Tom Pelissero reports that the Packers scheduled to interview Dolphins special teams coordinator Darren Rizzi for their vacancy on Matt LaFleur’s staff.
The Dolphins are interested in retaining Rizzi, but Pelissero says that they’ve given him permission to explore other options.
The Vikings are also interested in Rizzi, according to recent reports.
Rizzi actually interviewed for the Dolphins’ head-coaching and is very respected by members of the team.
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.
According to FootballOutsiders, the Dolphins’ special teams unit ranked No. 21 in the league.
