Report: Patriots hiring former Jets assistant as RB coach

The New England Patriots plan to hire Taylor Embree as their running backs coach, according to a report from NFL on CBS’ Jonathan Jones.

Embree, who got his coaching start as a graduate assistant at UNLV in 2012, most recently worked with the New York Jets from 2021-2023 as their running backs coach.

He served as the tight ends coach at Colorado in 2020 and also served as a defensive assistant for the Kansas City Chiefs in 2016. He also gained experience as an offensive quality control coach for the San Francisco 49ers from 2017-2019.

Embree played the wide receiver position at UCLA and tallied 137 catches for 1,776 yards and four touchdowns during his time with the program.

With this latest hire, New England is closer to filling out their staff, as coach Jerod Mayo leads a new era of Patriots football.
