The New York Jets have named Dave DeGuglielmo as the team’s offensive line coach. DeGuglielmo joins the Jets after spending the last three seasons with the Miami Dolphins as their offensive line coach (2009-11).
Under DeGuglielmo in 2011, the Dolphins offensive line blocked for a running game that gained 1,987 yards and produced Reggie Bush’s first career 1,000-yard season. Dolphins tackle Jake Long has been selected to the Pro Bowl during each of DeGuglielmo’s three seasons in Miami.
Prior to the Dolphins, DeGuglielmo spent five seasons with the New York Giants. He was the assistant offensive line coach (2005-08) after being the assistant offensive line and quality control coach in 2004. Under his tutelage in 2008, the Giants set a franchise record and led the league with 2,518 yards rushing and 5.0 yards per carry. He also helped guard Chris Snee and center Shaun O’Hara earn Pro Bowl recognition in 2009.
