The Dolphins have put in a request for a Rams assistant coach who has some experience coaching in South Florida.

Per Tom Pelissero of NFL Media, Miami would like to interview L.A. running backs coach/assistant head coach Thomas Brown for its head coaching vacancy.

Brown, 35, is in his second year as the Rams’ running backs coach. Los Angeles added assistant head coach to his duties for 2021.

Brown was a sixth-round pick out of Georgia in the 2008 draft. After he finished his short playing career in 2010, he began coaching in the college ranks. He made his way back to UGA under Mark Richt in 2015, serving as the program’s running backs coach. He went with Richt to the University of Miami in 2016 and was the program’s offensive coordinator and running backs coach through 2018. After a year as South Carolina’s running backs coach, 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.

  1. None of these guys they are interviewing are as impressive as the last coach they had .

  2. Nothing against Thomas Brown, but is appears management has hung the dart board up again.

  3. Dolphins need to stop beating around the bush. Even if Harbaugh doesn’t get interest from another NFL team, set the interview and hire him.

  4. At this point the Dolphins should just put an ad for HC employment online and see who responds.

  5. I didn’t think Flores was a good HC, but all these prospects are likely to be no better or even worse.

    Looks like Ross has quite the master plan at work here.

  6. Brown gets hired, and the Rams get yet another comp pick. So they should have 8 picks in the 2022 draft (including the max 4 comp picks PLUS the Lions minority hire pick, and 6 in the 2023 draft (plus any 2023 free agent comps and they will have 3 or 4.) So for all of you about to post that the Rams don’t have any draft picks, it looks like they’ll and up with about 17 over the next two years.

    This is how the Rams do business. Trade away high picks, but amass mid and late round picks by drafting well, and letting players walk; as well as trading for valued players in the last year of their contract (and getting the comp pick for THAT player too.)

  7. Hey Myles Simmons, Dan Campbell is the head coach of the Lions, not the DC for the Cowboys. You meant Dan Quinn. Although, as a Miami fan, I wish they could get Dan Campbell back. I wanted him to be HC when he was interim way back.
