    ...the newest member of the Patriots coaching staff:

    "Pleased with Otis Smith's work as part of the NFL's minority coaching program in training camp, Belichick has decided to keep him around for the entire season. Smith, a defensive back who played for the Patriots in 1996 and from 2000-02, has been working primarily with defensive backs."

    let's hope it doesn't come to it, but perhaps he's a possible shadow roster player as well?

    BB just expanded our Practise Squad. Brilliant!!

    BTW ... when Otis runs a tackling drill for our DBs, his coaching advice is "Hit it".

    My Man!!

    Otis "My Man" Smith gave us all of what he had in his tank during that 2001 SB run.

    Will always have a soft spot in my heart for the guy. Glad to hear he's making his way in the coaching ranks.:rocker:

    Good, the coaching staff was getting a little light. I think O-T-I-S will certainly improve the DB play.

    This a great move. O T I S will get another RING! :rocker:

    BB said in a press conference awhile back that the DBs were
    improved over this offseason ... better communication, less mistakes
    ... tighter coverage. He said that the pass defense would be improved
    this year as a result. I guess Otis was a big part of that.
    I'm real glad he's onboard.:D

    I've always loved OTIS and what he's contributed the the Pats, couldn't be happier that he's found LAF(life after football)with us! Congratulations Otis, here's to another ring!

    I am so glad to hear this news. I loved OTIS as a player, even as he started to slow down and I'm glad his influence will now be felt by some of the younger guys. O-T-I-S!!!!

    This is a great addition, really like the combination of different minds and experience that they bring to this team and the field. I imagine Otis is still very familiar with the receivers they will be playing against, and if not obvious in the film will certainly have contacts all over the place.

    One of the smallest staffs in the league. Glad to see them add some top-level help.

    I'm just glad we finally have a DB coach taller than 5'10".

    The Pat's didn't have a DB coach so now perhaps Otis is it.
