The New England Patriots have hired Alex Van Pelt to be their new offensive coordinator.
Former Bills quarterback, Alex Van Pelt, becomes New England’s new offensive coordinator. Van Pelt has been the Browns’ offensive coordinator since 2020. Although he has held that position for the past four seasons, head coach Kevin Stefanski has been the one calling plays.
Van Pelt becomes one of the most important hires for newly named head coach Jerrod Mayo’s staff. Van Pelt should be bringing in more of a West-Coast based offensive scheme to the Patriots this Fall. During that four year stretch, Van Pelt did call one game for Cleveland in 2020, which was a Browns victory over the Steelers in the playoffs.
The Patriots currently have Bailey Zappe and Mac Jones under contract heading into the 2024 Season. Look for the Patriots to bring in a new quarterback either through free-agency or the NFL Draft. The Patriots currently hold the No. 3 overall pick which could be used to draft a new signal-caller should they fail to fill in the position via free-agency.
