In the wake of the Patriots’ coaching overhaul, Matt Patricia’s future was left up in the air. The one-time defensive coordinator turned offensive play caller is currently without a role and reportedly without a contract for the 2023 season. He was also one of the few coaches who didn’t take part in coaching the Shrine Bowl last month. As of a report in late January, Patricia was “still assessing his future” but it did sound like there was a chance he’d return to New England in some capacity.
Given the way the Patriots’ offense – and specifically quarterback Mac Jones – performed under Patricia in 2022, there were also questions about whether or not he’d be able to land a job elsewhere this offseason. Apparently, the answer to that question may be yes.
