Ravens hire Anthony Weaver as defensive line coach

NFL: AFC Wild Card-Indianapolis Colts at Houston Texans Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

According to Dianna Russini of ESPN, the Baltimore Ravens will hire former Houston Texans defensive coordinator Anthony Weaver as the team’s defensive line coach and run game coordinator.

Weaver was a second-round pick by the Ravens in 2002. He spent four seasons with the organization and started a total of 54 games. Weaver was previously the defensive line coach for the Texans from 2016-2019; he was ultimately promoted to defensive coordinator prior to the 2020 season. He also previously spent time as a defensive line coach for the Buffalo Bills (2013) and Cleveland Browns (2014-15) and as an assistant defensive line coach for the New York Jets (2012).

Joe Cullen has served as the Ravens’ defensive line coach since 2016, but he departed on Thursday to join Urban Meyer’s staff and become the defensive coordinator for the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Coincidentally, Weaver got his first coaching job on Meyer’s staff at the University of Florida in 2010.
