The New England Patriots are losing one of their defensive assistants to the New York Giants.
According to Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald, Patriots linebackers coach Patrick Graham is leaving the team to join Ben McAdoo’s staff with the Giants as a defensive line coach.
Graham has spent the last seven seasons as an assistant under Bill Belichick with the Patriots. After joining the team as a defensive assistant in 2009, Graham became the team’s linebackers coach in 2011. He moved to the defensive line for 2012-13 before returning to linebackers in 2014.
Graham was a defensive lineman at Yale before moving into coaching upon graduation.
