Anthony Weaver

Run Game Coordinator/Defensive Line Coach

Experience: 10 years


Anthony Weaver, who is in his 12th season of coaching, reunited in 2021 with the Ravens, the team that drafted him in 2002. Following a seven-year NFL playing career along the defensive line – with his first four seasons in Baltimore (2002-05) and his last three in Houston (2006-08) – Weaver began coaching in 2010. He joined the Houston Texans in 2016 as the defensive line coach and was later promoted to defensive coordinator/defensive line coach in 2020. During the 2018 campaign, Houston received another standout season from All-Pro and Pro Bowl DE J.J. Watt, who along with DE/NT D.J. Reader, contributed to a stout run defense that led the NFL in opponent yards per rush (3.44) and yielded a franchise-low 1,323 rushing yards. Weaver also coached DE/OLB Jadeveon Clowney to a third-straight Pro Bowl campaign in 2018, when he posted 9 sacks, 16 TFL and 21 QBHs.
