By MyFM's Jake Archer - The New England Patriots kept more continuity on their coaching staff by retaining assistant quarterbacks coach Jerry Schuplinski for the 2018 season. Schuplinski was primed to follow Josh McDaniels to Indianapolis and now, like McDaniels, has decided to stay with New England. This is notable because Schuplinski is one of the men most responsible for the development of both Jimmy Garappolo and Jacoby Brissett.
Schuplinski joined the Patriots as a coaching assistant in 2013 before being promoted to his current position in 2016. He was also teammates with Josh McDaniels and Nick Caserio at John Carroll University once upon a time.
Bill Belichick has praised Schuplinski in the past for his role in getting both of the young quarterbacks ready to start and play well for the Patriots. He will likely be instrumental in the plan to bring along another young signal caller behind the 40 year old Tom Brady. In what was supposed to be an offseason overhaul of the New England staff, we've actually seen a surprising amount of coaches staying on board. Special teams coordinator Joe Judge should be officially signing back on with the team soon as well.
