Andy Dickerson
Assistant Offensive Line

Biography

Andy Dickerson enters his sixth season as the Rams’ assistant offensive line coach in 2016. He came to the Rams after serving in similar roles with the Cleveland Browns and New York Jets.

Dickerson helped coach an offensive line that protected QB Case Keenum, who set career-highs in attempts, completions, completion percentage, passing yards and passing touchdowns in 2016.

For the third-consecutive year, the Rams boasted one of the NFL’s top rookie runners in 2015. The Rams’ offensive line blocked for Offensive Rookie of the Year and rookie Pro Bowler Todd Gurley to rush for 1,106 yards, which placed him third in the NFL in rushing yards. The Rams finished seventh in the NFL in rushing offense and allowed the fewest sacks in the league (18).

With the help of the St. Louis offensive line, RB Tre Mason finished second among all rookies and led the Rams with 765 rushing yards in 2015. As a team, St. Louis averaged 102.2 rushing yards per game, giving them at least 100 yards per game in each of Dickerson’s three seasons with the Rams.

In 2013, St. Louis averaged 21.8 points per game, the club’s highest point total since 2006, and the team’s offensive line had a great impact on the team’s play. RB Zac Stacy rushed for 973 yards, third most by a rookie in team history. Over the last 11 games, only six NFL backs rushed for more yards than Stacy. In the passing game, the Rams allowed 36 sacks in 2014, the eighth lowest total in the NFL.

In his first season with the Rams, Dickerson helped guide an offensive line that allowed just 35 sacks after giving up 55 the previous year. St. Louis’ offensive line was forced to deal with its share of adversity as nine different linemen started at least one game. The unit led the league in sacks allowed after seeing significant action from five rookies.

Dickerson spent the 2011 season with the Jets as a coaches’ assistant. He first broke into coaching as a member of their staff from 2006-08, with coaches’ assistant and defensive quality control responsibilities. He also spent two years with the Cleveland Browns, serving as assistant offensive line coach in 2010 and defensive quality control in 2009.

Before joining the Jets staff, Dickerson worked in the operations department of the New England Patriots, first as an intern in 2004 and then on a full-time basis the following year. He began his NFL career with the Washington Redskins as a training camp intern in 2003 before spending that season as a graduate assistant on the offensive staff at Tufts University.

Dickerson played collegiate football at Tufts from 1999- 2002. He also performed in the shot put, discus and hammer throw on the school’s track and field squad. Before that, he was a three-sport captain in football, wrestling, and track and field at Tower Hill School in his hometown of Wilmington, Del.
