Patriots coaching staff selected to coach 2023 East-West Shrine Bowl

The New England Patriots and Atlanta Falcons’ coaching staffs have been chosen to work the upcoming 2023 East-West Shrine Bowl game on February 2.

It will be a game featuring the top senior collegiate football players across the country playing in front of NFL scouts. To put this opportunity into perspective, the Patriots drafted Tyquan Thornton, Sam Roberts, Pierre Strong Jr. and Jack Jones after all four played in the 2022 East-West game.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Patriots and Falcons were chosen to work the game because they were the best fit to the criteria as the only non-playoff teams without head coaching or coordinator changes.

The irony behind all of this is the fact that coaching was at the center of New England’s problems throughout the 2022 season, particularly on offense and special teams.

But any opportunity for young players to pick the massive football brain of coach Bill Belichick could be considered invaluable.
