After much speculation, it’s officially official. Bill O’Brien will be the Patriots’ next offensive coordinator. All is right with the world again.
Alabama OC/QB coach Bill O’Brien has returned to New England and is being named the Patriots offensive coordinator, sources tell @ClowESPN and me. O’Brien was a Patriots’ assistant coach from 2007-2011, and now returns to coach Mac Jones, whom he briefly worked with at Alabama.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) January 24, 2023
