Dolphins casting wide slow net for 2024 DC

The Miami Dolphins have added Ravens associate head coach and defensive line coach Anthony Weaver to their known list of candidates for their vacant defensive coordinator position.

Weaver joins Brandon Staley, Leslie Frazier, Ryan Slowik, Anthony Campanile and Bobby Babich among the known candidates to replace departing DC Vic Fangio.

Does Dolphins win now stance lean towards veteran coach

One of the reasons being touted for Weaver getting a shot at the open DC job is his prior coaching relationship with Dolphins head coach Mike McDaniel. However, while chemistry is obviously important, forming a boys club around McDaniel isn’t the aim here. It’s winning championships.

Given the teams position you would be forgiven for thinking experience would be the key requisite with only Staley and Frazier having extensive NFL experience. Clearly younger coaches will be the next greats of the game, but it may prove to be a tricky decision for Miami.

In house candidates Slowick and Campanile would be fan favourites, but again, are lacking somewhat in the experience category.
