"Titles are fine, nothing wrong with them," Belichick said in a statement on the team Web site Friday, "but the most important thing is each person's role, that we do everything we can to help the players succeed, everyone collectively getting the job done."
The Patriots hired Corwin Brown as a defensive coach on Jan. 29. He spent the past three seasons as defensive coordinator at Notre Dame.
"Corwin Brown is one of the high-class people in football," Belichick said. "He was a tough, smart leader who was great to coach and those are the traits he brings to our staff."
