Kevin O’Connell isn’t the only Los Angeles Rams assistant coach drawing interest from other teams this year. Thomas Brown is, too.

According to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network, the Dolphins have put in a request to interview Brown for their head coaching job. Currently, Brown is the Rams’ running backs coach and assistant head coach, playing an important role on Sean McVay’s coaching staff.

Brown is only 35 years old and joined the Rams in 2020 as their running backs coach before also taking on the position of assistant head coach this year. Pelissero notes that Brown reminds some in the NFL of a young Mike Tomlin, which is high praise for the young coach.

Brown could be the latest Rams assistant to leave Los Angeles to become an offensive coordinator or head coach. Brandon Staley, Zac Taylor and Matt LaFleur have all made that jump successfully.

O’Connell is also on a similar trajectory, receiving interest from the Panthers (OC) and Broncos (head coach).
