Anthony Weaver to become Dolphins defensive coordinator

Weaver became Baltimore's defensive line coach in 2021 and was promoted to assistant coach/defensive line in 2022.

Weaver was the Texans' defensive coordinator for one season (2020), before coach Bill O'Brien was fired and his coaching staff was dismantled. Weaver spent five seasons on the Texans' coaching staff and also coached with the Browns, Bills and Jets.

The 43-year-old Weaver interviewed for head coaching positions with the Commanders and Falcons during the recent NFL recruiting cycle.

Head coach John Harbaugh said Friday that Weaver will be a future head coach in the NFL and confirmed that he is a candidate to join Miami as their coordinator.

“Anthony Weaver… runs the entire defensive front and does a great job of passing plays,” Harbaugh said. “He does a great job on the defensive line. He's also my assistant head coach. He's an exceptional leader. He's interviewing for head coaching jobs already this year.”

“If he gets this job (in Miami), I will be happy for him.”

Weaver, a former defensive lineman, began his NFL career playing for the Ravens in 2002 as a second-round pick and spent four seasons in Baltimore. He played his final three seasons with the Texans before beginning his coaching career.
