Brian Daboll, a Patriots assistant during Bill Belichick’s first seven seasons in New England, is returning to the team.
Belichick announced today that Daboll is coming back, and will begin working with the team right away, helping in the playoffs just as assistant Josh McDaniels did a year ago.
Daboll was an assistant in New England from 2000 through 2006, but he left to follow Eric Mangini to the Jets in 2007. After two seasons as the Jets’ quarterbacks coach, Daboll later spent two seasons as the Browns’ offensive coordinator, one season as the Dolphins’ offensive coordinator and the 2012 season as the Chiefs’ offensive coordinator.
Now the Patriots will have one more offensive coach helping out as they try to win two more games.
