The NFL Combine, taking place this week in Indianapolis, is mostly an event for front office staffers of NFL teams. Along with their general managers teams send scouts and other members of their player personnel departments. Head coaches attend as well but in recent years, the presence of assistant coaches has dwindled.
This year, the Patriots are sending four members of Bill Belichick’s coaching staff. According to Andrew Callahan of the Boston Herald, wide receivers coach Troy Brown and cornerbacks coach Mike Pellegrino are in Indianapolis, along with special teams coordinator Cam Achord and special teams assistant Joe Houston. Callahan notes those four are joining “several front-office members” at the event.
