Coaching career[edit | edit source]

Early career[edit | edit source]

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[edit | edit source]

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]
