    Dolphins give permission for Vikings and Packers to speak to Rizzi :headwall:

    I love Rizzi, and I'd love for him to stay, but if you gotta get the bag, than you gotta get the bag.

    No matter how good someone is at their job, it’s best for both parties for the employee to find another job if the employee is feeling unappreciated and disrespected.

    NB not saying tbe Dolphins don’t appreciate or rspect Rizzi, it”s about perceived emotions,

    Good for him. Dolphins don't deserve him.

    Why are you acting like Rizzi should have just been gift wrapped the job?

    Who said anything about gift wrapping? He should have been given a fair shot, which he wasn't. He was the last interview after Grier had already made up his mind. He has paid his dues with us and is respected and appreciated by all the current and former players. No gift wrapping necessary, he would have earned it.

    I like Rizzi as much as the next guy, however, all he earned was an interview.

    Is that a fact? Some inside information you have.

    IMO, he's using the interviews as leverage for a salary bump.... he's going to stay with us (if Flores want him, obviously).

    Guy's been in Miami for, what, a decade? Don't think he's going to move on for another ST job.

    I think you are right and I hope the Dolphins will make it worth his while to stay.

    We could potentially move him from an ST coord. to OC or DC maybe?

    You don't have to worry about him following Gase to NY. The Jets extended their current ST coach (who did a great job last season).

    Yeah I saw that this morning. As far as Rizzi goes, I'd hate to lose him because he is an excellent ST Coach but I would understand and would not blame him one bit.

    With all the regime changes he has been through with the Dolphins, if anyone can make it work here, he can. If as you say, he moves on, I won't blame him either. He's a good dude! I will wish him the best except when he is playing our Dolphins. :D

    Did he even earn that?

    Players love him...so what? That in NO WAY means you are a good HC candidate.

    He coached our special teams well...I appreciate that and he has talent in that field. Where is our overwhelming success he has provided us in other areas?

    He was already the assistant HC and unless Gase told him to sit down and shut up, he should be sharing some of the blame for our failures.

    Okay...how, other than by being liked. What makes him a HC candidate? It was a courtesy interview, which is just an idiotic concept to begin with.

    Pretty sure Rizzi will never be a HC and if he is, it's likely to burst into flames given his history.

    Funny enough, though we think we had good ST units our ranks haven't even been that good. That might just be an illusion as well.

    Again, as our assistant HC he should be sharing the same blame as Gase.
