Monday night’s special teams meltdown in Miami cost special teams coach John Bonamego his job.
Dolphins coach Tony Sparano announced the team has “moved on” from Bonamego as of Tuesday morning. Assistant Special Teams coach Darren Rizzi, who had no prior NFL experience before joining Miami in 2009, will take over.
Bonamego was the team’s special teams coordinator since 2008. Monday night’s game wasn’t the first time he’s taken heat.
“This was a tough decision,” Sparano said. “I thank Bono for all he’s done. Players need to take responsibility too.”
