Former Seahawks DB DeShawn Shead joining Dolphins coaching staff

One of the less-famous members of the Legion of Boom when they were at their peak was cornerback DeShawn Shead, who played for the Seattle Seahawks for five years (from 2013 to 2017). In 54 games he totaled 153 tackles, 24 pass breakups and two interceptions. After his time in Seattle ended he spent one season with the Lions, then retired as a player.

Since the 2021 season Shead had been working as an assistant on former head coach Pete Carroll’s staff, working as an assistant defensive backs coach. Now Shead says he’ll be moving on to join Mike McDaniel’s staff on the Miami Dolphins.

It’s a good landing spot for Shead, as Mcdaniel’s staff is one of the most forward-thinking in the league and Miami is a team on the rise in a crowded AFC contender picture. Shead will get a chance to work with one of the best secondary units in the league, featuring Jalen Ramsey, Xavien Howard and Jevon Holland.
