Over his two seasons as defensive coordinator, Rodgers’ group has held opposing runners to just 91.1 yards per game, the third fewest in the league during that span. Opposing ball carriers have gained just 3.64 yards per carry, the second best in the league.

In his first season as defensive coordinator (2015), Rodgers’ unit registered 30 takeaways, increasing the team’s total by 17 from the previous season, tying for the third most in the league and the most since the team recorded 31 in 2011. As a whole, the defense ranked in the top 10 in five major defensive categories, including points (No. 9), total defense (No. 4), rushing defense (No. 2), third downs (No. 3) and red zone (No. 1).

Prior to joining the Jets, Rodgers spent seven seasons coaching the defensive line in MIA. During his tenure, the MIA defense totaled 287 sacks, third most in the league during that span, and ranked in the top 10 in opponents’ rushing average (4.02 yards per carry) and rushing touchdowns allowed (80). In 2014, the MIA defensive line produced 30.5 of the team’s 39.0 sacks, the third consecutive season that it accounted for over 70% of the team’s total.
