One year after being a part of a Super Bowl winning outfit, Dave DeGuglielmo is out of the job.
The New England Patriots reportedly parted ways with DeGuglielmo on Monday according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. The dismissal arrives one day after Tom Brady took more hits in one game than any quarterback since 2006.
DeGuglielmo, who was the team’s offensive line head coach since the 2014 season, coached a unit that battled injuries throughout the season.
However, in their greatest hour of need, the New England offensive line submitted one of the worst postseason performances by an offensive line in recent memory.
When the franchise quarterback gets pummeled in a game with a Super Bowl berth at stake, somebody is going to pay the price.
