Dolphins Scheduled To Interview STs Coordinator Darren Rizzi Friday


Mike Garafolo of NFL Media reports that the Dolphins’ interview with special teams coordinator Darren Rizzi will take place on Friday.

Garafolo adds that Miami is not expected to hire a new head coach anytime soon and their other candidates for the job are all still coaching in the playoffs anyway.

The list of reported interviews for the Dolphins includes:

  1. Patriots DC Brian Flores 
  2. Chiefs OC Eric Bieniemy
  3. Cowboys passing game coordinator/DBs coach Kris Richard 
  4. Dolphins STs coordinator Darren Rizzi
  5. Saints DC Dennis Allen 

Rizzi, 48, began his coaching career at Colgate back in 1993. He worked for a number of schools before being hired as Rhode Island’s head coach for the 2008 season.

Rizzi lasted just one year at Rhode Island and led the team to a record of 3-9 before he was replaced.

The Dolphins hired Rizzi as their special teams coordinator in 2010 and he’s remained in the position ever since.
