George Warhop (born September 19, 1961) is an American football offensive line coach for the Jacksonville Jaguars of the National Football League.

Coaching career

Early career

Warhop was named the offensive line coach of the Kansas Jayhawks on January 11, 1986.[1] He was named the offensive line coach for Vanderbilt on February 21, 1989.[2] After coaching the Commodores in 1989, Warhop resigned on December 13, 1989,[3] and took the New Mexico offensive line coaching job on December 17, 1989.[4] After coaching the Lobos in 1990, Warhop resigned and became the offensive coordinator for the London Monarchs of the World League of American Football.[5] Warhop spent two seasons with the Monarchs before he was hired as the offensive line coach for Southern Methodist on February 17, 1993.[6] He spent the summer of 1994 as a minority intern for the Denver Broncos of the National Football League.[7] From 1994–1995 Warhop worked as the offensive line coach for Boston College.[8]

National Football League

Warhop was named the co-offensive line coach for the St. Louis Rams on February 8, 1996.[9] In the 1997 NFL Draft the Rams took offensive tackle Orlando Pace with the first overall selection. Pace held out of training camp for three weeks to get a bigger contract, and Warhop was angry, stating that Pace "lost a good part of the year." In an attempt to speed up the playbook-learning process, Warhop was assigned as a special tutor for Pace.[10]

Warhop was hired by the Arizona Cardinals as the offensive line coach on February 10, 1998.[11] His contract expired at the conclusion of the 2002 season, and was not re-signed.[12]

Warhop was hired by the Dallas Cowboys as their offensive line coach on January 16, 2003, following his tenure with the Cardinals.[13] In 2003 and 2004 the Cowboys' offensive line only allowed 37 sacks, while in 2002, the year before Warhop was hired, they surrendered 54 sacks.[14] After two seasons with the Cowboys, Warhop was fired on January 7, 2005.[15] Shortly after he was fired, he interviewed for the Florida State Seminoles' offensive line coach position,[16] but did not get the job.

On January 27, 2005, Warhop was hired by the San Francisco 49ers as the offensive line coach.[17] In 2006 Warhop's offensive line allowed a league-worst 55 sacks, and the 49ers hired a second offensive line coach, Chris Foerster, to share the duties.[18] Warhop was fired in-season on October 23, 2008 after his offensive line gave up a league-worst 29 sacks to that point.[19]

Warhop was hired by the Cleveland Browns as their offensive line coach on February 4, 2009.[20]
