Coach Bill O'Brien announced Monday that quarterbacks coach George Godsey has been promoted to offensive coordinator.
O'Brien and Godsey ran the offense together last season. Now Godsey has the official title to show for it.
Their history goes back to Georgia Tech in 2001, when Godsey played under O'Brien. When O'Brien was promoted to offensive coordinator with the Patriots in 2011, he brought Godsey in as tight ends coach.
O'Brien wanted to take his right-hand man along to Penn State in 2012, but Bill Belichick blocked the move.
