The Patriots have set their coaching staff for the 2020 season and it includes some new faces, some promotions and a few transitions to new positional groups as New England continues to finalize details in preparation for the start of training camp.
Four new coaches will join the staff, including quarterbacks coach 杰德·费希, assistants 泰勒·休斯 (offensive) and 维尼尔·森塞里 (defensive) and special teams assistant 乔·休斯顿, while 科尔波波维奇, 卡门bricillo, and 布莱恩·贝利奇克 were promoted from assistant positions.
Demarcus Covington, 特洛伊·布朗 and 斯蒂芬·贝利奇克 will all be coaching new position groups this season, as they continue to build experience in multiple areas. New England traditionally keeps a small and versatile staff and this year is no exception.
