When Scott Pioli left the Patriots to go to Kansas City, the Patriots brought in veteran personnel man Floyd Reese, but that arrangement has apparently reached its end.
According to Mike Reiss of ESPNBoston.com, Reese’s contract is expiring and he isn’t expected back with the club in 2013.
The split is described as amicable, and Reese and Belichick have a long relationship going back to their days as assistant coaches with the Lions.
Reese didn’t have final say, but he did help the team with negotiations with agents, while Pioli replacement Nick Caserio worked from more of a scouting perspective.
While Pioli’s still collecting checks from the Chiefs, it’s easy to wonder whether he’ll eventually come home the way old Patriots assistant coaches do.
