Dean Pees Steps Down as Defensive Coordinator

After four seasons at the helm of the Patriots defense, defensive coordinator Dean Pees will join former Patriots Rodney Harrison and Tedy Bruschi on the sidelines. Pees’ retirement comes just 5 days after a 33-14 defeat at the hands of the Baltimore Ravens in the first round of the NFL Playoffs.

Speculation abounds as to who will replace Pees as the Patriot’s defensive coordinator next year. Many outside names, such as Rob Ryan and Dick Jauron have surfaced, as well as internal hires Mike Patricia (LB Coach) and Pepper Johnson (DL Coach).

    Haven’t heard too many ideas on possible replacements… So far, only heard of them promoting within – yet again. I think that well has gone dry. Time to bring in an ex-coach who excelled as a coordinator. There is one guy available that Belichick always raved about… and I am really hoping they bring him in to help this defense.

    Dick Jauron

    Thoughts?

    Any other ideas?
