The New England Patriots have officially announced Bill O’Brien as their offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach. He will take reins of the Patriots offense in the near future.

We reported on Tuesday that O’Brien was going to be hired by the Patriots. The team waited to make it official.

He comes from the Alabama Crimson Tide. O’Brien spent the last two seasons as their offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach.

“I am looking forward to working with Bill again,” said Patriots head coach Bill Belichick. “He is an outstanding coach and an asset to our staff.”

Young quarterback Mac Jones has an offensive mind to work with. He regressed last season as the Patriots did not have a real offensive coordinator. Not coach had the title “offensive coordinator” on their 2022 coaching staff.

Both Matt Patricia, a renowned defensive mind, and Joe Judge, a former special teams coach, split play calling duties. Patricia was previously the head coach of the Detroit Lions and Judge was previously the head coach of the New York Giants.

But things were not working out with Jones and these coaches. Now, he has a coach who will hopefully take his play to the next level.

While at Alabama these past two seasons, he coached Heisman Trophy winner Bryce Young. He is projected to be the No. 1 overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft.

With this move, O’Brien rejoins the Patriots coaching staff. He was previously on their coaching staff from 2007 through 2011.

He was last their offensive coordinator during the 2011 season. That was before he accepted the Penn State Nittany Lions coaching job in January 2012.
