New England Patriots receiver Nelson Agholor kept things mysterious when asked to clarify the team’s coaching situation.
After former Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels joined the Las Vegas Raiders, he brought along the team’s offensive line coach (Cole Popvich), receivers coach (Mick Lombardi) and assistant quarterbacks coach (Bo Hardegree). So that left Nick Caley, the tight ends coach, along with recently-rehired assistant Joe Judge. The Patriots are moving Matt Patricia to the offensive side after a year in the front office. It also seems Vinnie Sunseri (running backs), Troy Brown (receivers) and Bobby Yates (offensive line) are all ascending in their roles with the team after being either assistant position coaches or co-position coaches.
But Agholor wasn’t sharing any of the official changes. He was asked who is coaching receivers.
“You got to ask coach Belichick,” he said.
And who’s running the offense?
“Ask coach Belichick,” he repeated.
Q: “Who’s your receiver coach this year?”
Nelson Agholor: “You got to ask Coach Belichick.”
