The San Diego Chargers have seeked permission from the New England Patriots to interview their defensive coordinator Matt Patricia. The Chargers are looking to find their next head coach.
Former Chargers head coach Mike McCoy was let go by the team following their 37-27 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. McCoy was 28-38 in his four-years with the team.
Patricia has been the Patriots defensive coordinator since the 2012 season. He’s been with the Patriots since the 2004 season.
He began his tenure under Bill Belichick in 2004 as an offensive coaching assist. Then, in 2005, he moved to be an assistant offensive line coach.
From 2006 to 2010, he was the Patriots linebackers coach. He spent the 2011 season as the Patriots safeties coach.
Patricia has never been a National Football League head coach. He’s interviewed for head coaching positions before though.
He began his coaching career as a graduate assistant with Rensselaer (RPI) Engineers in 1996. He was the Amherst Lord Jeffs defensive line coach for two seasons in 1999 and 2000.
Patricia moved on to being an offensive graduate assistant with the Syracuse Orange from 2001 to 2003 before joining the Patriots.
