Shalise Manza Young of the Boston Globe reported on Wednesday that defensive assistant Corwin Brown and strength and conditioning coach Mike Woicik won't be back next season.

Brown, a former Patriots and Jets player under Bill Belichick and Bill Parcells, coached the defensive backs with Josh Boyer and spent most of the time with the safeties last season. There haven't been any reports just yet regarding the reason behind his departure, nor have we heard of a potential destination.

ESPNBoston is reporting that Woicik is in talks to re-join Dallas. Woicik won three rings in Dallas before coming to New England and adding three more, and has a relationship with Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett.

According to Young current Pariots assistant strength and conditioning coach, Harold Nash, will take over the top role. She points out that Nash also runs the team's player-development program, which was named as the best in the NFL.
