The Dolphins have applied for a Rams assistant coach who has coaching experience in South Florida.
According to NFL Media’s Tom Pelissero, Miami would like to interview Los Angeles Running Backs coach/assistant head coach Thomas Brown for his head coaching position.
Brown, 35, is in his second year as the Rams running backs coach. Los Angeles added the assistant head coach to his role for 2021.
Brown was Georgia’s sixth-round pick in the 2008 draft. After ending his brief playing career in 2010, he began coaching in the college ranks. He returned to UGA under Mark Richt in 2015, as the program’s running backs coach. He went with Richt to the University of Miami in 2016 and served as the program’s offensive coordinator and running backs coach until 2018. After a year coaching North Carolina running backs South, the Rams hired him in 2020.
This is Brown’s first known interview request of the 2022 coaching cycle. The Dolphins have also requested interviews with Bills offensive coordinator Brian Daboll, 49ers offensive coordinator Mike McDaniel, Cowboys defensive coordinator Dan Campbell, Cardinals defensive coordinator Vance Joseph and Bills defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier.
