Brian Flores & Aaron Glenn Candidates To Replace Matt Patricia As Patriots’ DC


According to Ian Rapoport, two names to watch for the Patriots’ defensive coordinator job are LBs coach Brian Flores and Saints secondary coach Aaron Glenn.

Rapoport mentions that Flores is considered the favorite to replace Matt Patricia in New England, but he’s still in the running for the Cardinals’ head coach position and is expected to meet with Arizona this week for a second interview.

Glenn previously played for Patriots HC Bill Belichick, so there is some history between the two.

Flores, 36, began his NFL coaching career with the Patriots back in 2004 as a scouting assistant. He has spent his entire career with New England and held a number of positions including Pro scout, special teams assistant, assistant offense/special teams, defensive assistant, safeties coach and linebackers coach.

Glenn, 45, is a former first-round pick of the Jets back in 1994. He played 15 seasons for the Jets, Texans, Cowboys, Jaguars and Saints.

Glenn began his NFL coaching career with the Browns back in 2014 as their assistant defensive backs coach. The Saints hired him two years later as their defensive backs coach.
