The New England Patriots announced a significant coaching change ahead of their Week 10 matchup against the Indianapolis Colts in Germany.
The Patriots coaching staff has been rumored to be a much-watch storyline this week. Patriots owner Robert Kraft could look to move on from head coach Bill Belichick on Sunday if the team loses to the Colts. With Belichick’s job on the line this week, the Patriots head coach since 2000 announced a switch to the staff ahead of their flight to Germany.

Klemm was hired by the Patriots this past offseason. Yates has been with the Patriots since the 2021 season. He served as the Patriots’ assistant offensive line coach before receiving his new title Wednesday.
The Patriots offensive line has been one of the main issues why the team is 2-7 heading into Week 10. Pro Football Focus grades the Patriots as the 15th-best run-blocking team but the seventh-worst pass-blocking team.
