The staff of soon-to-be Dolphins coach Brian Flores continues to take shape, and it will apparently, not include special teams coordinator Darren Rizzi.
Source: the Dolphins are expected to hire Danny Crossman as special teams coordinator, George Godsey as TE coach and Karl Dorrell as WR coach.

Crossman has most recently been with the Buffalo Bills for the past six seasons, and obviously, not only are the Dolphins familiar with going against his special teams, but so too have Flores and the Patriots been.
There had been speculation that Rizzi might be kept on board by Flores, or whomever the new coach was going to be, as he has been with the Dolphins since 2011 and through three different head coaches.
Rizzi was also being considered by the Green Bay Packers for their special coordinator job, but ended up withdrawing from consideration last week for that position.
Speaking of the Packers, that’s where Flores apparently hiring his defensive coordinato, as Patrick Graham will take over the Dolphin defense when all of this becomes official. It’s also been reported that Jim Caldwell, the former head coach of the Colts and the Lions, will have a large role with Miami’s offense. However, it’s not clear if he will be the offensive coordinator in Miami, as of yet.
Yates also reported the other two offensive hires of Godsey and Dorrell (who’s the former college head coach at UCLA) that will become official soon, too.
And SiriusXM NFL Insider Alex Marvez reported earlier on Monday night that Flores will be hiring former Jaguars and Giants offensive line coach Pat Flaherty to come to Miami, also.
We wrote previously, about the silliness of the NFL not allowing Flores or any other assistant in the playoffs to formally be hired until their team is finished with the postseason. That has made the Fins wait an extra two weeks for Super Bowl 53 to be played on Sunday.
It is believed that Flores will be introduced as soon as Tuesday, as Miami’s new head coach.
