Kacy Rodgers

Defensive Line Coach


Rodgers has spent the past four seasons serving as the defensive coordinator of the New York Jets (2015-18), working under Buccaneers Defensive Coordinator Todd Bowles, then the Jets’ head coach. The Jets defense under Rodgers and Bowles posted one of the best run defenses in the NFL, holding teams to just 4.00 yards per carry, the sixth-lowest figure in the NFL during that span, and allowing only 44 rushing touchdowns, tied for the eighth-least in that timeframe. Rodgers helped defensive lineman Muhammad Wilkerson earn a Pro Bowl berth in 2015, after posting a career-high 12.0 sacks, and helped defensive lineman Leonard Williams – the team’s 2015 first-round pick – earn a Pro Bowl berth in 2016. Under Rodgers, Williams posted the fifth-most quarterbacks hits of any interior defensive lineman (64) from 2015-18.
