The New England Patriots have a lot do this off season after moving off of legend Bill Belichick after 24 seasons and going with Jerod Mayo at head coach. After going 4-13, the worst record in more than two decades for the team, the Patriots made a change at head coach and now they have fill out the rest of the coaching staff. They will have the 3rd overall pick in the draft, and will look to make a full rebuild following their worst year in decades.
New England Patriots Bringing In DeMarcus Covington
The Patriots are looking for both a new offensive and defensive coordinator, and now it has been reopretd that they have found their DC. According to Sports Illustrated’s Albert Breer, defensive line coach DeMarcus Covington is going to land the job. Covington has held that role as the defensive line coach for four seasons and now should be upgraded to the DC.
He has helped develop players like Christian Barmore and Deatrich Wise, in addition to having star Matthew Judon play his best football with is time in New England. It was now reported that the Patriots notified other candidates that Covington is going to get the job to be the new DC behind new head coach Jerod Mayo.Hiring Covington also is in line with what New England has been doing by bringing in talent from within the organization and building from within.
Jerod Mayo Has A lot More Work To Do
Mayo will have a lot of work to do this off season to get this team back on track, and this should be the first domino to fall. They will also need to look for a new offensive coordinator as Bill O’Brian is out for them and going back to college football. Once they have the coaching staff set they will have a huge draft and free agency this year to bring in more talent.
Mayo was quoted about making some big moves including drafting a quarterback with the third overall pick, and getting more talent in free agency saying:
“We’re bringing in talent 1,000 percent,” Mayo said Monday on WEEI’s The Greg Hill Show. “We have a lot of cap space — and cash. We’re ready to burn some cash!”
It is clear now that there is a new era in New England, and Mayo is already making a bunch of moves to get this team back to being competitive next year. DeMarcus Covington will be the first big move to go down as their is not any real interest in anyone else. They will have to look for an offensive coordinator soon as once they have all the coaching staff in place they can go full force for the draft and free agency to turn this team around.
