Ian Rapoport of the Boston Herald reports that former Titans and Bucccaneers quarterback Chris Simms has joined the Patriots’ coaching staff.
Simms’ title is not yet known, but he’s believed to be taking an entry-level position. Simms has a strong connection to Bill Belichick. Chris’ father, Phil, was the Giants’ starting quarterback when Belichick coordinated New York’s defense under Bill Parcells.
A third-round pick in the 2003 draft, the 31-year-old Simms spent five seasons in the NFL. He finished his career with a 7-9 record and 12:18 touchdown-to-interception ratio.
