Bill O'Brien to take some of the reigns on offense

Written 1.24.09
The Patriots have promoted Bill O'Brien from Receiver coach to Quarterbacks coach. O'Brien was the OC and QBs coach at Duke. He has coached 14 seasons in the College level and has been with the Pats for two seasons. The Patriots have also said that he will have input on the play calling. This seems to be a door that is slightly open. Meaning the Pats are still looking for someone to be the offensive coordinator but if they can not find any one they will go with Obrien with alot of input from Belichick to call 9 routes to Randy Moss. O'Brien is an Andover native and attended Chris Bermans alum in good old Rhode Island. Meanwhile Pete Mangurian who coached the tight ends the last four years and has prior offensive coordinator experience (Falcons 2003) has left the team and is rumored to go to the Bucs.
