The dominos are beginning to fall.

With Brian Flores officially being named the head coach of the Miami Dolphins, the now-former Patriots defensive coach will begin the process of building his staff. That, of course, means some of his former colleagues in New England will be joining him.

According to Alex Marvez of Sirius Radio, Patriots assistant quarterbacks coach Jerry Schuplinski is headed to the Dolphins to become that team's quarterback coach.

Schuplinski -- who has been credited with playing key role in Jimmy Garoppolo's development -- has been with the Patriots since 2013, having previously coached at Case Western Reserve for the previous five years. Four years before his collegiate coaching career he served as head coach for  Trinity High.
