Bill Belichick Adds Son, Steve, To Pats’ Coaching Staff, Promotes Patricia To Defensive Coordinator

BOSTON (CBS) — Bill Belichick has added one of his sons to the Patriots’ coaching staff.

Steven Belichick is the team’s newest coaching assistant in New England, the team announced Thursday afternoon.

The 24-year-old played lacrosse at Rutgers before walking on to the football team as a long snapper in 2011, and he’s spent the past few years on the Patriots’ sideline, taking notes from his father.

The team also announced that Matt Patricia will officially become the defensive coordinator this season. Patricia has been with the team since 2004, most recently as safeties coach last year.

The rest of the coaching staff rounds out with Josh Boyer as cornerbacks coach, Brian Flores as safeties coach, Patrick Graham as defensive line coach, Pepper Johnson as linebackers coach andĀ George Godsey as tight ends coach.
