Dolphins hire defensive assistant from Brown University

The Miami Dolphins are putting their finishing touches on their 2024 coaching staff after moving on from and parting ways with a number of coaches in recent months.

According to KPRC2’s Aaron Wilson, the Dolphins have hired Matt O’Donnell as a defensive assistant.

O’Donnell, who is a graduate of Brown University, spent the last two seasons coaching their defensive line and cornerbacks. Before that, he spent three seasons with Duke (2016-17 and 2021-22), three with the Houston Texans (2018-20) and two with Southern Mississippi (2014-16).

His time with the Texans is when he crossed over with new Dolphins defensive coordinator Anthony Weaver. At the time, Weaver was the team’s defensive line coach (2018-19) and defensive coordinator (2020) while O’Donnell worked as a defensive quality control coach.
