Dolphins To Interview STs Coordinator Darren Rizzi Early Next Week


Barry Jackson reports that the Dolphins will interview special teams coordinator Darren Rizzi for their head-coaching job early next week.

Jackson says that the two parties are working to set something up for Monday, but there’s no guarantee as of now.

Rizzi has actually drawn a lot of support from his former players and will be an interesting candidate to watch.

The list of reported interviews for the Dolphins includes:

  1. Patriots DC Brian Flores (Interviewed)
  2. Chiefs OC Eric Bieniemy (Scheduled)
  3. Steelers OL Coach Mike Munchak (Requested)
  4. Bears DC Vic Fangio (Requested)
  5. Cowboys passing game coordinator/DBs coach Kris Richard (Expected)
  6. Dolphins STs coordinator Darren Rizzi (Scheduled)
  7. Saints DC Dennis Allen (Requested)

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.
