The New England Patriots have fired offensive line coach Dave DeGuglielmo. He took the blame for the beating that Patriots legendary quarterback Tom Brady took in the AFC Championship game loss to the Denver Broncos.
He’s been the team’s offensive line coach for the past two seasons. He replaced Dante Scarnecchia, who retired.
Prior to arriving on Bill Belichick’s staff, he worked with the New York Jets on Rex Ryan’s staff. Earlier this season, he was praised for his work with the team’s offensive line, before the line was devastated by injuries.
This is more of a victim of circumstance than anything else. It was hard to protect the 38-year-old passer, who is slow against the best defense in the NFL.
In addition, Marcus Cannon, who is a right tackle, made the switch to left tackle. Cannon gave up 2.5 sacks, five hits and had a false start penalty.
Volume gave up 7 hits and a 1/2 sack. Kline gave up five hits and had a false start penalty.
Stork allowed up two hits, but also had a head-butting penalty. Mason only gave up one hit.
