Longtime Patriots offensive line coach Dante Scarnecchia is no stranger to Super Bowl week, and he made one thing clear: he has little use for Media Night.
“I don’t like being out here with all these people around. I just want to leave,” Scarnecchia told Zolak & Bertrand. “I don’t want to be here.”
Scarnecchia, the longest tenured coach in Patriots history and one of the most well-respected position coaches in the game, retired after the 2013 season and returned to the Patriots before the 2016 season. He announced Monday that he will coach in New England again next season.
“I’m very comfortable where we are. The grass isn’t always greener. I’d have probably married my first girlfriend, but she broke up with me,” Scarnecchia quipped.
“I’m very comfortable. This is home for us. We ain’t leaving.”
Scarnecchia said the balance the Patriots have struck on offense between the run and the pass has been crucial to their success in the last month
“Hopefully that will continue on Sunday, we really need to do that,” he said.
