Former Buffalo Bills special teams coordinator Danny Crossman is expected to be hired in the same role with the Miami Dolphins, ESPN reported Tuesday.
Crossman spent the last six seasons with the Bills but was fired after a mistake-filled season with the Buffalo kicking units.
Miami has yet to officially name New England defensive coordinator Brian Flores as its new head coach. However, Flores is busy assembling a staff of assistants while he prepares the Pats for the Super Bowl on Sunday.
Crossman, 52, has been picked to replace Darren Rizzi, according to ESPN’s Field Yates and Dan Graziani. Rizzi served as special teams chief under recently fired head coach Adam Gase, who has taken over as New York Jets head coach.
Crossman was replaced in Buffalo by Heath Farwell, who spent last season as an aide with Carolina.
Under Crossman, the Bills’ special teams ranked 31st overall in 2018, according to the Rick Gosselin ranking. The Bills’ special teams were seventh in 2017, 24th in 2016, 16th in 2015, second in 2014 and 31st in 2013.
