Foxboro, MA (Sports Network) - Former Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Brian Daboll will be joining the New England Patriots' coaching staff for the remainder of the team's postseason run, head coach Bill Belichick revealed in a conference call on Monday.
Daboll, who also served as an offensive coordinator for Cleveland (2009-10) and Miami (2011) prior to joining the Chiefs in 2012, will be entering his second stint with the Patriots. The 37-year-old broke into the NFL as a defensive assistant with New England in 2000 before being promoted to receivers coach two years later. He spent a total of seven years with the Pats before leaving to become the quarterbacks coach of the New York Jets under Belichick disciple Eric Magini in 2007.
Belichick said Daboll's role for New England's remaining playoff games has yet to be determined. The Patriots will host Baltimore in the AFC Championship on Sunday.
Daboll spent just one year with Kansas City before being let go when the team fired head coach Romeo Crennel following a 2-14 season.
