Who would it be? It can be for the offense or defense or even special teams as a coach and it can be a player from the 80s,90s or 2000s The player you choose should be considered as a player who you think would make the transition from player to coach a successful one. It can be for ANY coaching postion including head coach,offensive coordinator,defensive coordinator,linebackers coach,defensive backs coach,special teams coach,running backs coach,wide receivers coach,tight ends coach ect: There is 2 rules regarding this though... 1) The former Patriot must still be alive today 2) The former Patriot can no longer be in the league as a player but could have left the league with another team (for example Curtis Martin) My choices would be Andre Tippett as linebackers coach - The man still spends alot of his time around the team and its developments and he certainly was a leader on the defenses of the 80s and I could see him being a very good linebackers coach,he could still do the job,hell he could probably play linebacker better than some of our guys today. Ben Coates as Tight Ends Coach In an area where we have not had alot of great talent the past decade, we certainly can use a former player who knew how to play the game and this position for this team,the transition would be interesting to say the least but with our 2 young draftees added in to the offense,he would have some good new talent to work with and help them along to try and become as good as he once was. Of course transition from player to coach and for being out of the game for quite a while could be a factor but I went with two old timers anyway .
