, 40, began his NFL coaching career with the Patriots back in 2011 as an offensive assistant. He worked his way up to tight ends coach before he was hired by the Texans as their quarterbacks coach in 2014. A year later, Houston elevated him to offensive coordinator but elected to move on after two seasons.

The Lions later hired Godsey as their defensive assistant-special projects before promoting to QBs coach last year. 

In 2016, the Texans ranked No. 28 in total points, No. 29 in total yards, No. 8 in rushing yards and No. 29 in passing yards with Godsey as their coordinator.
