Defensive ends at the University of Miami are going to be tutored by a Pro Football Hall of Famer this season.

The Miami Herald reports that Jason Taylor has accepted a job as the defensive ends coach for the Hurricanes. Taylor was a defensive analyst on head coach Mario Cristobal’s staff last season.

Taylor replaces Rod Harris, who took a job on DeMeco Ryan’s staff with the Texans.

Taylor spent 13 of his 15 years as an NFL player in Miami as a member of the Dolphins. Taylor was a three-time All-Pro and the defensive player of the year in 2006. He retired with 139.5 sacks and was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2017.

  1. Should be a great coach – he was a great DE. Only wish he wore a Bills uniform for his career as he always seemed to wreak havoc on us & just about everyone else he played against!

  2. Those are lucky kids. JT is a class act and a model of what an NFL player should be on and off the field. I hope the players shut their mouths and open their ears because they could get life-changing mentoring few are privileged to receive.

  3. He’s been on the Miami staff for over a year.. just never had a position title until now.
