Joe Judge will stay with the Patriots and take on an assistant coaching role with the team next season, according to MMQB’s Albert Breer.
Breer wrote that Judge will work closely with Cam Achord and Joe Houston on special teams.
But, there are some personnel responsibilities that the judge will assume that could end up being quite similar to what Matt Patricia’s role was before he took over as caller.
” A difference [between] Patricia in 21 and Judge in 23, just to illustrate,” Breer wrote. “Patricia’s name was on player contracts back then, and this year Matt Groh’s name is there. The judge’s job will be more about coaching special teams, liaising between coaching and screening, etc.
Judge coached special teams with the Patriots from 2012 to 2019 before being hired as head coach of the New York Giants. The Giants fired the judge before the end of his fully guaranteed five-year contract, so they will continue to pay his salary until 2024.
The 41-year-old returned to New England last season as an offensive assistant and quarterbacks coach.
