Head coach Bill Belichick does not go anywhere, but several positions on the Patriot staff will look quite different for the 2019 season as a result of an ever-changing coaching carousel.

The Patriots also say that Mick Lombardi is an offensive assistant. Lombardi is the son of Mike Lombardi, who was in New England's staff earlier this decade.
Defensive line coach Brendan Daly reportedly leaves the same position with the Kansas City Chiefs. Chad O & # 39; Shea, Jerry Schuplinski and Josh Boyer, who had the role of receiver coach, assistant quarterback coach and cornerback coach with the patriots, all seem to be in Flores staff.
