From the Boston Globe...
"There is a Scarnecchia on both sides of the Patriots-Jets rivalry, with Dante Scarnecchia entering his 24th season as a Patriots assistant coach, and his son Steve beginning his second year leading the video staff of Eric Mangini.
Mangini said Scarnecchia was an unsung member of the Jets' organization in 2006, helping him motivate players in unique ways.
"He's very innovative," said Mangini, who often showed the Jets tapes of boxing matches discovered by Scarnecchia leading up to games last season. "He's put together some great pieces for us outside of his normal job description, and has that creative side.
"He understands not just the game, but the other side, and how you can fuse things and teach in a lot of different ways. You might be able to draw on experience, whether it's boxing or Olympic hockey, and then teach the players a lesson that corresponds to our game."
Scarnecchia worked in the Patriots' video department from 2001-04 before spending a season at the University of Colorado.
"Just like his dad, he's incredibly hard-working," Mangini said.
