Patriots announce coaching staff, Joe Judge coaching QBs and Matt Patricia offensive line

Patriots head coach Bill Belichick has been tight-lipped this offseason about how his coaching staff would be structured, but with training camp opening, New England has finally announced its full coaching staff.

The most noteworthy titles on the staff are former Giants head coach Joe Judge getting the title of offensive assistant/quarterbacks, and former Lions head coach Matt Patricia getting the title of senior football advisor/offensive line.

On any other team, that would be surprising: Judge was the Patriots’ special teams coordinator before he became Giants head coach, and he has never coached quarterbacks before. And Patricia was the Patriots’ defensive coordinator before he became Lions head coach, and he has mostly coached defense in his career.

But it’s less surprising with Belichick, because Belichick has always done things his own way. And Belichick announced in March that the Patriots wouldn’t give any coach the title of offensive or defensive coordinator this season. Cam Achord has the title of special teams coordinator.

Both of Belichick’s sons are also on the staff: Brian Belichick is safeties coach and Steve Belichick is linebackers coach.

There’s still no word on who will be calling the plays in New England, either on offense or on defense.

  1. Two easy Ws for the Bills. Nobody circles the wagons like Buffalo!!!

  2. Two really fantastic head coaches going back to Kindergarten jobs which they can handle.

  3. What does a former defensive coordinator know about the offensive line? Patriot running backs and Mac Jones beware.

  4. Two really bad head coaches who are teaching in areas they know nothing about. Sounds like a great plan.

  5. As always trying to skirt around the Rooney Rule. No one was interviewed. Just having old pals back

    Pretty sure they split the regular season
    Then the playoffs for the Bill. And NOBODY circles the drain in the playoffs like the Buffalo Bills

  7. Weaklings like Brady never belonged in the NFL. No wonder he cheated to get ahead but we don’t need to acknowledge or respect anything he did after that. Cheaters don’t get the benefit of the doubt for anything.

  8. Is Judge going to be assistant Quarterback/offensive coach or assistant TO the Quarterback/assistant offensive coach?

  9. Speaking from personal experience, I never want to be in a situation where my boss is the head honcho’s son. Belichick having his two sons on staff as coaches seems like a very bad idea.

  10. Nihilistic you got it right. I had a similar situation. I am a Pats fan. Two of the best coaches you can find are related? Oh well. Six rings. Only going to worry about what I can control.

  11. The biggest shocker is not that Bill’s two sons are on the staff, or that two failed proteges are slinking back to the nest. The biggest shocker is that Cam Achord retained his position as special teams coordinator. Patriots special teams were horrible last year. But Achord followed BB from end to end on the sidelines all season. I guess Bill likes that more than results on the field. I think BB has stopped asking himself, “Is this the best thing for the team?” before any big move. New question looks like, “Do I like these guys?”
    My “In Bill We Trust” bucket has rusted out, the paint is chipping and the handle broke.
    I wonder if Kraft is starting to feel duped?

  12. This coaching staff of nepotism hires and prior nest leaving/returning failures just shows how incredible of a coach BB is.

  13. I used to think the success the Patriots had in the past was 50% Brady, 50% Belichick. Having seen what Tampa has done and what the Patriots have done in the past 2 years has me changing my mind. And with BB bringing in two failed hHCs to coach positions they never coached before, well, enough said.

    They will be the scapegoats for Belichick. Watch out.


    Tom Brady is nothing but a nice little system QB with a little arm. At his best he is Alex Smith. Great only when the team around him is great. Very ordinary if it’s not.

    He ain’t no GOAT and he ain’t nothing special.

    Oh yeah and he cheated too. All of his accomplishments mean nothing. 🙁

  16. GMG,

    If someone accuses you of stealing his money and says that you hide the money in under your underwear, are you going to drop pants to prove you are innocent?

    Stop pulling the “destroying phone” evidence, OK?

  17. GMG for someone that pretends to be a Patriots fan you sure let Brady consume your head. This thread was not even about Tom Brady.

  18. Brady got lucky joining a loaded Patriots team in 2001 and then joined a loaded Tampa team in 2020. Before that Brady was a QB who couldn’t beat out Brian Griese for the starting job at Michigan and a 199th overall draft pick.

    Well said.

    Seriously what’s the difference between Tommy and Alex Smith? I don’t see it. Smith is awesome too when you put him on a loaded team like Tommy has had most years. Look what he did to Tommy’s Patriots twice.

    Take away the all star team and well the results are not pretty. Tommy being lousy in 2019 and getting shut out by Taysom Hill. Yikes.
