Former Pats offensive play-caller Matt Patricia reportedly has a chance to land a job as a linebackers coach for the NFC champion Eagles.
The Boston Herald’s Karen Guregian reported the news on Sunday.
It would be a return to the same role he had with the Patriots from 2006-2010, before he moved over to safeties and eventually defensive coordinator with the team.
Denver Broncos coach Sean Payton told media members at the NFL Scouting Combine there was a chance for Patricia to have a role on the Broncos’ staff, after initially interviewing him for the defensive coordinator role. But a possible opportunity with the Eagles could mean Patricia is NFC-bound for the first time since serving as the head coach for the Detroit Lions.
I’m hearing that Matt Patricia has a shot to land with the Philadelphia Eagles on the defensive staff, presumably as a linebackers coach.
