In the biggest organizational overhaul since the 2004-2005 offseason, another member of the Patriots' coaching staff has departed. The latest coach to leave the Patriots is TE Coach Pete Mangurian, who was considered one of the favorites to replace Josh McDaniels as Offensive Coordinator. Mangurian is heading to Tampa Bay to join Raheem Morris' staff. This puts the Patriots in a position where they may very well have to look outside the organization to fill holes. Here are the Coaches/Front Office figures who have departed so far:

VP of Player Personnel Scott Pioli (Kansas City Chiefs)

Offensive Coordinator Josh McDaniels (Denver Broncos)

Special Teams Coach Brad Seely (Cleveland Browns)

Secondary Coach Dom Capers (Green Bay Packers)

Tight Ends Coach Pete Mangurian (Tampa Bay Buccaneers)

Oh what the hell. Wasn't Mangurian supposed to be our next OC?

Yeah, that was the speculation. I'm assuming that when O'Brien was promoted to QB coach, Mangurian got pissed and left. :D

Yeah, rotoworld says Mangurian left because he was ticked off he didn't get the OC spot.

Taking a step back from the initial reaction of losing yet another coach... he's been our TE coach since 2005. What exactly have we gotten from that spot since then?

Not much, but then again that may be more of a reflection of the tight ends, rather than Mangurian himself. He has a great deal of play-calling experience, so he could have done a solid job as Offensive Coordinator IMO. But as always, in Belichick we trust.

That's a completely erroneous assumption on your part.

As long as Bill is our Head Coach, we'll be fine.

O'Brien will be the offensive coordinator without the title, the same thing Bill did with McDaniels his first year with calling the plays.

I'm curious to see if Romeo will return to the Pats as an assistant.....him and Bill go back to the Giant days.
