The Dolphins had a void to fill in the coaching ranks after Steve Hoffman left to become the special teams coordinator for the Chiefs.
Tony Sparano reached back into his Rolodex to hire Darren Rizzi as Miami's new assistant special teams coach.
Rizzi worked under Sparano at the University of New Haven and was most recently the head coach at Rhode Island.
Hoffman's primary duties with the team involved coaching the kickers and punters. Those responsibilities will now likely fall to Rizzi.
