Patriots hire new defensive backs coach

Corwin Brown, who last worked as defensive coordinator at Notre Dame, has accepted a position that will keep him in the Belichick coaching tree.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports Brown will be the next defensive backs coach of the Patriots.  Brown played for the Jets when Belichick was an assistant there, and coached defensive backs in New York between 2004-2006 before joining Charlie Weis’ staff at Notre Dame.

It’s unclear if New England’s last defensive backs coach, Josh Boyer, is taking a different job with the Patriots or moving elsewhere. The Patriots traditionally don’t announce coaching changes until their entire staff is set.  The defensive coordinator position remains open.

UPDATE: The Patriots confirmed Brown was added to the staff, but didn’t say in what position.

    @Fail Cat: How did they fare in Josh McD’s first year on the job? Hint: Not as good as in 2007. Playcalling sucked in 09, but give him a chance. Charlie is not available anyway.

    You forgot that Brown first was a Patriots draft pick and played there for Belichik (as DBs coach/asst. HC) before going w/ him & Parcells to NY…

    @Fail Cat – yeah I have to agree. I found the playcalling this year to be so unoriginal and uninspiring. I like the focus on running the ball, but thats about it. And even that is something they got away from late in the game when they were up.
