There is nothing better than a fellow local coach succeeding at the next level.  The Miami Dolphins hired Anthony Weaver as their new defensive coordinator to replace Vic Fangio.  He is a great defensive mind coming over from the Baltimore Ravens defensive staff.  He was a standout player at Saratoga Springs and was a captain on Notre Dame and had a great career there.  Below is my quick take on this as seen in the Times Union:
Another great opportunity for Saratoga grad Anthony Weaver who has been named new defensive coordinator of the Miami Dolphins. Weaver has succeeded wherever he's been in the NFL both as a player and assistant coach and his goal is to someday be a head coach. The former Notre Dame captain interviewed for head coaching jobs in Atlanta and Washington before landing in Miami as the DC. Not a bad spot with a team that will make the playoffs and have a chance to reach the Super Bowl next season. Weaver was a high school and college football star who played six seasons with Baltimore and Houston in the NFL from 2002-2008. His resume is stacked with success and the Dolphins will reap the benefits next season.

Weaver inherits a great situation they have going in Miami as they have a talented group of defensive players that are fast, athletic, and aggressive.  They also feature arguably the most talented and physical corners in the entire NFL.  I can't wait to follow along this season in Miami for Anthony Weaver and wish him the best of luck in the 2024 NFL season.
