Dylan Roney

Defensive Assistant


An up-and-coming defensive coach, Dylan Roney comes to Los Angeles as a defensive assistant after serving as a graduate assistant the past three seasons at the University of Michigan. In Ann Arbor, Mich., Roney assisted Mike Elston with the defensive line, specifically working with edge rushers, including eventual No. 2 overall draft choice Aidan Hutchinson during his unanimous All-American season in 2021. Roney assisted on a defensive coaching staff that oversaw the top-ranked unit in the country in 2023, allowing just 17 touchdowns on the season and averaging 247.0 yards allowed and 10.4 points allowed per game.

Roney began his playing career at Navy before transferring to Ferris State, where he helped lead the Bulldogs to three consecutive NCAA Division II Playoff appearances, including getting to the semifinals as a junior in 2016. Roney then got his start in coaching, joining the Ferris State coaching staff in 2018 before spending the 2019 season at Western Kentucky as a defensive graduate assistant. He then went to work as a defensive analyst at the University of Illinois, a role he held in 2020 before joining the Michigan staff in 2021.
