Strike Crennel from Dolphins list

Palm Beach Post beat writer Edgar Thompson reports the Miami Dolphins won't hire Romeo Crennel to be their next defensive coordinator, citing an unnamed source.

On Monday, the Dolphins fired Paul Pasqualoni after two years on the job.

Crennel's name has popped up because he was a longtime defensive assistant to Dolphins football operations boss Bill Parcells with the New York Giants, New England Patriots and New York Jets.

Speculation around the NFL is that Crennel, most recently the Cleveland Browns head coach, will be the Kansas City Chiefs' defensive coordinator.
