FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) -New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick has filled another vacancy on his staff, hiring Chad O'Shea as receivers coach.
O'Shea comes to the Patriots after three seasons as an offensive assistant with the Minnesota Vikings. He replaces Bill O'Brien, who became New England's quarterbacks coach after offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels - who also was quarterbacks coach - became head coach of the Denver Broncos.
The Patriots on Wednesday also hired Jason Licht as director of pro personnel. Licht previously worked for the team from 1999-2003, first as a scout and later as assistant director of player personnel. He then moved to front office jobs with the Philadelphia Eagles and Arizona Cardinals.
