Jerod Mayo Named Patriots Assistant Coach

In a story first reported by NBC Sports Boston’s Tom E. Curran, former Patriots linebacker Jerod Mayo will return to the team as linebackers coach.

A first round draft pick in 2008, Mayo played eight seasons logging 808 tackles in 103 games before retiring in February 2016.

During his career, Mayo was selected to two Pro Bowls and an All Pro in 2010 when he led the NFL with 175 tackles. He was NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year in 2008.

Mayo will work under newly hired defensive coordinator Greg Schiano who replaced Brian Flores.

On Instagram Wednesday, Mayo shared his reaction to the news.

Dear Friends, Family and Patriots Nation, It is with great excitement, passion, and sense of purpose to share with you that I have accepted Coach Belichick's offer to rejoin the New England Patriots as a Coach. I am eager to get started and work hard alongside so many of my former coaches and teammates, all who I know to be solely focused on maintaining the winning culture we have come to know as the Patriot Way. I want to thank my loved ones, The Kraft Family, Bill Belichick and most importantly my wife Chantel and our four children, for their constant support as we enter this exciting new chapter of our lives. LETS GOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!! #lfg #i'mback #unfinishedbusiness #patriots
