Before Monday night’s matchup with the Chicago Bears, the New England Patriots had defensive line coach DeMarcus Covington mic’d up during practice. 

Covington is in the midst of his sixth season as a Patriots coach and third as the defensive line coach. He previously served as the outside linebacker coach after two seasons as a coaching assistant. 

On Friday, head coach Bill Belichick discussed Covington’s growth as a coach during his Patriots tenure. 

“DeMarcus [Covington] does a really good job. I met him at Chattanooga and kind of got to know him there. Able to, actually, we hired him that spring after that, if I remember correctly, later in that spring. He’s coached linebackers, coached defensive line, really understands the entire defense. I’m sure he could coach a lot of positions on defense. Young guy that’s really smart, works hard. Has worked with, again, a lot of different types of players, even on our defensive line. That difference between our interior guys and our outside guys is quite distinct. Pass rush, pass coverage, interior run play, so forth. We played a number of different fronts, as we know, some odd fronts, some even fronts, so forth. Pass rush, multiple fronts there. It’s a lot of different techniques to coach. He’s very well-versed in the fundamentals and schemes. He does a good job. Really glad we have him. I mean, we have a good defensive staff, but he does an excellent job and he’s had multiple different roles over the few years we’ve had him. We keep stealing the defensive coaches, but also on offense, Billy Yates and Ross Douglas.”
