Dolphins to interview former Chargers HC Brandon Staley for defensive coordinator role

The Miami Dolphins have made a number of coaching changes in the last week, including parting ways with defensive coordinator Vic Fangio, who has already found a landing spot with the Philadelphia Eagles.

With those moves, they’ll have to find coaches to replace those who have left, and that starts this weekend, as according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Miami is scheduled to meet with Brandon Staley.

Staley, 41, was most recently the head coach of the Los Angeles Chargers, leading them to a 24-25 record in just under three seasons with the team.

Prior to that, he spent time with the Chicago Bears (outside linebackers coach from 2017-18), Denver Broncos (outside linebackers coach in 2019) ad Los Angeles Rams (defensive coordinator in 2021).

Staley worked with Fangio in Chicago and Denver, so he could bring a similar scheme with maybe a more collaborative approach that the Dolphins have been talking about.
