Here's the real reason why the Patriots might not be officially naming Matt Patricia offensive coordinator

Yes, but they also have plausible deniability since it's what they've done with their play-callers for many years. That could come up if the Lions try to complain about it similar to Arkansas with Bielema.

Cheep, cheep, cheep.
Is that Chicken Little I hear???

I don't think that's the intent behind BB's decision. What I believe that this does is allow Judge and Patricia to continue to be paid at a HC rate, per their old contracts. Their HC contracts probably have some sort of offset language in the event that they get fired and find a new job with another team (e.g., the guarantees are revoked if they get hired as coordinators or HC for another team).

So in this way, instead of getting paid coordinator rates, both Patricia and Judge are getting paid at HC rates. I think that's a generous move.

Well they would get paid that amount regardless, it’s just that less comes from the patriots and more from the other team. If BB increased there pay, the pay from the former team would decrease dollar for dollar.
