For the second straight season, the New England Patriots are adding some bulk to their offensive coaching staff for the playoffs. Last year it was Josh McDaniels, fresh off the heels of being fired by the St. Louis Rams. This time around it’s former Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Brian Daboll.
Now that McDaniels has moved on to reclaim his spot as the Patriots offensive coordinator, he’s excited to have Daboll back in New England.
“He’s a very good football coach, very knowledgeable and can help us in a lot of different ways. Certainly having another set of eyes with experience and has a lot of understanding of our system and how we go about doing things, I think, is only a positive for us and can help our football team going forward. I look forward to doing that with Brian.”
Daboll was the wide receivers coach for New England from 2002-2006 before moving on to the New York Jets, Cleveland Browns and Miami Dolphins.
Considering he didn’t do any actual coaching during his one year in Kansas City, Daboll should be well rested and ready to help out the Patriots. It’s also one helluva way to potentially score a Super Bowl ring. Has anyone (player or otherwise) ever worked for three weeks and gotten a ring?
