Stability of the coaching staff The Patriots already saw one member of their coaching staff depart recently: quarterbacks coach Jedd Fisch accepted the head coaching position at the University of Arizona in December, prompting McDaniels to take over his former role on top of his coordinator duties. While that one position will have to be filled one way or the other, the coaching staff as a whole will stay largely intact with both him and Mayo not leaving to take the Eagles job.
