Dolphins assistant coach Patrick Surtain to leave for Florida State job

This past offseason, the Miami Dolphins brought in former NFL players Patrick Surtain and Sam Madison as a defensive assistant and cornerbacks coach/pass-game specialist, respectively, on Josh Boyer’s crew.

However, ESPN’s Pete Thamel is reporting that Surtain is leaving the team after just one season to become Florida State’s new secondary coach. He’ll replace defensive backs coach Marcus Woodson, who recently became the co-defensive coordinator at the University of Arkansas.

Surtain will likely continue coaching with Miami throughout their playoff run, which begins with a wild-card matchup against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday afternoon.
