Chris Mosley, an assistant offensive line coach for the Miami Dolphins, has left the team, the Sun Sentinel has learned.

Mosley's absence cannot directly be connected to the workplace issues that have engulfed the Dolphins since offensive tackle Jonathan Martin left the team last week.

His departure took place in early October, and his role has been filled by Marco Rivera, a coaching intern, for at least the past five weeks.

"Chris was on an extended leave dealing with a personal matter, and he and the organization mutually agreed to part ways," a team spokesman said.

But considering the source of the Dolphins' workplace environment scandal centers around the offensive line unit, and what took place inside those meetings, it is possible Mosley could become part of the NFL's independent investigation into Martin's allegations that some Dolphins players bullied him, and created a hostile work environment.
