Some changes are coming on the New England Patriots’ coaching staff.
Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports that secondary coach Corwin Brown will not be back with the team. Patriots head coach Bill Belichick hired Brown a year ago, and during the 2010 season Brown split the duties of coaching the secondary with defensive backs coach Josh Boyer, but apparently in 2011 Boyer will handle the secondary alone.
Meanwhile, Reiss and Todd Archer are reporting that Patriots strength and conditioning coach Mike Woicik could be leaving to take a job with the Dallas Cowboys. Woicik was the Cowboys’ strength coach from 1990 to 1996 and has been with the Patriots since 2000. Having been with the most successful franchise in the NFL in each of the last two decades, he has six Super Bowl rings.
Woicik’s contract with the Patriots expired at the end of the 2010 season, so he’s now a coaching free agent. During his previous stint with the Cowboys, current Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett was a backup quarterback in Dallas.
