Patriots To Interview Greg Schiano For Defensive Coordinator Job

Published

on

With the pending departure of current defensive coordinator Matt Patricia, who is set to become the next head coach of the Detroit Lions, the New England Patriots are looking for their next defensive coordinator.

New England is set to officially interview former NFL head coach Greg Schiano, according to Gary Tanguay of NBC Sports Boston.

Schiano served in the NFL as head coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers during the 2012 and 2013 seasons and has  been the Ohio State defensive coordinator under head coach Urban Meyer since 2016.

Schiano was expected to become the head coach at Tennessee, but severe backlash from the news led to Tennessee moving in a different direction.

Around the time of the incident, Patriots’ head coach Bill Belichick was complimentary of Schiano.

“I have great respect and think he’s a great football coach,” Belichick said, according to Pro Football Talks’ Mike Florio. “I’m not really involved in any other situation, but speaking about him as a coach and a person, [I have] the utmost respect and zero reservations. Zero.”

The Miami Dolphins and safety Reshad Jones are likely heading to a divorce, according to the Miami Herald’s Armando Salguero.

Jones, 31, skipped voluntary workouts and the Dolphins seem to be heading to a parting of ways.

The Dolphins have a younger option to play at safety in Minkah Fitzpatrick, and Jones has expressed his unhappiness, in-game, as recent as last season when he took 10 snaps off against the New York Jets.

Miami is likely shopping Jones, who is still productive, but no longer the elite safety he has been in his Pro Bowl years.
