Dolphins safeties coach follows Vic Fangio to Eagles, per report

Whoever the Miami Dolphins’ new defensive coordinator is will have to find a new safeties coach.

Joe Kasper is leaving the Dolphins to take the same role with the Philadelphia Eagles, according to NFL Network on Friday night.

Kasper bolts from Miami after one season, following former defensive coordinator Vic Fangio, who took that same post with his hometown Eagles in January.

The safeties coach also goes back to Philadelphia, where he just was before joining the Dolphins. Kasper was defensive quality control coach for the Eagles in 2021 and 2022.

In Miami, Kasper worked with versatile starting safeties Jevon Holland and DeShon Elliott and helped transform Brandon Jones into a reserve safety capable of stepping in under Fangio’s new scheme, which differed greatly from his blitz-heavy role of previous coach Brian Flores and defensive coordinator Josh Boyer.

Before his first stint in Philadelphia, Kasper doubled as defensive backs and quarterbacks coach at Duke from 2018 to 2020.

As for Miami’s defensive coordinator search, Ravens defensive line coach and associate head coach Anthony Weaver has reportedly emerged as a frontrunner, according to Houston-based national NFL reporter Aaron Wilson of KPRC2 in Houston.

Experienced defensive coach Leslie Frazier has also been eliminated from the search, as he is taking an assistant head coach position with the Seattle Seahawks, alongside new coach Mike Macdonald, per NFL Network.

Along with Weaver, remaining known defensive coordinator candidates for Miami are former Chargers coach Brandon Staley, Texans linebackers coach Chris Kiffin and internal candidates in linebackers coach Anthony Campanile and outside linebackers coach Ryan Slowik.
