Three weeks after the announcement of Jerod Mayo’s hiring as the New England Patriots’ new coach, he swiftly assembled his coaching team, finalizing the selection of three coordinators. Notably, the appointment of an offensive coordinator was eagerly awaited following Bill O’Brien’s brief return to Foxboro, spanning just one season before he departed for the same role at Ohio State in college football.

With the hiring of former Cleveland Browns coordinator Alex Van Pelt by Mayo, fans can now anticipate the offensive direction for New England. Van Pelt, known for his coaching connections to the West Coast offense, is expected to introduce a similar system to Foxboro. There’s even speculation about the potential inclusion of a veteran quarterback in the mix.

Although Mayo has hinted at the Patriots using their No. 3 overall pick in the NFL Draft, reports from’s Ian Rapoport suggest that Van Pelt will play a significant role in the decision-making process for the team’s starting quarterback next season. This raises the prospect of the Patriots targeting a familiar figure for Van Pelt in the form of current Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Baker Mayfield. The two previously worked together in Cleveland for three seasons before Mayfield was traded to the Carolina Panthers in the subsequent offseason.
