Kevin Carberry enters his second season with the Rams as the team's offensive line coach.
Carberry joined the Rams after spending three seasons at Stanford as the run game coordinator/offensive line coach.
Under Carberry's guidance, the Rams finished the 2021 regular season tied for sixth in least sacks allowed with 31. The unit started the same five linemen 13 of 17 games played. There were two weeks of the regular season where the offensive line unit did not allow a sack and they allowed just one sack on only seven occasions in 2021.
Carberry's unit also finished seventh-best in QB sack rate (4.9%) and third-best in pressures allowed per dropback (26.8%). In 2021, the Rams offensive line finished on top of the league rankings in average time to pressure allowed on offense (2.67 seconds) and 14th in average time to throw (2.79 seconds).
Despite playing just six games in 2020 compared to 12 in 2019, Stanford saw improvement in rushing touchdowns (15 in 2020 vs. eight in 2019), on third down (48 percent in 2020 vs. 39 percent in 2019) and in red zone offense (touchdowns on 78 percent of attempts in 2020 vs. 47 percent in 2019). Across Carberry's tenure, the Cardinal offensive line produced three All-Pac-12 selections – Walker Little (First Team) and Nate Herbig (Second Team) in 2018, followed by Drew Dalman, who received Second-Team recognition in 2019 and First Team recognition in 2020.
Dalman went on to be drafted by the Atlanta Falcons in the fourth- round of the 2021 Draft. Little was a second-round selection by the Jags in 2021. Herbig signed with the Philadelphia Eagles following the 2019 Draft. Foster Sarell joined the Baltimore Ravens following the 2021 Draft as an undrafted free agent.
In his third season in 2020, Carberry helped the Cardinal offense finish first in the PAC 12 in third and fourth-down conversion rate. Additionally, Stanford finished third in the Pac 12 in total offense averaging 420.2 yards per game. In a COVID-plagued season, Stanford won four-straight road games to end the year.
In his second season in 2019, the Cardinal run game began to take shape behind a retooled and healthy offensive line. Stanford started the same offensive line combination in all six games.
Senior center Drew Dalman anchored the line, earning first-team All-Pac-12 recognition. Walter Rouse also earned honorable mention All-Pac-12 honors from his left tackle spot.
The Cardinals scored 15 rushing touchdowns in just six games during the 2020 campaign, a marked improvement from rushing for just eight touchdowns in 12 games during 2019. The Cardinals improved on third down (48% in 2020 vs. 39% in 2019) and red-zone offense (78% TDs in 2020 vs. 47% TDs in 2019).
In his second season, Stanford started six different offensive line combinations, losing three week one starters to season- ending injuries. Four true freshmen started at least one game, including three for each of the final six games of the season. C Drew Dalman led the group in starting all 12 games to earn All-Pac-12 second team honors, while RT Foster Sarell earned honorable mention after starting 11 games. Freshman LT Walter Rouse played in all 12 games and started the final 11 after All- American Walker Little was injured in the season opener. Barrett Miller started the final eight games of the season at left guard and Jake Hornibrook the final six at right guard. Branson Bragg also started a game at right tackle before suffering a season- ending injury.
In his first season at Stanford in 2018, the Cardinals boasted two All-Conference performers on the offensive line, as Walker Little took first-team All-Pac 12 honors while Nate Herbig was a second-team selection. The 2018 Cardinals saw a string of injuries and caused Carberry to use eight different starting lineups in a 13-game schedule. Despite the injuries, Stanford ended the season with a win over Pitt in the Sun Bowl, finishing with a 9-4 record.
Carberry spent the 2016-17 seasons as the assistant offensive line coach with the Washington Football Team and the 2014-15 seasons as an offensive assistant with the Dallas Cowboys.
While with Washington, Carberry and offensive line coach Bill Callahan presided over one of the league's top units, producing two Pro Bowlers (tackle Trent Williams and guard Brandon Scherff) for the first time since 1991. The unit helped power Washington to the third-ranked offense in the NFL, allowing the team to average more than 400 yards per game for the first time in team history and allowing only 23 sacks -- fourth in the NFL.
The tutelage and guidance of Carberry and Callahan were paramount in helping the Washington offense overcome a season- long rash of injuries and still average nearly 325 yards/ game in 2017. Washington used 36 unique groups of offensive linemen (including seven different combinations of six-lineman groupings), as well as eight different starting lineups along the offensive line. Members of the unit were once again honored for their excellence, as Scherff earned his second Pro Bowl selection and Williams earned his sixth consecutive Pro Bowl nod despite battling a year-long knee injury. Together, Scherff and Williams became the first Washington offensive line duo collectively named to the Pro Bowl in consecutive seasons since the 1983-86 seasons.
Carberry was key in the development of sixth-round draft pick Chase Roullier in Washington. As a rookie, Roullier played in 13 games while making seven starts.
In Dallas, Carberry assisted Mike Pope in coaching the tight ends in 2015, when Jason Witten led the team in receptions with 77 and finished second with 713 receiving yards. Carberry also aided in the development of rookie Geoff Swaim. The Cowboys finished fifth in the NFL in rushing yards/attempt (4.6).
In 2014, Carberry assisted Callahan with the offensive line. The Cowboys won their first NFC East title since 2009 and finished second in the NFL in rushing (147.1) with running back DeMarco Murray leading the league in rushing and setting a franchise record with 1,845 yards.
Carberry spent the first five seasons of his coaching career at the collegiate level, serving as a defensive graduate assistant at Kansas (2009-11) and coaching defensive ends at Stephen F. Austin (2012-13). He helped the Lumberjacks defense lead the Southland Conference with 31.0 sacks in 2012 and he also assisted with special teams. At Kansas, he coached with the defensive line and outside linebackers.
Prior to entering the coaching ranks, Carberry competed in training camps of the Cleveland Browns (2005) and Carolina Panthers (2006) and spent the 2005 season on the practice squad of the Detroit Lions. He also played for the Berlin Thunder of NFL Europe in the spring of 2006. From 2007-08, he played in the Arena Football League for the New York Dragons and Philadelphia Soul and was a member of the Soul's 2008 Arena Bowl Championship squad.
Carberry also coached during his playing career, serving as the defensive coordinator, defensive line and inside linebackers coach at St. Ignatius College Prep (Ill.), during his AFL years in 2007-08. In 2006, he was a varsity assistant for Illinois state champion St. Rita High School, his alma mater.
Carberry, a four-year letterman at Ohio, earned All-MAC honors as senior team captain. The defensive lineman graduated from Ohio in 2005 with a bachelor's degree in marketing and earned his master's in sports administration from Kansas in 2010.
Carberry is married to his wife, Emily. The couple has one son, Frank, and one daughter, Elizabeth.
