Pees Lands A New Job
Pees and the Patriots parted ways earlier this month. Though initial reports indicated that the team had dismissed Pees, a statement from the former coordinator called the departure a mutually agreed upon break. Pees' contract was set to expire this season and both sides agreed not to pursue renewing the deal.
Pees began his career in New England as a linebacker's coach (2004-04) before inheriting the roll of defensive coordinator upon Eric Mangini's departure to the Jets (2006). Pees' defenses were among the top dozen in the league, even this year the defense ranked 11th overall in total yards (320.2) and despite giving up key scores in crucial situations the unit finished 5th overall in scores (17.8 ppg).
The Patriots have yet to name a coordinator to replace Pees, though speculative reports indicate it may be a hire from within, possibly linebackers coach Matt Patricia or defensive line coach Pepper Johnson.
