Patriots Hire Jedd Fisch

The Patriots are making a high profile addition to their coaching staff. New England is hiring Jedd Fisch to fill an as of now unspecified role on their coaching staff, a source told Jim McBride of the Boston Globe (Twitter link).

The Patriots are hiring him away from the Rams, where Fisch served as a senior offensive assistant under Sean McVay for the past two seasons. Right before joining the Rams, he was the offensive coordinator and then interim head coach at UCLA. Fisch has never been a full-time head coach, but he’s held a number of prominent assistant jobs. He served as the Jaguars’ offensive coordinator for a couple of years a handful of seasons ago, and he’s still only 43. He also served as Jim Harbaugh’s passing game coordinator at Michigan for two years.

Josh McDaniels currently serves as New England’s offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach, so it’s possible Fisch is coming on under a similarly vague title that he held in Los Angeles. The Patriots have once again had some turnover on their staff, with special teams coordinator and receivers coach Joe Judge landing the head job with the Giants.

    Not sure why the Pats need an offensive coach who scored a whopping 3 points against them in the previous Super Bowl…

        I’m think McDaniels leaves at the start of 2021. And Jedd Fisch could learn the role as an assistant.

    Do we have the right photo there? I thought the Patriots only hired coaches that could master a frown or grimace.

    Wondering if this is prelude.

    Brady leaves or retires this offseason
    Bill retires next
    McDaniels takes over and this is his OC

    Bill def wants to prove he can do it without brady. I’d say 5 more years for him at least

    I felt that Jedd Fisch was a good OC when with the Jaguars. He was also a Scape Goat as many Coaches become with the lowly Jags
