Patriots name Brown defensive backs coach
FOXBORO, Mass. -- The Patriots have hired Corwin Brown as the team’s defensive backs coach, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Last season, Brown served as defensive coordinator under Charlie Weis’s staff at Notre Dame, and previously coached the New York Jets’ defensive backs from 2004-2006.
He also played for the Jets in 1997 and 1998, when Patriots coach Bill Belichick was the team’s assistant head coach and defensive backs coach.
The Patriots are also in need of a defensive coordinator after Dean Pees left the team earlier this month.
